We’ll Always Have Paris – Street Style

Afternoon. Fancy a bit of street style from Paris Fashion Week?

‘Course you do.

Allez!

Deranged college roomie nicks your clothes, cuts them up & wears them all at once for a Varsity / OITNB mash up.

Killing 2 fashion birds with one stone here, cami over a jumper, tucked into  Mom jeans.

Keener on the ruffles than the dress itself but included this ’cause it reminds me of the tablecloths in a fave Italian in Shepherds Bush. Where they gave you free Amaretto
yay
Wow. Imagine waking up every day and looking like this woman. You’d be wearing that ecstatic expression as well as some vintagey wide leg denim. *high fives all round*

**TREND SPOTTED KLAXON ** #1 – BIT OF A DRAG

Trousers OR coats (take your pick) trailing the floor. Don’t get them hemmed just let them drag across the ground with the nonchalance of a woman who makes so much dollar she can dry clean everything and never has to run for the bus.

Try and avoid tripping on your platforms, A&E is no fun on a Friday night, ladies!

My favourite look ‘Off duty model.’ Slouchy trackies and a cool t-shirt. WANT.

**TREND ALERT KLAXON** #2 – GOING TO THE MAILBOX FOR YOUR PAPER

After I predicted the rise of the Arthur Dent ‘Dressing Gown / Coat’ back in November, I’m pleased to see Les Femmes de Paris taking it to heart. It’s the logical progression from the outdoor pyjama trend, after all.

I would team a dressing gown coat with the (above) ‘I have given up’ t-shirt for that signed-off-work-due-to-depression-chic. Which, if it isn’t a look already, bloody well should be.

**TREND ALERT KLAXON** #3 ME AND MY (EYE)SHADOW

Think these gals have just come from a show, but they clearly got the make up memo, because blue eyeshadow is back for 2016!

You may scoff now but you’ll be doing the Pat Butcher / Bladerunner look yourself before you know it.

**TREND ALERT KLAXON** #4 – TICK TOCK (YOU DON’T STOP)

Technicolour moc-croc.

Sorry to have you tell you this. But here is the undeniable evidence. 😦

**TREND ALERT KLAXON** #5 COAT OF MANY NEW COLOURS

The Pink Coat is dead. Murdered then buried in a shallow grave by…

The Yellow Coat. :-0

Goddamnit. Ebay your pink coat now, people **THIS IS NOT A DRILL**

grey
Nothing remarkable about this but thought you might like a nice glimpse of some soothing grey after all that colour.  *Breathes* And relax. That’s better.

When the apocalypse kicks off and it’s your bleedin’ wedding day 😦                               Massively inconvenient I know, but best be ready with an erm pointless but hardcore looking shoulder holster of some sort. And cheer up, it may be the end of the world but at least the wedding photos won’t date, what with there being no future an’ all! 🙂

**TREND ALERT KLAXON** #6 – BIT OF SKIRT

Interesting one this, some sort of statement skirt over, a pair of trews.

Looks easy enough. Fringing or lace, it’s all good, yo.

**TREND ALERT KLAXON** #7 – FLASHBACK à Londres

Following on from London’s rampant just-discharged-from-hospital-gown trend, this is a fresh French twist.

flash back

Props to this woman, why fork out for a brand new, on trend, back-draft top when you can achieve the look by getting wearing  your boyfriend’s shirt back to front?

**BEST KNITWEAR KLAXON** – WIZARD’S SLEEVE

This was my favourite jumper of the week. Hands down.

Imagine having the kudos of wearing THE best piece of knitwear to fashion week?

Oh the smugness!

wow jumperbut then…wait a minute…

wow jumper 2Quelle horreur!

But good to know this kind of thing even happens to the fashion elite.

Love that woman in the Citroen behind has totally clocked it and is ringing her mate to tell her. Lolz.

Bet the pair met up and had a right laugh about it after.

Hope you enjoyed my picks.

Is it just me though, or did Paris seem like a real rag bag of make-it-up-as-you-go-along arbitrariness compared to the cool togetherness of London?

Maybe I’m biased but as we all know, London Girls Do It Better. (Someone pls make this into bumper sticker.)

Let me know what you think and which new trend you’ll be trying in the comments section.

Thanks for reading. And Happy Fri-yay!
