Designers in Paris tend to march to their own very distinct beat, and the shows there always deliver a beautifully diverse array of trends. There were, however, certain key looks, items and ideas that emerged over the course of all four of this season’s fashion weeks and reached their apex in the French capital.

Among our Top 10: A mood of romantic, gothic Victorian; a nostalgic ’70s feeling; and a clean-edged retro-future idea that recalls the ’60s but is brought up to date with modern fabrications. Fur and layered texture continue in importance and a tailored coat, sleek bag and fitted boot will all be must-haves come fall. High-shine leather and precious dimensional embellishments in unexpected forms keep the look sleek, modern and feminine. Enjoy!

Denni Elias blog (Chicmuse) is aptly named, as she consistently inspires me to expand my style horizons. There’s a little superhero vibe to her look today that I am totally digging. There’s so much fun texture and pop prints, but it still feels refined in a youthful way. Those d’Orsay stilettos, however, are the scene-stealer for me. But, then again, I’m a shoe girl and can’t say no to a cool design.

Everyone knows I have a style crush on Linda Tol. She is just so creative and exciting to watch. You never know what to expect from her. Today’s powder-blue suit is a far cry from the leisure suits of yore. This suit is crisp, modern and ever so slightly sporty. A fun bag adds a pop of color and pattern. And no purse is complete without a furry charm this season!

We all know how much I love Margaret Zhang (Shine by Three) and today was no exception. Margaret knows how to layer like a boss. I don’t know how she manages to look so effortlessly cool all the time, but I’m glad she does. It makes my job easy! Today’s leather look is pure New York. Her striped top adds a bit of color, which was sorely needed on this grey, slushy day.

I’ve said it before, Kristina Bazan (KAYTURE) is such a chameleon! She can go from glamazon to grunge goddess in the blink of an eye. I love a good wrap and Kristina’s textural grey shawl is going on my shopping list immediately. Plaid pants and metallic details add some punky edge to her ’90s revival style.

Tamara (Glam and Glitter) has got the all-American Hilfiger color palette down pat. Her bright blues and reds stood out on this grey day. Her pop jumper and full skirt are a trendy pairing and the sleek moto jacket works perfectly. Tamara is great at making classic feminine silhouettes feel modern and fun.

There’s a lot going on with Keyshla’s outfit, but sometimes more is more! Denim is still going strong this Fashion Week, and I love the layered look of this distressed pair. Keyshla’s metallic tunic is a statement piece, but she’s toned it down with casual styling. Leopard sneaker boots are cozy and cool.

Linda Tol is a style superstar. She’s fearless, creative and cutting-edge. I love how Linda plays with proportion in this look. While her lines are sleek and stark, her palette is soft. Edgy black leather accessories add some classic Linda quirkiness. I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of this Dutch darling as Fashion Week goes on!

Street Style: Ece at Dion Lee

Oh Ece, how I love your style! Of course, fashion is this stylist’s bread and butter, so it’s no surprise that she always looks incredible. Ece’s color palette is Pantone-perfect. Her high-waisted, wide-leg trousers are all I want to wear right now, especially with a cashmere turtleneck and sleek blazer. This is how you do updated ’70s chic.
