Proof Paris Street Style Is The Best Outfit Inspiration You’ll See All Year
Welcome to Paris Fashion Week, where the runways are big (Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton), but the street style might be even bigger. That's because as the last stop in the fashion month cycle, Paris is where you can expect to see the major trendsetters from every city finally come together to walk the Marais and grab a glass of wine or two between shows. It may be a cliché, but "we'll always have Paris," is the mantra of the fashion industry at large. And the best street style from Paris Fashion Week is like the city itself: sophisticated, but with a bit of mystery. What from far away may seem like a simple ensemble, is dotted with intrigue up close thanks to impeccable tailoring, daring layering, and of course, great accessories.
What also sets Paris apart is that it's the first fashion week that lands fully in fall. With the equinox passing toward the final days of Milan, the first hints of chilly weather have finally arrived, and along with it, fashion that's more tailored — but still plenty colorful. Expect to see the chicest new boots, structured suiting, and cool-weather styling of summer's floatier dresses. And traditionally, fall also marks the move into more subdued jewel-tones, but this year, neon is still everywhere. Clearly, there's no color too bold to wear in the days to come.
Below, find a collection of the best street style shots from Paris Fashion Week, updated daily, so you never miss an outfit. Whether you're in need of some shopping inspiration, or you're just looking to apply some new styling tricks to the pieces you already own, there's no doubt you'll be inspired by the looks on the cobbled streets of Paris. Read on for le créme de le créme.
