Sheer is a great way to add a wow factor to an outfit. It can be used to add sophistication, sexiness, fun, or all three! If you’re not sure how to incorporate sheer into your wardrobe, here are some ideas for you:
- Sheer top over another top like a silk camisole or chiffon blouse under a crisp white button-down shirt.
- Sheer dress was worn with opaque tights and boots in winter.
- Layering items of different sheers together say, an off-the-shoulder top with a floor-length skirt made of chiffon or one that looks like it was made from strips of tulle (otherwise known as tulle skirts).
Long and Loose
Long and loose is a trend that has been seen in many of the shows at Paris Fashion Week. This look is easy to wear, as it is relaxed and comfortable. It can also be very flattering on many body types, as it will add volume where necessary while remaining loose elsewhere.
However, if you don’t have time to make your outfit from scratch, there are plenty of ready-to-wear pieces available now that will help you achieve this look without much effort or money spent!
Plaids are making a comeback, and we’re so here for it. They’re a classic pattern that can be worn in any season and with any outfit, from jeans to dresses, so if you want to add some interest and texture to your look without breaking the bank or having to think too hard about it, plaids are your answer. Plus the colors are amazing this season from bright pinks and greens to purple-and-cream combos and even navy blues, there’s something for everyone!
They also come in all kinds of fabrics: woolen flannels will keep you warm during winter while cotton check shirts work great for summer picnics or even just strolling around town on a hot day. Be sure not to leave home without one!
Feathers are a popular trend in fashion, and they can be used in many different ways. Feathers can be placed on accessories, such as jewelry or bags, or even on clothing. They can also be used for shoes and hats!
Some of my favorite feather-accessorized outfits from this season’s fashion shows include:
- Atelier Versace (pictured above): This beautiful feathered jacket is from their Spring 2019 collection. The design is simple yet elegant I love it!
- Chanel: This hat is gorgeous! It’s so intricate that I’m sure it took a lot of time to make. You can tell that the person who designed this piece put a lot of thought into it because of all the details involved in its creation (like how everything has been sewn together).
Paris Fashion Week Gave us Many Inspirations for Next Season
Paris fashion week gave us many inspirations for next season.
When you are looking for inspiration, think about the runway and the street. A runway is a place where designers show what they have been working on and what they plan to put in stores. This is where we get our ideas from. The street is where we see people wearing what they like but also what they can afford. This may not be as much fun but it gives us ideas too!
When choosing your outfit, consider mixing up your pieces with new textures and patterns while keeping a clean silhouette that incorporates both masculine and feminine elements such as tailored pants paired with a sheer top or blouse worn beneath an oversized cardigan sweater vest worn over fitted dress pants tucked into heeled boots (think: Mary Poppins).
Paris Fashion Week is a celebration of French couture and its inspirations, from the renowned biannual fashion week to the world’s most famous runway event. The French capital is home to some of the world’s most influential fashion designers, and for many years, Paris has been at the forefront of modern fashion.
The beginning of Paris Fashion Week was in 1952-when Christian Dior presented his first collection on a catwalk at the Grand Palais. Since then, it has become one of the most important events in the fashion calendar. The first show was attended by over 5,000 people who wanted to see what this new designer had created for them.
Nowadays, there are many different shows taking place during Paris Fashion Week, including Haute Couture shows by Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier among others; ready-to-wear collections by Balmain and Givenchy; accessories presentations such as those by Hermes; menswear shows by Giorgio Armani; womenswear presentations by Lanvin and Sonia Rykiel; as well as beauty presentations such as those by Lancome/YSL Beauty (Yves Saint Laurent). Paris Fashion Week is one of the most highly anticipated events of the year. This year, it’s taking place from September 24th to September 30th, and there are already a ton of stylish looks that have been revealed.
The theme of Paris Fashion Week this year is “Femme Fatale”, and designers are drawing inspiration from everything from old Hollywood to the French Revolution.
But why should you care what they’re wearing? Well, because they’re inspiring some pretty incredible trends that you’ll be seeing all over the runways and soon after, in your closet!
The Guipure Lace Skirt
This skirt was made famous by designer Michael Kors when he wore it at his Spring/Summer 2019 show in New York City. The detail on this skirt is so intricate that it’s hard to believe it was created by hand! The pattern was inspired by French lace, which was used for wedding gowns back in the day.
These shoes were originally designed for tennis players and were made with a lightweight material called palladium, which is often used in jewelry today due to its durability and resistance to corrosion. Palladium shoes have recently been adopted by fashionistas.
After attending one of the shows, I was blown away by how the designers were able to incorporate so many different elements from Parisian architecture into their designs. From the Eiffel Tower to Notre Dame Cathedral, I saw these iconic landmarks in everything from clothing to jewelry.
This made me think about how we could use these architectural elements in our work. What if we incorporated a piece of Notre Dame into every piece of furniture we made? Or if we designed all our homes using lines that were inspired by the shapes of Parisian buildings?
The possibilities are endless!
