Paris Fashion Week is the last leg of the trip in the long haul that is Fashion Month. As such, we have the unique ability to rejigger our wardrobes, learning from days of running around in blister-inducing heels and jackets that look good but are actually too warm for the weather. We say to ourselves: In Paris, it's gonna be different. In Paris, we'll always have a delicate breeze in our hair, a skirt that twirls just so, and jeans that are tastefully ripped in only the right places.
And, it seems, the bevy of editors, stylists, and street-style stars have made their adjustments, too. Which can only mean one thing: that Paris street style just might be the strongest of all the cities. Not only do we have the benefit of pulling inspiration from weeks of running around in New York, London, and Milan. But, come on, you can't really look bad in front of the Eiffel Tower. So, we've rounded up the best snaps of everyone channeling their inner French girl with one last street style rally.
