It may have rained in Paris recently, but the eternally chic city didn’t let the weather put a damper on its style. In a sea of Chanel, Lanvin, and Saint Laurent, no grey skies or troublesome clouds were going to rain on fashion’s biggest parade. Straight off the runway, here are five of our favourite trends from the fashion week of all fashion weeks.
1 Captivating capes
The trend: Bold capes
Why we love it: Ever since that iconic red carpet look from Lupita Nyong’o at the 2014 Golden Globes, capes have been back on trend. This season, designers are showing the trend in vibrant, statement-making colours.
How to wear it: For a casual outfit, wear your cape with jeans, a tank top and boots.
2 Fluffy finishes
The trend: Faux fur sleeves and trims
Why we love it: A few fluffy details on your coat will help ease you perfectly into the faux fur trend. What’s more, faux fur is lighter and a lot more practical than full-on fur outerwear.
How to wear it: Pair your faux fur pieces with jewel-toned separates.
3 Black (power) leather
The trend: Structured leather coats
Why we love it: These leather beauts are super luxe, effortlessly cool and scream #girlboss.
How to wear it: Keep your leather look sleek by wearing it over an LBD or black trousers.
4 Statement hats
The trend: Abstract millinery
Why we love it: A good hat makes everything better, but an abstract hat always guarantees an interesting conversation.
How to wear it: The bigger the hat, the simpler the garment – let it shine on its own against a minimalist look!
5 Old-fashioned romance
The trend: Soft colours and loose-cut frocks
Why we love it: Romanticism is always at its strongest in spring, but every now and then a designer will push the trend for winter with soft colours in heavier material.
How to wear it: Accessorise your frock with long necklaces and statement bangles. Boho shoes will take your look to the next level with a vintage-inspired vibe.
