Paris fashion week coverage 2015

The little denim pinafore: in Paris

Somewhere between overalls and a dress, somewhere between tomboy and lolita, is this piece of clothing: the little denim pinafore. Worn with a crop-top underneath and a pair of boots below, it was given a cool look in Paris by this off duty model.

The modern flapper girl: Elvira Abasova

What might a flapper girl look like today? Like Elvira Abasova, perhaps, in this outfit she wore to Couture week. The dress has a twenties-style charm with a boxy cut, short length and feather trim. And then there’s the long bob. But the modern flapper girl doesn’t go for heels or even dainty flats, oh no. She’s a sneakers girl all the way. Impressively, the…

How to rock the cool half-tuck

It doesn’t take much to rock your shirt in a cool half-tuck like a pro. Or like an off duty model, as the case here may be. Just leave one side hanging, a few buttons undone, and do it all with a dash of attitude.

Feminine chic on the street in Paris

A midi skirt and loose-fit camisole might sound a little dowdy, but not when you know how to pull the combination off. Draw in the waist for maximum femininity, and add a pair of peep-toe booties for edge. This street style look from Paris had it nailed.

Elena Perminova and the romantic maxi

With the ’70s fashion revival came a renewed love of the maxidress-as-eveningwear. A semi-sheer sweeping gown in luxe fabric and a romantic colour is both effortless and yet statement-making. This one was worn by the ever-stylish Elena Perminova in Paris.

A print-clashing lesson

It’s not just the clash of one bold floral against another on Ella Catliff’s dress that makes her outfit stand out, but the daring addition of even more prints. Her floral-emblazoned clutch and patterned frames give the outfit even more wow-factor. A lesson in print clashing if ever there was one. For more street style follow that link.

Making a statement with simple stripes

An off-duty model can always teach a style lesson or two when it comes to making a statement out of something as simple as a striped tee. In this case, a pair of short denim shorts and chic pair of sunglasses are the foundation, but the bright yellow bag is what really makes the outfit pop.

Frida Gustavsson & the silk pyjama

After gracing on of the couture week runways, Swedish beauty Frida Gustavsson kept it cool and simple in jeans and flats. The thing to elevate the outfit to something photo-worthy? A silk pyjama jacket and messy topknot.

Off-duty plaid in Paris

There was a time when tartan prints and sheer fabrics never crossed paths, but that time is long gone. Now, plaids can find their way onto anything. The print and oversized cut lend this shirt-dress a grunge feel, especially when worn with heavy black flats.

A simple, cool menswear look you can easily recreate

Some guys fear that dressing stylishly means having to go over the top. Menswear editor and permanent fixture of the fashion week scene, Simone Marchetti, knows full well that’s not the case. This street style look photographed in Paris proves all: simple and clean, all you need to replicate it is a cool printed tee and a sharp black suit.

Crystal Renn: all black with plenty of attitude

Sometimes there’s more to an outfit than just the clothes that comprise it. Crystal Renn rocks an all-black look in a cool way, by showing a peep of midriff and adding some unique accessories like round glasses and a spike ear cuff. But the not-as-easy-to-replicate element is her attitude, which makes the whole look extra street style worthy.

Barbara Martelo & the Chanel mini

Barbara Martelo is one of those street style mainstays that never deviates too far from her signature style. And why would she? It compliments here perfectly. On her way to the Chanel couture show in Paris, she was snapped wearing this teeny tiny boucle tweed mini skirt and pair of strappy heels, pared back by way of a simple black tee.

If you’ve got it, flaunt it: model off duty

If you’ve got it, flaunt it, so the saying goes – and every good off duty model knows it. The flirty lingerie personality comes out in force with a black lace bralet peeping out from underneath a low-cut singlet, while long legs in short shorts are kept cool and demure in sneakers instead of heels.
