There is a reason street style images and stars alike intrigue us beyond belief. It's not just the designer pieces and noteworthy styling techniques that get our hearts racing—it's the way in which these women carry themselves while wearing some of the most complex trends around. And while we love the style of American women, there is something extraordinary about the way in which ladies from around the world put together outfits, and we need to copy that something ASAP.
The outfits captured on the streets during London, Milan, and Paris fashion weeks are somehow on trend yet not overplayed in any way. This is the kind of look we should always aspire to put together when we get dressed in the morning. Before the outfit combinations we are about to show to you catch wave here in America, we suggest you start shopping the pieces you need to re-create them before anyone else does.
Ahead, see the international outfit combinations that are about to blow up in the U.S. and the pieces you'll need to pull them off!
M i l a n
Beret + Oversize Coat + Skinny Jeans + Boots: Wear an oversize coat with skinny jeans to balance out the proportions. The beret adds that certain je ne sais quoi.
This menswear-inspired coat will look great over several of your fall essentials.
Midi Dress + Jeans + White Shoes: Wearing a dress over pants is a daring layering technique that will impress all of your fashionable friends.
Turn heads in this vibrant color.
Shearling Coat + Tulle Dress + Chunky Boots: The ballerina-inspired trend looks best (in our opinion) when contrasted with heavier pieces like this shearling coat and those edgy boots.
The layering piece all the cool girls are trying.
L o n d o n
One-Shoulder Sweater + Cropped Pants + Statement Heels: More and more sweaters this season are revealing some part of the shoulder, whether it be through a tiny cutout or a full cold shoulder.
Meet the cold-weather version of the off-the-shoulder top.
Cropped Sweater + Poplin Top + Wide-Leg Jeans: Play with proportions here by wearing wide-leg pants, an oversize button-down, and a cropped sweater all at once.
For those days when you're over your skinny jeans.
Sweaterdress + Sneakers: Make a sweaterdress look less stuffy by pairing it with classic and cool sneakers.
The color and oversize shape of this dress give it a retro feel.
P a r i s
Trench Coat + Slip Dress + Working Boots: One of the best parts about this look is the subtle graphic tee popping out from underneath the slip dress. Add a trench coat and working boots on top for a statement-making fall look.
The red accent gives these boots a little more polish.
Patent Coat + T-Shirt + Jeans + Platforms: This patent material was everywhere during fashion week, and we love it in this coat version. As seen here, it can make even jeans and a white T-shirt pop.
If you can pass up faux pink fur, more power to you.
Bright Sweater + Stirrup Leggings + Pumps: When wearing a shapeless sweater, opt for a bright color and pair it with forward stirrup leggings will make you look anything but frumpy.
