Whenever I visit a foreign city there is this thing I have to closely watch and dissect street fashion, women mostly. And of course I take pictures of them, which is not easy peasy, not to mention that most of the times I do this I drive my travelling companions up the wall. But the street style is the mirror of a society, socially, economically, aesthetically and I enjoy feeling the beat of the city. And it is quite fun too!
A financially potent and fashion hub metropolis like Milan offers a wide display of chic women with elegant wardrobes and cool attitudes. If you are lucky enough or hang around in the right places, you might feel like attending a fashion show en plain air. And the first thing you notice about a Milanese woman (aware of her looks and her full identity, that is over 40 or even 60, in most cases) is not so much the dressing as it is her bearing: confident, present and practical, slightly lofty, nicely doubled by her classic, chic, and posh outfits. And this obvious self-confidence is the same whether wearing some Valentino pumps or a pair of ordinary flats.
