We love high fashion, don't get us wrong, but as our Street Style Awards will attest to, we also love us a bit of style spotting on the pavement. As far as Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week is concerned, there's always such a wealth of inspiration—there are the French girl-cool outfits from the local cohort, as well as edgy ensembles from the international set—sometimes we don't even know where to start.
This year though, there's a standout item that we think deserves a bigger spotlight: the blouse. And we're not talking a basic button-down, we're talking every iteration, from flouncy, fancy, metallic, muted and everything in between. We'd go so far as to say it's the next It-piece (and a pretty versatile one at that).
