Just when I thought I had my fall outfit ideas sorted for fall, Paris Fashion Week rolled around and armed me with a whole new set of inspiration to draw from. This week, the temperatures in the city dropped to actual fall digits, and the fashion set has followed suit by throwing on all of their stylish layers. That means everything from cozy, chunky knits and over-the-knee boots to jumpsuits and high-waisted trousers.
To say that I’ve been taking notes is an understatement. My phone is currently flooded with screenshots from Instagram with the pieces and outfits that I can’t wait to try out for myself. Ahead, I’ve rounded up some of my absolute favorites looks from PFW on the street style scene. And here’s the great news: I’ve also shopped out each look so you can try it out for yourself.
