Paris was buzzing with fashion’s finest over the last week thanks to the arrival of Haute Couture Fashion Week.
When we weren’t admiring the breath-taking designs on the runways, we were checking out the style on the streets as the biggest bloggers, models and editors arrived at the shows. Here’s our round-up of trends from fashion’s glitziest crowd:
Dot to Dot
Whether big and bold or small and sweet, there’s no print that grabs the attention of a street style photographer quite like polka dot. An eternally chic option, it’s no wonder the fashion crowd are seeing spots.
Pimp Your Bag
Yes, tassels may reign supreme, but colourful pom pom pendants are threatening to take their crown. Instantly adding a playful personality to your bag, you’re sure to stand out from the crowd with this season’s must-have adornment.
Although mini skirts were everywhere to be seen, some street style stars took a more demure approach to the couture shows in ladylike longer-length skirts. Pair yours with statement heels and a loose-fitting shirt for effortless city chic.
Rushing between shows, the FROW regulars only want to be carrying their absolute essentials so a mini version of their favourite designer bag makes perfect sense. Offering just enough room for their mobile phone, credit card and a lipstick for top ups of course, they make the ultimate catwalk companion.
Listen up ladies: the boater hat is back. Bad hair day? No-one needs to know. Simply top off your outfit with an quintessentially British boater hat and pretty heels for an elegant outfit twist.
When an occasion calls for something a little more refined than your favourite skinnies, a pair of wide-leg trousers or culottes offers a sophisticated silhouette. Wonderfully versatile, they’ll take you from work event to evening drinks in style.
