Meme-inspired tulle gowns, feather embellished flamingo pink frocks, and even diamond-encrusted swim caps — just another super casual day during Haute Couture. While the highly glamorous runways proved to be as strikingly gorgeous and entertaining as expected, the scene outside the shows was just as swoonworthy (though in a decidedly more subtle way). In fact, the street style at Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris is your first look at how your favorite editors and influencers are dressing in 2019. Though there were far fewer bejeweled dresses and no swim caps in sight, there was a slew of really well-dressed women.
Thanks to unexpectedly cold weather (including a generous dusting of snow) there were plenty of beautiful coats and covetable boots this season, as well as luxe layering pieces like leather scarves, bright puffers, and even a few bucket hats. Suffice it to say, street style was already highlighting some of 2019's biggest trends. And, if the 20 ensembles below are any indication of what's to come during the New York, London, Milan, and Paris F/W 19 shows, then everyone is in store for enough outfit inspiration to last the whole year. Scroll down to discover the best street style from Paris Haute Couture Week and if you're behind, don't miss The Zoe Report's recap of the best runway moments too.
Add a pop to a cream-colored coat and sweater pairing with architectural earrings and a red lip.
Accessorize a bold plaid coat and wide-leg trousers with a pair of colored lenses and a mini bag worn across the body. It'll feel professional, polished, and playful.
Instead of wearing head-to-toe black consider swapping in a neutral camel or chocolate hue to add some depth.
If you're feeling adventurous, style a pair of colorful overalls with a hoodie and lace-up boots for a carefree weekend ensemble.
What's not to love? A lilac coat, leather scarf, white cat-eye sunglasses, and metallic earrings makes for a retro-inspired, yet still modern look.
Earth tones are a dominant trend this season, so get started early and recreate an outfit inspired by this look (including the pop of blue at the bottom!).
If your outfit incoporates structured separates like a blazer and slacks, rotate in a few softer pieces like a beret and drop earring to balance things out.
Keep a brightly-colored solid dress in your closet at all times; it's the easiest way to feel put together without having to do much.
Metallic and snake print should be your next style challenge — so chic.
Swap out your basic black boots for a pair with an artisanal touch, like these floral-embroidered beauties.
As inspiring as this outfit may be, the ingredients are easy to imitate. An aviator jacket + cardigan + printed pants = voila!
Monochrome dressing is always a winning choice, so grab a puffer in a bright hue and match them to some slacks.
Sometimes the slightest details can elevate an entire look, like this fringe-embellished overcoat.
Further proof it's time to embrace the bucket hat trend. If you're feeling bold, try one in a bright color.
If anyone were to pull off a prim tweed blazer and gold metallic pants it's Caroline de Maigret.
If your top and trousers combination is feeling overplayed, consider a structured jumpsuit in its place. One less piece to put on!
There's no bad outfit a super bright, cheerful coat can't fix!
Add some street appeal to a midi dress with a pair of cute socks and chunky sneakers.
Give the western trend a go with a fringe jacket styled with a plush beanie, blue jeans, and sleek black booties.
The belt bag trend lives on! Wear yours with a printed dress and shin-high boots to the office next week.
