9 New Street Style Trends I've Seen All Over Paris This Week

The sun's officially out—and it's accompanied by a bunch of new trends. The fashion set has taken a break from the holiday season to descend upon Paris for Haute Couture Fashion Week, and it doesn't look like they've travelled light. Suitcases full of the latest looks have already been plundered for new goods and fresh combinations over the past couple of days, and it's proving to be a useful boost for our current summer wardrobes. There are many new-season trends we've already become well acquainted with, but there's always scope for something different and this lot are already jumping ahead of what's popular right now in order to inject a little excitement into your hot-weather lineup.

Couture's streets are always more elaborate and decadent than the other fashion weeks, so we've decided to double-down on the looks we'd genuinely be able to imitate or be inspired from IRL. From the two most unusual trending colours the front row is backing (although, there's no sign of beige going anywhere soon) to the little accessory switches that appear to be making all the difference, here's what's going to be in no time at all…

SALMON PINK

Pink has been popular in fashion circles for a long time now, but a specific shade is bubbling up at the moment. When worn in one block, like Elena Perminova here, it can be rather striking.

It also looks cool mixed with other power pastels, as with Tiffany's retro suit and open-collared shirt combination here.

Salmon pink is strangely good with black accessories—not something that can be said for all pretty, light colours.

Do the double and wear a matching salmon skirt suit. You'll be ticking off next season's trends too.

Add to red, white and baby pink for a new take.

It comes in many different iterations and finishes, like this classic woven leather.

The bag is beloved by minimalists the world over.

It's also finding its way into more adventurous closets.

TINTED SUNGLASSES

Why not match your eyewear to the colours of your chosen outfit?

Vintage-style frames complete with tinted lenses are a subtle way to get your personality across.

And they make your world look like a 1970s movie, which is no bad thing.

SQUARE-TOED SHOES

Square-toed sandals, boots and pumps have been coming to the fore, but this week has confirmed them as the shoe style to be wearing.

From Bottega Veneta to Acne Studios, quite a few designers are catching on.

Square-toed mules (like Wandler's super-popular ones) are also proving to be a hit.

BIG BLAZERS

Sorry, biker jackets—blazers are still very much de riguer. And they're literally bigger than ever.

Worn as part of a trouser suit or not, the silhouettes are jumbo.

This can easily be controlled by cinching the waist.

Don't be afraid of jumbo proportions. Just balance out with elegant heels.

Or wear a long-line jacket with a very short skirt, á la Pernille.

DISTINCTLY NOT-SUMMERY PRINTS

The fashion crowd are eschewing the obvious summer prints like gingham and florals in favour of more unexpected patterns.

We've been seeing vintage etchings, Wedgewood-style motifs, wood prints and much more across the pavements of Paris.

That includes wearing traditionally wintry patterns—like checks—on hot days.

Mesh tops are particularly ripe bases for this burgeoning trend.

And let's not leave out camo (see the bucket hat?). That's going to be a bigger trend in autumn. Trust us.

RAYS OF YELLOW

Salmon pink has competition in the form of the yellow spectrum. From golden satin to butter yellow, last summer's favourite colour continues.

Yellow always works well with white accessories.

But don't be afraid to put a little something extra in the mix, like these clashing black sandals.

Maria's unbuttoned shirt styling trick is something we predicted would go mainstream.

NEUTRAL SEPARATES

When the women of couture aren't wearing one of the two power pastels featured above, the mood is still very much about neutral colours (black, beige, cream, white, etc.) worn in smart, pared-back separates.

Adding a little maximialism to a minimalist look can be done easily with a chain belt.

Sneakers instantly help make short hemlines look more casual.

We're still not done with wearing beige tones head-to-toe.

Effortless.

Super-summery accessories always work with these colours.

PEARL JEWELLERY

Ladylike strings of pearls with a boxy jacket? Clever.

Undone hair and fancy earrings is one of my favourite combination.

Vest tops look all the most modern with a pearl necklace in 2019.

You can go down a more vintage route too—literally every pearl style is in right now.
