Notable Trends from Paris Fashion Week Fall 2019

Paris is the ultimate culmination of Fashion Month. Every season, the world watches as designers pull out their biggest guns, presenting the most forward collections across halls and palaces. And while the momentum for some trends like animal print and workwear have long been established in other fashion capitals like New York and Milan, Paris showed no signs of falling behind. As the cradle of fashion, they delivered in commanding their own sets of trends to follow. Here are some notable ones to try for yourself:

Bucket Hats

The ‘90s resurgence has reached an all-time high. Tie-dye and denim on denim are making their rounds, but no piece is quite as nostalgic as the bucket hat. Overshadowing beanies and floppy hats, Paris officially cemented the bucket hat as the ultimate accessory of the season. According to fashion blogger Aimee Song, they’re actually more versatile than you think. They’re also pretty much everywhere now, from high-end versions at Prada, to more affordable options at Adidas.

Neon Green

Another fixture of ‘90s fashion, neon is one of the most head-turning trends of the season, particularly in electrifying shades of green. On the runways of Marine Serre, reflective fabrics were even used to further amplify the show-stealing colors. If you aren’t feeling as bold, this Neon Alder sweater from Line & Dot is an easy way to incorporate highlighter hues in your wardrobe. Wear with your usual denim for a fun yet sophisticated ensemble.



Checkered came in full force at the Paris Fashion Week. At Off-White, designers steered towards a new direction, showing a psychedelic version of the print in vibrant palettes. For a more casual approach, this classic flannel shirt from Woman Within features the print in various colors for a unique take on the trend. Wear it on its own for an everyday look, or throw it over a graphic tee and cut-off shorts to channel your inner “off-duty model.”

 “No Make-up” Make-up Look

Although plenty of fashion trends were more on the maximalist side of the spectrum, the opposite can be said for runway beauty. Models at Loewe and Lanvin walked sporting clear skin and slicked back hair that allowed naturalism to shine. To get the same “no make-up” make-up look, The Luxi Look recommends Millennial favorite brand Glossier, whose straightforward products put more emphasis on healthy skin than heavy products meant to conceal.

Statement Earrings

Jewelry can either make or break an outfit, and statement earrings can definitely drive your entire look. On the runway, designers went all out with luxurious chandelier crystals, metallic spiked hoops, and abstract sculptures — all hanging from the lobes of models. While not as bold, these asymmetrical earrings from Free People are a nice take on the mismatched style, able to inject glamor into the plainest of outfits.

Power Pads

Shoulders became the canvas for creativity this fashion week. At Louis Vuitton, they commanded viewers’ full attention with their blinding sparkles. Meanwhile, Nicolas Ghesquière stole the show with towering ruffles even taller than some models. Whether they were on dresses, blazers, or plain tops, it’s clear that shoulder pads are back for their second life.
