Believe it or not, we’ve reached the bittersweet ending of fashion month. While I truly enjoy stalking social media and my inbox for updates on New York, London, and Milan Fashion Week, Paris just always is on a completely different level. Several new trends emerge that take over my Instagram feed and eventually my closet for several months if not years. I also tend to walk away with dozens of outfits that I can’t wait to copy.
This year, there’s a lot to take in so put on your seatbelts. Our favorite French designers have been more daring than we’ve ever seen before. Their designs breathed life into the fashion space with high energy and excitement present at every show—ushering in shocking sheer moments, shorter-than-ever shorts, bright colors, and unique accessory choices. Sophisticated elegance was the common theme that tied the shows together, but instead of the stuffy feeling that we often associate with a higher level of fashion, think excitement, effortlessness, and versatility. You need to know the seven trends below.
