During Paris Fashion Week, many of the looks were innovative yet searched back into past styles. Compared with other runways, more neutrals were seen in Paris; however, it seems like you don’t have to leave all of your bright colours behind. From colour to classic design to luxurious texture find out all about French finesse: how to keep up with Parisian style.

Textures: wool, fur, and leather

The guests of the Fall/Winter 2019/2020 Paris Fashion Week shows displayed their street style wrapped up for a colder Parisian spring. Wool jackets, luxurious fur (or faux fur hopefully) coats, and trendy leather jackets were seen in abundance. The colour palette was mostly neutral earth tones—with lots of caramel and brown.

Take a look at some of the street style fashions.

Tailoring—from neutrals to brights

Just like all fashion shows around the world, tailoring is still on trend. From neutral suits in beiges, browns, and blacks to bright colours in yellows and pinks and beyond. The styles and cuts vary too, harking back to most of the recent past decades. The suits are paired with classic heels or trainers, platform shoes, or boots. The looks vary from oversized suits to tight fitting, closely tailored suits and anything in between.

Chanel meets Jackie O dresses

Some guests showed up in the classic Chanel 1960s pattern favoured by former First Lady Jackie O—some of these looks are Chanel and others inspired by. Either way, this classic shape of mini-dress seems never to go out of style. The colour range is pastel hues to green to black.

Capes—long and short alike

Capes of all sorts were seen on the runways in Paris this season. Mostly the capes were in dark or neutral tones, but sometimes they shone brightly in oranges, pinks, greens, blues, and even florals. Pair with trousers, shorts, or your ball gown!

The classic beret

If you thought berets were too French cliché think again. They are very much still in fashion and going strong. These berets were seen on the runways and in the streets—classic felt berets in colours or grey and black to leather berets to political statements. Would you sport a beret?
