The best street style from Paris Fashion Week

Well, fashion month is almost over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t style get plenty of style inspiration. After London Fashion Week and Milan Fashion Week, it’s now over to Paris from some seriously covetable looks.

Where Milan and London featured more daring and colourful looks, the French capital is all about chic and understatement (bien sûr), and the likes of Anna Vitiello, Bettina Looney, Caroline Daur, Jeanne Damas and Olivia Palermo have so far not disappointed us with their outfits.

Paris street style trends

With the arrival of autumn – and lots of rain – it’s been trench coat central, which by no means means boring. Think faux leather, pleats and a neutral palette ranging from beige to white and khaki.

Oversized is the silhouette of the season, with loosely tailored suits, blazers and jumpsuits (include that Frankie Shop one) taking over the Parisian cobbles.

At Dior we saw a feminine take on proceedings. Naturally there were plenty of tulle skirts and cinched in checked blazers, as well as matching bags and coats.

Over at Saint Laurent, thinks got way more minimalistic, this was the home of the tuxedo after all. Therefore, there were plenty of little black dresses, black coats and suits, either dressed up with naked sandals, or down with biker boots, Parisian style.

Paris street style accessories

In terms of accessories, sandal season is officially over, and the boot reigns king. Chunky hiking boots are de rigueur, preferably paired with a floaty dress, and tan or brown knee-high boots are a must also.

Then of course, there is always room for the statement piece, because it is Fashion Week and you do want to get papped. There have been plenty of Comme des Garcons boots, Balenciaga trainers and Bottega Veneta bags, and that’s without counting the chunky jewellery. Paris is always a good one for people watching.
