a quick what - to - wear suggestion for the 2012 design fair in Milan. weather’s a bit on the dreary side and since there is bound to be a lot of colorful displays, i recommend going with solid darker colors to avoid being confused with part of the display. take further note that the lighting is very specific and unflattering, minimize the spectacle by going for matte textures and limited bling. heels are a serious problem for some, just grin and bear it, shuffling along in flats is not a look while a strong heel gives you support and the chance of a better view; if not of the displays, certainly of the other guests; whichever takes your fancy. make sure you get to the bisazza stand, they also always shows off their super spring styles. sunglasses, no - this is not a fashion show. bag, as big as you can carry without ruining your silhouette; try to pack it light though. attitude, foreign nonchalant discernment; if you don’t have an accent, just fake it.
