5 Massive Street Style Trends From Paris Couture Week

Collection Street Style.

I'll spare you the intro about how the biggest runway show took place on the streets this Paris Couture Week. The same can be said for every fashion week these days, being that the street style circus is such an ingrained part of the action. The one thing I will say is that the haute couture shows are perhaps the most dressed-up, star-studded and chaotic of all.

They also make for incredible style-watching as the trends come out in full force. From the spring/summer 2017 haute couture presentations , here are five of the biggest street style trends.

1. Dior's feminist tee

We should all be feminists. So says Maria Grazia Chiuri, the first-ever female creative director of Christian Dior, on a t-shirt from her debut collection for the fashion house. It was everywhere this past week, proof that Grazia Chiuri is both influential and shrewd. Style-wise it works for its simplicity: It looks just as cool with a sheer evening skirt as it does with skinny jeans. But it's the message (it’s a nod to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's essay of the same name) that makes the statement even more powerful than the design. And in the current political climate, it's one that clearly resonates.

2.  The puffer jacket

Oh, how the street style crowd quietly rejoices when the gods of high fashion legitimize a winter trend that's both warm and comfortable! Much like sneakers became the cool-girl alternative to heels (giving ankles everywhere a much needed respite) so, too, have puffer jackets been given a fashionable spin. Thanks to Balenciaga et al., you can now leave the house in what is basically bedding — and be applauded for it.

3. Winter whites

White can be a bit tough to pull off in winter, though far less so when you happen to be a leggy socialite or supermodel upon whom anything looks good. From Elena Perminova's full-on fencing look to Olivia Palermo's corseted white knit, the street style looks at the couture shows embraced snowy hues in a way that was both bold and chic.

4. Street-punk.

The best way I can describe this trend is streetwear with a punk edge. Typical elements include boyish beanies, chunky-soled combat boots or creepers, hoodies, ripped denim and studs. Oh, and pretty much anything by Vetements.

5. Khaki…and red

Khaki wasn't exactly keeping a low profile during the haute couture shows — in fact, it showed up in abundance. One of the more surprising trends was taking military-style khaki coats, bombers or boiler suits and throwing them together with a clash of bright red. If you've been feeling like your army green parka was a bit too low-key and not making enough of a statement (after all, everybody has one) you now know the solution. Red alert.
