7 New Street Style Trends Taking Off in Paris Right Now

Sun's out; new trends are out! The fashion set have taken a break from vacation travel season to descend upon Paris for Haute Couture Fashion Week, and it doesn't look like they've traveled light. Suitcases full of the latest looks have already been plundered for new goods and fresh combinations over the past couple of days, and it's proving to be a useful boost for our current summer wardrobes

There are many new-season trends we've already become well acquainted with, but there's always room for something different, and this lot are already jumping ahead of what's popular right now in order to inject a little excitement into your hot-weather lineup.

Couture Week is always more elaborate and decadent than the other fashion weeks when it comes to the fashion both on and off the runway, so we've decided to double down on the looks we'd genuinely be able to imitate or be inspired from IRL. From the two most unusual trending colors the front row are backing (although, there's no sign of a letup from beige) to the little accessory switches that appear to be making all the difference, here's what's going to be in in no time at all.

Pink has been popular in fashion circles for a long time now, but a specific shade is bubbling up at the moment. Worn in one block, like Elena Perminova here, can be rather striking.

But it also looks cool mixed with other power pastels, as with Tiffany Hsu's retro suit and open-collared shirt here.

Salmon pink is strangely good with black accessories—not something that can be said for all pretty, light colors.

Double up and wear a matching salmon skirt suit. You'll be checking off next season's trends too.

Why not match your eyewear to the colors of your outfit?

Vintage-style frames, complete with tinted lenses, are a subtle way to get your personality across.

And they make your world look like a 1970s movie, which is no bad thing.

Square-toe sandals, boots, and pumps have been coming to the fore, but this week has confirmed them as the shoe style to be wearing.

From Bottega Veneta to Acne Studios, quite a few designer pairs are catching on.

Square-toe mules (like Wandler's super-popular iteration) are also proving to be a hit.

Sorry, biker jackets. Blazers are still very much de rigueur. And they're literally bigger than ever.


(Image credit: Szymon Brzóska/@thestylestalkercom)

Worn as part of a trouser suit or not, the silhouettes are jumbo.


(Image credit: Szymon Brzóska/@thestylestalkercom)

But can easily be controlled by cinching in a waist.

Don't be afraid of jumbo proportions—just balance out with heels.

Or wear a longline jacket with a very short skirt á la Pernille Teisbaek.

The fashion crowd are eschewing the obvious summer prints like gingham and florals in favor of more unexpected patterns.


(Image credit: Szymon Brzóska/@thestylestalkercom)

So we've been seeing vintage etchings, Wedgewood-style motifs, wood prints, and much more across the pavements of Paris.


(Image credit: Szymon Brzóska/@thestylestalkercom)

That includes wearing traditionally wintry patterns—like checks—on hot, hot days.

Mesh tops are particularly ripe bases for this burgeoning trend.

And let's not leave out camo. (See the bucket hat?) That's going to be a bigger trend in autumn. Trust us.

Salmon pink has competition in the form of the yellow spectrum. From golden satins to butter-yellow crêpes, last summer's favorite color continues.

Yellow always works well with white accessories.


(Image credit: Szymon Brzóska/@thestylestalkercom)

But don't be afraid to put a little something extra in the mix, like these clashing black sandals.

María Bernad's unbuttoned shirt styling trick is something we predicted would go mainstream.

When the women of Couture aren't wearing one of the two power pastels featured above, the mood is still very much about neutral colors (black, beige, cream, white) worn in smart, pared-back separates.

Adding a little maximalism to a minimalist look can be done easily with a chain belt.


(Image credit: Szymon Brzóska/@thestylestalkercom)

Sneakers instantly help make short hemlines look more casual.

We're still not done with wearing beige tones head to toe.
