The Paris Fashion Week Trends You Can Steal ASAP

Of all the fashion weeks, editors will often claim that it's Paris where the season's truest trends are really mapped out. Maybe it's down to the intense, four week-long process of stone-setting that happens as the fashion crowds hop from one capital to another, but there's no denying that what the cerebral, romantic creatives of the City of Light produce is always enormously inspiring. Especially at this very moment, when disruption is the buzzword du jour—seasons are being turned on their heads with see-now, buy-now becoming more than a possibility; punk spirit is in the air and new designers are proposing new ideals at old houses (see Demna Gvasalia's debut at Balenciaga). 

So that means the style landscape has received quite a shaking up—and you can translate that into your wardrobe sooner than you may think. Scroll down to see the key styling lessons we've learnt and the buys to nail A/W 16 six months early…
