When it comes to Paris Fashion Week, the street style from the French capital often provides as much outfit inspiration as the runways. And all for good reason — the Parisian style set never fails to show up with a certain je nais se quoi, expertly balancing an on-trend ensemble with an air of effortlessness. See: worn-in leather, elevated iterations of denim, and other 2023 fashion trends that appeared over the course of the last 10 days.
While the outfits may not be as unexpected as in London, the looks of Paris Fashion Week are undoubtedly noteworthy as a masterclass in the art of casual-yet-chic dressing. Since the week closes the Fall/Winter 2023 season, showgoers are often picking and choosing the most accessible runway trends seen earlier in the month to try their hand at six months early. For example, the shades of gray and punk sensibility from the New York runways are showing up through monochromatic looks, silver jewelry, and an affinity for leather while statement bags courtesy of London have become a hit on the streets, too, whether that be through a pop of color or oversized silhouette.
And, no need to leave the trend trials solely to the PFW attendees, these street style trends are ready to shop –– no matter where in the world you may be.

Ever since It girl label Khaite’s bomber jacket took over last year, the infatuation with vintage-feeling outerwear has been on the rise. Whether it’s actually from decades past or recently purchased, the idea of worn-in leather is making its way from the runways to day-to-day in an array of washed colorations for a perfectly undone look.
Gray is making its case as the neutral hue to watch for the Fall/Winter 2023 season –– just ask 16Arlington, Bottega Veneta, and Dion Lee. Showgoers are in agreement as a palette of cool grays became one of the must-wear colors on the streets of Paris.
This season’s must-know styling cue? Head-to-toe neutrals with the perfect pop of color. You can just about shop the rainbow this season when it comes to the accessories market, so have your pick at your favorite shade and you’re ready to ace the aesthetic.
Last winter’s runways brought space dye back into our winter wardrobe rotations, and fashion insiders have solidified that multicolor knits are here to stay. A brightly hued pattern pops on a chunky knit and works just as well in a lighter-weight iteration that’s equipped to bring you into the warmer months.
Silver metallics are garnering attention on the runways –– and it’s certainly having an influence on our jewelry choices, too. Prepare to expertly accessorize next season’s silver looks with jewelry pairings that are fit for the job.
While red may just be the “new pink,” shades of blue are a close second. Attendees tried their hand at the emerging hue through maxi dresses, knitwear, and statement-making accessories. This color is sure to be a winner no matter the season.
