Street Style - Paris Fashion Week Fall 2014

Street Style
Paris Fashion Week
Fall/Winter 2014

The whirlwind that was fashion week is sadly behind us, but we take from it many incredibly style memories that will inspire our closets for months to come.
This is the final segment in my Fashion Week Street Style coverage where we head to the City of Lights and all things beautiful, Paris.  Throughout the last 4 weeks, we've seen the socialites, models, stylists and editors, but in my opinion (and I'm not being biased here), the bloggers honestly have the best style. Please click on the images for a larger view.

Cerise Breeze
Whereas pastel pink was all the rage in the other fashion capitals, Paris gave us a new saturated spin on the colour trend in a luscious cerise pink. Suit it, skirt it, shirt it or bag it, this shade is bound to make a striking statement in any way. It's one of my all-time favourite hues.


Checking In
It seems we have not seen the last of the checked print trend this season. Here we have some stellar coats, pants and skirts to end the plaid craze on a high note.

Leopard Loving
Leopard prints have become truly timeless in the past few years. Buy yourself one modish overcoat and you will be set for seasons to come. Even just a leo-printed bag or snazzy pair of ankle boots will add volumes of style to your outfit. I love how the Parisians have selected to pair it with red.

In Distress
Distressed Denim made many chic appearances during PFW, taking the lead from where skinnies and wide-legs left off. These nifty ripped pieces have been styled with oversized coats, chunky knits, trenches and heels.


La Bohéme
French Bohemia is beautifully narrated through a set of ethnic inspired looks in a luxuriant contrast of plush fabrics, engaging textures and baroque prints.


Scarlett Fever
The City of Love was painted red by a radiant cliqué of jumpers and jackets that require no elaborate styling.
A colour this loud certainly speaks for itself.

La Belle Vie
A feminine mix of feathers and midi skirts signify the glamour of Paris Fashion Week, with beautiful looks that can be taken from the sidewalk to nearest high society soiree in 0-5 seconds. 


Winter Whites
I was not there, so I don't know...but the weather must have been pretty great in Paris, as these winter whites honestly don't look very wintery. But even in a chilly 12 °C, all white is always impeccably elegant. Wear it chalky head to heel or break it up with snazzy bright shoes and accessories.


Print Palette
These graphic graffiti prints from Céline, along with vibrant stripes and florals brought an interesting splash of colour and spice to the dull grey-skyed city.


Leatherettes
There are so many ways to leather and not look like you belong in a hard rock band. These ladies have lent a ladylike touch to traditional black leather, with flaired skirts and slick leggings worn with metallic blazers. Append a leather biker jacket and grungy boots to your floral maxi dress for a boho rock effect or get pastelized with a pink leather quilted coat.


Suit Yourself
The suit trend we saw in Milan has journeyed with grace to the streets of Paris, seen with cropped tops, trousers and jackets and teamed with either sneakers or heels.


Parisian Chic
Parisian sophistication is conveyed by relaxed-fit silhouettes, refined layering and once-clichéd breton stripes in this effortlessly chic set of outfits.

Colour Pops
Using black as a foundation, these savvy fashionistas added a bold dash of pigment to their looks, rendering a modern and impactful slant on the formally outworn colour-block trend.
