Paris Couture Week Fall 2016 Street Style

The Paris Couture Fashion Week usually has two shows going on: while on the one hand we have the runway shows, the glamour and eclecticism of which is always much anticipated throughout the year, on the other we have all of those fashion enthusiasts that, over the span of these five days, overwhelm the streets with their energetic street style and innovative attitude. As it usually happens, this Paris Couture Week fall 2016 street style gave us an idea about how variegated and multi-faceted the fashion industry is perceived among aficionados, and of course sparked our imagination with all of its different influences and personalities.

We took the time to explore what was going on down the streets of Paris, looking for the looks that were right in step with the vibrant spirit of this eclectic summer. Here is what we found.

A Summer of Coats

Why focus on the present, when you can already channel some of the upcoming pre-fall’s must-haves? Surely it might not be the case for those who currently live in South Europe or are sun-soaking in Florida, but during this Paris Couture Week the weather wasn’t always sunny and summer-y.

That led many girls to put their best coats and leather jackets on, all decorated with bright colors and quirky details. While single-breasted and car coats were the favorites, leather and denim jackets stood out with creative patches and brooches.

Cascades of Sequins and Beaded Embroideries

The shinier, the better: we knew this would be the most recurring mantra as soon as the springs/summer 2016 rtw runway shows were over, but we surely did not know to what extent. Whether you like more delicate pearl embroideries on a cute white dress, or you feel like dancing the night away in a full sequined frock, it’s up to you. Just let it shine!

Cut it Out

Geometry has more to do with fashion than we will probably ever imagine. Besides coats and sequins, the Paris Couture Fashion Week fall 2016 street style got revamped either with strategic cut-outs at the waist, or geometrically sharp necklines, the cuts of which varied from the simplest to more intricate and extravagant designs.

Often combined with billowy culottes, the latter are surely more couture-esque than the first ones, although significantly less glam-rock.

Chunky Town

Omnipresent at Fendi, colored chunky-heeled ankle boots were at the core of most of the analyzed outfits too, denoting the strong Seventies-inspired tendency the past seasonal collections got us used to. Often lightened up with a delicate clutch, we are surely going to see more and more of them as the autumnal months come by.

Prints Are in the Air

One of the things that astounded us most while browsing through the SS 2016 fashion trends, was the incredible amount of prints the designers chose to dip their staples into. Stripes, botanical patterns, animal designs and ethnic prints, the streets welcomed this trend reinventing it in always different ways, often mixing all of the patterns at once.

Curiously, while those who opted for a flower-power dress paired it with a denim jacket, those who sported different kinda of prints all together mostly chose a more conceptual, at times even slightly couture-esque outfit.

Ruffles and Waves

With jabot collars and ruffled shirts and skirts being definitely a must, it was impossible not to opt for a similar shabby-chic hairstyle look. Beachy locks on both short and long hair, often complemented with messy bangs, were in fact the most recurring ‘dos along with the contrasting uber-chic tight bun, the maintenance of which is undeniably fresh when it comes to summer.
