Get the Look: Paris Fashion Week Street Style at Balenciaga and Céline
Gimlet-eyed Kristin Yamada is busy snapping street-style starlets during Fashion Week. Here are her photos to inspire you for next season (or this one) and some wardrobe picks to help you get the look.
If it hasn’t been blatantly apparent by now, I must admit Laura Comolli (Purses and I) is one of my favorite style babes. She is always so incredibly lovely. The white lace dress is another key item within the romantic trend. It has become the casual counterpart to the dressier ruffle blouse. Laura’s gorgeous leather coat with raw edges is a great contemporary choice for pairing. A glittered clutch and embellished footwear add a dusting of glitz and glam. Bravissima, Laura!
Antwerp-based blogger Annabel Pesant (Annabel Pesant) is hitting a ton of Fashion Week trends today. Her super easy and laid-back look is one we all pull together in a snap! I can’t underline how massive the satin bomber is this season. It is an absolute must, especially with back detailing. Shirting and frayed-edge denim are both staples in the trend uniform at this point as well. Snakeskin is a mega theme in footwear. It spans silhouettes, but has been most popular in boots and natural color. With a renewed interest in the classics, a tailored shoulder bag completes this get-me-now look. Nicely done, Annabel!
This look from Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad) is graphic and sporty, yet still elevated and polished. Bold stripes and primary color infuse energy. This jacket has been everywhere in Paris this week. Chiara’s crop top and soft choker mix together, creating a youthful-feeling edge, while her pointed-toe stilettos dress up casual jeans. With a pair of dark sunnies, Chiara is camera ready!
Historical romance is a trending theme on the streets of Paris. The ruffle blouse is a key, and extremely popular, piece of this style equation. The extra long bib detail, seen here on Camille Charrière (Camille Over the Rainbow), is a standout. I also love the proportion play of Camille’s jacket, with crop length and voluminous sleeves. Jeans and mixed material loafers keep Camille modern and cool. Thanks, Camille!
