Whew, we made it (or did we?). It's finally the end of fashion month and it went out with a bang. We started in NYC with trends ranging from corsets to the next tie-dye. Traveled across the globe to London and Milan, then finished in Paris and let the trends from the city marinate in our brains. We've discussed our favorite shows, saved street style images we want to copy ASAP, and lived vicariously through the Instagrams of others.
This season's Paris Fashion Week took an overall turn for the better. Different interpretations of the '70s carried well into the week at Paco Rabanne, Issey Miyake held an artful dance party, and girl gangs coordinated their looks for the runways. Designers reminded editors and influencers of what the spirit of fashion is all about (even when you're feeling fatigued and exhausted from attending every show). It was an energizing change and reminder that fashion is all about being yourself.
Ahead, the trends from Paris Fashion Week that we can't wait to wear in 2020.
1. Crochet Queen
If you've been itching to take up crocheting as a hobby, now might just be the time. The craft is seeing a revival on the runways with long, flowy dresses. Depending on the shade of white and silhouette, the dresses can take on a variety of interpretations, from pirate to fancy doily.
2. Swiss Miss
Baby ruffles, short hems, and sweet bows are essential to any Swiss mountainside look. It's Sound of Music chic with easy plaid patterns and detailed embroidery. We'll see you at the chalet.
3. Hole Punches
But actually don't. This season is all about hole-punched coats and spontaneous cutouts in your favorite classic white tanks and black trousers. They're purposeful and add a nice surprise (also some breeze!) to any outfit.
4. Preppy Polos
Country club travels across the Atlantic Ocean to Paris!!! Polos had their moment in the spotlight thanks to thoughtful styling underneath textured slip dresses and voluminous skirts. Time to dig up your old Hollister ones and give them another go.
5. Hips Don't Lie
Said Shakira and many Parisian designers this season. The focus shifted from shoulders to hips this season. Peplum tops and cropped A-lines made a quick comeback while other designers created their own structure in the hips.
6. Very Terry
Bath towels, step up! These clothes dry themselves, and you. Terry fabric isn't just reserved for showers and washing your face anymore, we're giving it a new life as a dress or swimsuit. It's a fun way to add some texture, and oh so soft too.
