Milan is one of those places where you need to bring your style A-game. Structured pieces with sporty touches in not-necesarily-black neutrals will take you far. Get playful with more avant-garde accessories and you can rest assured that a run-in with Anna Dello Russo won't solicit any side-eye.
- If you're like me, you save rocking red lipstick for special occasions; a trip to Milan is one of them.
- Get extra mileage out of your clothes by packing separates in matching neutrals. They're great worn together or mixed and matched with other pieces.
- Cross-body bags are the way to go when you're traveling internationally and need to access your wallet often. This minimal white one is to die for.
