Milan fashion week is over and while the fashion world has moved on to Paris we are still perusing the best street style looks from Italy. The trend that really stood out is colorful printed coats and of course we just had to show you how to make a fashion statement with your outerwear. Please find our foolproof formulas below.

Printed coat + head to toe black

This is the easiest combo to master but that doesn’t make it any less striking. If you need to turn heads, but are not in the mood to match colors and textures just wear and all-black look and top it off with a colorful coat. No need to think here, as black goes with everything but in our opinion the brighter you go, the better.

Another stylish option is to complement one of the colors in the coats print with a another item in your outfit. Street style photographer Tamu Macpherson is a great example in a tangerine skirt that matches the colors of the print on her suede coat. We love the understated and chic combo of a muted pink coat and an elegant dress in the same mauve shade as the flowers on the coat.

Don’t be intimidated; this combo is easier to get right then it looks. The key to getting the mix right is combining different sorts of prints like florals with stripes or plaid with animal print. Also it’s best to vary the scale of the print (eg bold checks with dainty polka dots) but stick to a similar color pallet.
