And where to buy them right now
By now, you know that if you’re looking for that one designer item that’s worth investing in, you shouldn’t look to the catwalk, but to the street (see the 5 It bags everyone was wearing in Milan, the London street style hits and the boots all the influencers were wearing in New York).
Now it’s Paris Fashion Week, so we took to the cobbles of the French capital to see what les filles Parisiennes were wearing, in the hope it’ll make us look chic overnight. Once you’re all clued up, jump over to our Black Friday clothing deals and Black Friday designer deals galleries for more inspiration – and maybe a couple of new purchases.
The colourful statement coat
Whether it was a pink biker jacket, a yellow duster or acid green trench, there were so many colourful coats adding a pop of colour to the grey streets of Paris. They were worn with simple jeans and trainers, or with variations of the same hues for bolder looks. My favourite was this look below, which you can recreate with the wool-felt Valentino coat.
The Chanel handbag
Well, this is Paris after all, it’s a pre-requisite! Now if you’re into your classics, you’ll know the Chanel 2.55 is one of the best investments you can make, and while there were plenty of those on the Parisian streets during fashion week, there were also some more current Autumn/Winter styles, like this silver flap bag, which you can shop below.

The Céline pumps
In Paris, you’re on Céline’s home turf, so it would be a crime not to pay homage to the brand. As stunning as stilettos look in those street style snaps (especially those Balenciaga boots), we know they’re not exactly ideal for walking on cobbles. Which is why these classic heeled ballerina pumps are your PFW wardrobe saviour.
