The style cognoscenti are certainly celebrating the advent of Milan Fashion Week with much fanfare as they take to the streets in the most vivid of shades. Expect nothing less than rich saturated hues and top-to-toe colour coordination of the savoir-faire variety.

If you're thinking our local walkways could use some stylish enlivening, how about picking up a lush velvet dress in jewel tones of aubergine or teal? It'll offset our slate-and-glass environs to great effect. Though if you plan to go all out, Anna Della Russo's floral and sequined ruffled-tier trompe-l'œil Gucci gown is the winner. After all, decorating the streets with fashion beats those festive pennants any day.
