Along with all the excitement happening on the runway, Paris Fashion Week Spring 2013 served up some ultra-chic street style. This year, it's all about la fleur, or should we say, the flower. Yep, that's right — florals are in. And not just a little floral print accessory here and there — it's all about over-the-top, floral-on-floral and vibrant colours. If you want to make this trend work, don't be afraid to layer your prints. You can also pare down the look using a neutral jacket, and be sure to accessorise in block colours (you won't need any more patterns). And do keep the jewellery to a minimum: You don't want to look très over the top. Here are our picks for pulling off this look.
Take a cue from the Korean fashionistas who stormed the streets during Seoul Fashion Week. We're seeing colour palettes heavy on the winter neutrals paired with accessories in eye-popping fluoros. And speaking of "eye-popping", these ladies are working some serious chunky jewellery, not to mention baseball caps, huge envelope clutches, faux fur and (yes! yes!) actual sneakers.
To capture some Seoul street style, stick to darker colours for your "base outfit", then go wild with the accessories. If you're not sure where to start, we've rounded up some inspiration.
For serious South African style, we're liking layers, à la the street style on display at the 2012 Mercedes-Benz Cape Town Fashion Week. Try mixing fur, prints and texture alongside delicate accessories. Extra points if you don a pair of peep-toe shoes paired with ankle socks.
This look requires you to be utterly fearless. Layer items that have a relaxed fit and actively think about how textures, prints and interesting elements will work together as a whole. Use a peep-toe pump to amp up the femininity of the look, and accessorise with dark sunnies or a voluminous faux fur shrug to add sex appeal. This look could work in a range of colours but, personally, we like greens, blues, browns and blacks, with just a hint of gold in the accessories. Here are our picks for pulling this off:
With Brazil Fashion Week came street style featuring knock-your-socks-off colours paired with leather accessories. Think chunky belts, bold-coloured sandals, patterned skirts, heavy cropped jackets and huge sunglasses. The key here is mixing bold colours with prints and leather accessories. Pick sunnies with coloured frames, neon sandals, bustier tops in bold hues and bold floral-printed skirts or pants. Then give the look a harder edge with leather accessories and a chunky cropped jacket. Here are our picks for making the look your own:
We were spoiled for choice with all the street style on display during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia. But we have to admit that the lady-meets-rocker look was the standout. There's usually a lot going on in this look, but let's break it down: Chanel-style jacket, layered necklaces, wide belt, chunky- knit-jumper-over-blouse, clutch, metallic leggings and wedge combat-style boots. Sheer genius, is it not? If you're stuck for inspiration, try mixing bright colours with metallics and woolly textures. Better still, take a look at our favourite items for bringing this look to life:
