With the near departure of winter and the impending arrival of spring, one can hardly be blamed for wanting to think ahead to the upcoming season and the wardrobe changes that come along with it.

However, is it entirely foolish to think as far ahead as next winter? No, absolutely not! If our most beloved design houses and fashion boutiques prepare a full year in advance, there is no reason why we shouldn’t either. The recent wrap of Milan Fashion Week is proof of this. While the majority of us continue to deal with the brutal winds of winter, designers the world over have been hard at work preparing their offerings for the next fall/winter season.

For the sartorially inclined, it’s not enough to react to current trends, it’s our duty to keep abreast of what is fashionable a full season or two ahead. One such trend that proved to be consistent on the runways of Milan is statement outerwear.

The show offered by the esteemed house, Dolce & Gabbana, was brimming with floral-printed tuxedo jackets, oversized shirts depicting religious images, and fur-collared topcoats. Sheer brilliance was displayed in their attempt to liven up monochromatic suits of black and white with beaming floral-printed jackets. My verdict? A welcome scene in a season normally inundated with dull-looking outerwear pieces. What’s yours?
