As the final fashion show of Paris Fashion Week comes to a close, and we say goodbye to another exquisite fashion month, it’s time to analyze the styles and trends that topped the charts. From sequins to sunshine, doodles to designs, Paris kept us on the edge of our seats. Let’s take a look at the top trends from PFW.
Boho chic was all the rage this season, with designers dressing down their models and bringing back the peasant style. A.P.C.’s peasant dress with denim vest is perfect for perusing the flower market, while Giambattista Valli’s floral dress was made for folk dancing. Take the peasant style around town with Vanessa Bruno’s gamboge peasant blouse, and Kitx’s macrame skirt and blouse are perfect for exploring a quaint town in the south of France. Chloe’s rustic dress is perfect for sitting around a campfire, roasting marshmallows and drinking tea as the fire crackles and the trees in the forest sway with the autumn breeze.
