AW15 Wraps Up In Paris

Paris, the last leg in the AW15 fashion diary and one of the most important. This last week the city of chic played host to some of the most influential FROW go’ers and of course the unforgettable return of Derek Zoolander and Hansel at Valentino – blue steel is back.

LAYER UP
A multitude of layers make this trend winter appropriate. Use clever layering of pieces, texture and colour to give a look your own unique stamp.

THE ROLL-NECK
The biggest story for next season? The roll neck. The funnel neck. The polo neck. The turtle neck. This old classic has just become the new must-have monopolising the catwalks.

PASTELS
Not a usual for the colder months, pastels take a wintery turn on the catwalk. Shades of sugary pink, mint green and duck egg blue will be a big hit in the next season.

VICTORIANA
This trend takes its inspiration from the Victorian era. With high neck ruffles and leg of mutton sleeves, the look is both prim and modern.

CAPED CRUSADER
The smart girls cover up of choice. Ultra wearable, capes, cloaks and ponchos were a unanimous favourite on the catwalk; from dark tailoring at Saint Laurent to the flowing hooded knitted cape at Vivienne Westwood this is one trend you should buy into.

FRINGING
Fashion has a fringe moment. Tasseled hemlines, trims and boots danced down the catwalk – it’s playful and flirty. Time to get your swing on.

70’S REVISITED
The 70’s have been making a reappearance and are now looking stronger than ever. Bring out your inner hippy and look out for boho chic, loose silhouettes, suede, roll necks, 70’s prints and square sunglasses.

TEXTURE
Clash your textures – in fact, the more texture the better! Fashion gets fluffy, fuzzy and feathery on the catwalk.

FURRY BUSINESS
Teddy bear chic. Fur is no longer restricted to outerwear. We saw fur trims, hems, arms and bags – anything goes when it comes to fur for AW15.

COLOURED FUR
Inject some colour into your winter wardrobe with a pop of faux fur. Oversize, longer length and stripes get the thumbs up from the fashion pack.

THIGH RISE
Provocative, fun and flirty, the thigh high slit gives a sexy glimpse of leg. Dresses and skirts showed off slits and splits – I guess the only question, how high will you dare?
