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:
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!
