This Cool Color Trend Is Taking Over Fashion Month

If color trends were like the beloved offspring in the grand family of fashion, then the attendees of Milan Fashion Week have a very obvious favorite child.

After days of monitoring the stylish behaviors of Milan's impeccably dressed show-goers, we're declaring green the official color of the season and there's nothing Grinch-like about it. We’ve spo...
