It is no secret that we are always absolutely in love with all of the inspiring street style looks the various Fashion Weeks overwhelm us with, whether it is couture or ready-to-wear season. For this latest Paris Couture Week spring 2017, we found ourselves particularly smitten by the abounding amount of diverse looks the fashionistas were able to effortlessly embrace, from the more soigné to casual-chic ones. Here we are with our favorites!
Strong Parisian Street Style Looks
Although being extremely variegated and diverse, all of the Paris Couture Week spring 2017 street style looks featured an inevitable common denominator – the romantic vibes the city of Paris always exudes. Total black outfits, bon-ton skirts, culottes pants and beanies enhanced our beloved fashionistas’ silhouettes with a timeless allure that one cannot help but fall in love with instantly.
This Couture Week also treated us to Parisian extra factors realized through the juxtaposition of more conventionally feminine items with more contemporary, urban-chic ensembles, such as furry coats, oversized shirts with flared sleeves and animal printed trousers.
Paris Anti-Fashion Couture Week, Spring 2017 Edition
Being the home of Vetements, anti-fashion-inspired looks, with all their quirky patterns and Gothic typos, inevitably were at the core of many street style outfits spotted in Paris. However, also being home to one of the industry’s most polished kind of fashion styles, even the Paris Couture Week’s most high-end looks were infused with maverick and unconventional aesthetics.
Shredded denim, ultra-oversized palazzo pants, hoodies and bomber jackets proved not only that one can be stylish even when wearing the coziest garments ever, but also that the anti-fashion movement is not going to die any time soon.
When It Comes to Paris Couture Week, Always Expect the Unexpected
Speaking of anti-fashion patterns combined with haute couture-esque motifs, why limit yourself to a committed coherent style, when you can surprise people with out-of-the-ordinary single elements?
While looking at the many street style pictures from this Couture Week, you will find yourself absolutely inspired by how harmoniously cool suits jackets can go hand in hand, for example, with unconventional hot pink ankle boots. Or how cool a trumpet skirt can look when paired with a casual t-shirt with Nineties-inspired patterns.
More than ever before, this Paris Couture Week encouraged us to always dare with fashion, without being afraid to set our own rules.
A Feminist Couture Week
As soon as Maria Grazie Chiuri debuted her “We Should All Be Feminist” T-shirt for Dior’s spring 2017 collection, we instantly knew we were about to experience one of Dior’s biggest successes. This Couture Week confirmed our impressions, as both Chiuri’s iconic tees and overall feminist apparel options were one of the Paris Couture Week spring 2017 street style’s absolute must-haves.
We predict the upcoming Fashion Weeks will follow a similar feminist path, both in terms of street style, and the actual shows (“empowerment” was, predictably, this Couture Week’s most powerful and revisited leitmotif).
