The Best Paris Fashion Week Street Style

As it happens...

The fourth and final city is busy prepping to showcase its autumn/winter '17 collections to the fashion elite. Outside of the shows, the fash pack are crowding to be photographed in their finest attire. That's right, it's Paris Fashion Week.

And boy, what an event it's set to be. Paris hosts the final installment of catwalk shows and so fashion influencers must take the opportunity to debut their best clobber in one final attempt to grace the magazine pages.

And the Parisians have yet to disappoint. Renowned for their inimitable aesthetic and ability to achieve the epitome of 'chic' with ease, the PFW fash pack are always one to watch.

And this season, the street style set are championing the athleisure trend (surprise), reinterpreting the Canadian tux (yes, seriously) and throwing the old school rule book out the window...

These are the style lessons you need to learn this season:

Prep For The Weather In A Puffer

The puffer jacket made an unanticipated return this autumn/winter and it seems the fash pack are yet to hang it back up. With April showers set to pour in the coming months, make sure to invest in one (or two).

The nineties puffer is not going anywhere this spring

We advise buying the cult coat in sorbet hues for extra sartorial points.

Think Pink (Again)

Yes, it's the trend that keeps on giving. We've been donning candy floss pink for as long as we can remember and this season, it's back in all its glory.

The street style set were in head-to-toe pink by day six

Toughen up the look with a PVC biker and sunnies or opt for girly ruffles and accompanying pastel hues. Either way, it's a sartorial winner.

Bring Back The Mango Coat

We have further proof that the famous Mango checked coat has the power to transcend seasons. The ankle-skimming number has been spotted on bloggers far and wide, first hidding the headlines a few months ago.

The Mango coat is still highly sought after

And even now the coat continues to rule the streets as the likes of Camille Charrière have been seen donning the dreamy accessory in Paris. So make sure to dig yours out and team it up with a slogan-emblazoned tee and deconstructed blue jeans. If you didn't manage to bag the cult coat when it dropped, take a look at Mango's most recent checked wonders for a fashionable alternative.

Don Underwear As Outerwear

Yes, the trend is well and truly back. Layer sorbet hued lacy bralets over soft white tees or simply don a sheer corset this season. Finish with a pinstriped oversized coat for added sartorial points.

We're in love with the daring underwear-as-outerwear look

If the trend fills you with fear, play on the underwear aspect with a corset belt instead. Simply team it with a blouse bearing sleeves of puffed-up proportions.

Reinvent The Canadian Tux

Double denim is notoriously the biggest fashion faux pas in all the land. But this season, the fash pack are reinventing the Canadian tux. And it's never looked so chic.

The chambray co-ord is big news this season

Invest in chambray co-ords and finish with a pop of colour when accessorising. We're talking candyfloss pinks and the 'It' colour of the season in abundance (FYI, it's orange).

Supersize Your Sporty Sleeves

Yes, we've already bought a Champion jumper in every hue imaginable. But this season, make sure that you invest in a sweatshirt two sizes up.

Wear your Champion two sizes up

Yep, the street style set are donning hip-skimming sleeves again and we cannot get enough. Team them up with box-fresh trainers, silky track pants and a beret. Yes, it's back. Haven't you heard?

Mismatch Everything

Yes, throw out the old school fashion rule book this season. Why? Because anything goes. We're teaming quilted puffers up with silky slip dresses, donning mismatched shoes and accessorising with completely different earrings.

Mismatch your garms this season for extra style points

Yep, we're no longer painstakingly cololur co-ordinating our garms or making sure our handbag brings out the yellow in our dress. Because, at the end of the day, who cares?
