You're not technically in a style rut, but lately, it's been hard to think outside of the box (and by box, we mean a skinny-jeans-and-oversized-sweater-shaped confinement). That silhouette is the sartorial equivalent of your security blanket: It's easy to put together, flattering, and comfortable to boot. But, in terms of the fireworks department, the combination sort of fizzles. And, that's because it cuts such an expected figure.
Playing around with shape can definitely be intimidating, but once you see how glorious the results can be, spending some time pulling apart your closet becomes a worthwhile pursuit. Our shape-shifting inspiration? The outfits on all the attendees we saw during Milan Fashion Week. We've rounded up over 90 looks from the Italian fashion capital that’ll give you ideas about how you can start playing with your own proportions. And, that box? You already forgot about it, didn't you?For all things Fashion Week around the world — including street style snaps, designer news, and the trends you'd actually wear — head over to Refinery29's Fashion Month hub.
