GET THE LOOK: THE 3 BEST LOOKS OF PARIS FASHION WEEK

Paris Fashion Week is well underway, and we’re excited about the collections we’ve seen so far.  Most runway shows have nailed that effortlessly sexy vibe that the French are known for, whether it’s through tailored separates, oversized knits, or skin-tight leather.  Some of our favorite looks have more to do with proportions than pieces, which actually makes them super-easy to recreate right now!  Here are our top 3 looks from Paris Fashion Week and how to get them RIGHT NOW:

 

1.  Dior

Dior’s show, which felt more Spring than Fall, was full of gorgeous colors, layered outerwear, and new proportions.  Our favorite look consisted of a long yellow vest worn over a plain white dress- so easy, yet totally fresh & exciting.  To get the look now, we’d wear this long white vest from Haute Hippie with a plain yellow tank dress from American Apparel.  Throw on some ankle-strap heels, like these from Forever 21, and you’re done!  Tres Dior.

 

2.  Jay Ahr

This was the first time we’ve paid attention to designer Jay Ahr, and we’ve got to say that we loved his show!  The look that really struck us was this black and white number- the striped skirt, white fur jacket, and chic little booties are such a fierce combo.  Luckily, we were able to find some amazing pieces to recreate this vibe.  A Rachel Zoe striped skirt pairs perfectly with an affordable faux-fur jacket, and any black ankle booties will do.  See?  Easy!

 

3.  Isabel Marant

Isabel Marant has made her name synonymous with “quintessential French style”, and her latest collection stayed true to that maxim.  The designer pairs overtly-sexy pieces with covered-up classics for a mix that’s understated and badass, and this look from Fall 2014 is our favorite.  Zara’s asymmetrically cut black leather skirt will help you nail the Paris vibe, and their oversized black sweater is a no-brainer.  We loved Isabel’s mesh “scarf” necklace, but this Allen Schwartz necklace is almost as cool.  Add some studded Steve Madden boots, and you’ve got a mix like Marant!

Just because winter is on its way out, doesn’t mean you need to store away your boots just yet! The bootie has made its statement in the fashion world, and we love their versatility between different seasons. While the classically styled, neutral colored ankle boot that got you through the winter can make the transition into your wardrobe for spring, we’re all about trying new trends and incorporating them into our style and the spring bootie is the perfect way to do so! The best part about booties is that they look great with almost anything and celebrities have rocked them with everything from cut-off shorts, to mullet dresses, skirts, and jeans. Don’t be afraid to experiment with styles, as the spring bootie adds a fun flair to your look and is a great way to add some spring into your step. From floral, to pastels, studs, and metallic, it’s bound to be a bootie-ful spring!

Celebrities (typically) look amazing from events, to street style, the red carpet, and everything in between. Ever wonder where these looks come from? Straight off the runways, of course! Often time’s celebrities will change the runway look to add a little flair of their own. In these spring celebrity looks, Jessica Chastain and Gwyenth Paltrow opted to shorten their dresses, whereas Anne Hathaway added a little length. Cate Blanchett even changed the outfit all together by pairing her peplum with black pants instead of patterned ones for a more refined look. Comparing the runway to celebrity looks, which do you prefer?

Isabel Marant traditionally has featured a theme on the Parisian runways during Fashion Week, but her Fall/Winter 2013 collection was more toned down this year. Marant highlighted super tight, layered knitwear in black, navy, and cream for her daytime pieces, and for evening, focused on heavy embellished jackets worn above tight trousers. Her color palette stuck to darker tones appropriate for fall and winter, and then added studs, beautiful pops of white and those couture wedge sneakers we love so much. Marant’s fall take on her well-known wedge bootie was covered with tufts of shiny fur then wrapped in straps of Velcro, and are great for a day-to-night fashion-forward look. On her overall collection, Marant said she was inspired “…by those miserable days and nights in winter when you don’t want to go outside . . . No matter where you are—a party, a friend’s house, or back outside where it’s cold—I wanted it to be easy to adjust from that cold, awful weather to being inside and looking great the whole time.”

While the collection as a whole was not overly unique, it did feature some fabulous studded statement pieces, and the shoes in particular were must-haves! What do you think of Marant’s fall collection?
