Sharing my minimal chic look from Milan Fashion Week. And some heartfelt advice to young fashion bloggers attending fashion week.

Minimal chic look at Milan Fashion Week (Fashion Blogger Outfit)

Sharing my minimal chic look from Milan Fashion Week and some heartfelt advice to young fashion bloggers. It is common belief that you can spot a fashion blogger at Milan Fashion Week judging by her edgy outfit. I’m the living proof that a fashion blogger attending fashion week due to her passion for fashion doesn’t need to stand out for her eccentricity. In this post I shared my first outfit for MFW, a colourful outfit in hues of red. And here you can check out the rocker-boho look donned by my fashion blogger friend Iolanda.

Then where does this common belief come from? Well, there are girls that dress up like cartoon characters just for the sake of  being showered with street-style photographers’ flashes. But what they don’t know is that photographers and magazines will browse through all the eye-catching outfits and publish only the truly stylish ones. That’s the problem with pretending to be someone you are not. You can get ten seconds of attention which will not bring you anywhere.

My heartfelt advice to young fashion bloggers attending fashion week

This is not a critique to girls who enjoy rocking edgy outfits. I love well styled edgy outfits. It’s some humble advice from a seasoned fashion blogger to young fashion bloggers attending fashion week. Don’t trust all the fuss you see on tv! Don’t try to mimic famous people who can get away with whichever stunt they come up with. Be true to your own sense of style. And focus on what fashion week is about, that is fashion, and meeting nice blogger buddies. You will come away with meaningful memories and a happy heart!

    I totally agree with you.. even here in Toronto there are so many girls who wear literally the most ridiculous outfits just to stand out. It’s crazy! I believe it’s much more important to wear what you love and stay true to your style.

  37. Thomas Falkenstedt - March 17, 2017

    Although I love showing up at FW wearing color and edgy outfits, I don’t do it to look like a cartoon character like you just described and I think these people are ridiculous, even if they’re hilarious to look at. During LFW the most photographed ones were two guys who showed up in a pink and a purple bath robe wearing red sneakers to match their “outfit”. That’s not fashion nor style. That’s attention seeking and I think we’ll never get rid of that nuisance, but like you said, the magazines don’t post these “clown” outfits, but pick out the stylish ones. 🙂 And you’re one of those truly stylish ones!

  38. Jen - March 17, 2017

    Hahaha cartoon characters! That’s so funny and it sums up fashion week, lol. Yes, you are right that the ones that make it into magazines are the ones with true style and something that really speaks to the audience. I love your coat so much!

  41. Stacy - January 16, 2018

    Valerie, I love your look. Trends will come and go, but the pieces in this outfit will stay and can always be modified with colorful accessories like scarves, necklaces, and glasses.
