The 7 Street Style Trends That Were All Over Paris Fashion Week

As fashion month draws to a close, it's Paris's turn to get the street style treatment, and as per usual, the City of Lights did not disappoint. Offering up some of the most beautiful backdrops and historic show settings, Paris Fashion Week always delivers lust-worthy style inspo that will set us up for the season ahead. This season was no different. 

So what themes particularly caught our eye this March? Well, let's just say that colour lovers won't be short on ideas this season, with vibrant shades of green and neon yellow splashed across a plethora of showgoers' outfits. There was also a generous dose of print-clashing and dramatic fringing, both outfit details that will instantly elevate your spring wardrobe. 

If you have more of a minimalist's predisposition, worry not, because there was no shortage of immaculate tailoring and head-to-toe neutrals. However, we particularly loved the clean-lined maxi skirts and '90s-inspired leather coats that were in abundance on the streets of Paris—both ideal staples for the tricky transition between winter and spring. Ready? Scroll down to see and shop our full edit of Paris Fashion Week street style trends. 

1. Perfect Print-Clashing

Whether you go stripes and florals or checks and swirls, this season, the Paris Fashion Week crowd embraced the clash. 

I have these and can confirm they're even better IRL

2. Wild West Accessories

They're not the most in-your-face trend, but once you start to notice the Wild West–inspired accessories, you'll see them everywhere. Think Western boots, neckerchiefs, cow print and cowboy hats.

3. Frou Frou Fringing

There was no shortage of dramatic fringing on the streets of Paris this season, with tassels adorning everything from dresses to jackets. I'll be re-creating the look with Chloé's homespun macramé sweater. 

4. 50 Shades of Neon

Neon shades have been given a high-fashion makeover this year, with countless showgoers incorporating highlighter hues into their outfits, as seen here on Grece Ghanem.

5. Ankle-Skimming Skirts

Hemlines have been moving south this spring, with ankle-grazing lengths taking over from the popular midi silhouette. At the top of our wish list? Miu Miu's chic front-slit maxi skirt. 

6. Tough Leather Coats

Nope, leather isn't just for winter. We lost count of the number of fab leather coats and jackets that took to the streets of Paris this season. Just throw over jeans and a T-shirt.

7. Garden Greens

It won't be a surprise to anyone to see that green has made its way onto our shortlist, with nature-inspired shades inspiring countless industry insiders' outfits at fashion week. We particularly loved this forest-green suit, which was styled with a colour-clashing purple shirt.
