Look for Less: Paris Haute Couture Street Style
While floor grazing Valentino gowns and jewel encrusted Chanel suits always draw fashion's best and brightest to the front row each couture week, the main attraction arguably took place in the Parisian streets this year, as first time models to the most seasoned show-goers dashed from show to show.
From custom embroidered Gucci bomber jackets to ensembles swathed in silvers and spring's boldest hues, this month, MODA draws your Look for Less inspiration from the street style stars at Paris Haute Couture Week.
Dressing comfortably doesn't have to be dull or sloppy. Combine a loose top with more fitted bottoms and accessorize sparingly for a look that registers as laid back yet put together. Experiment with loud prints for items that otherwise have more traditional silhouettes, and shop in the men's section for pieces that are just the right amount of oversized.
Dressing up for a formal event in the summer can feel like a chore, especially when you know you're going to sweat through just about anything you put on. Opt for light, airy fabrics like chiffon, silk, cotton and linen, and dress up more casual pieces with flashy accessories and shoes.
Layering different looks is most likely the last thing that comes to mind when getting dressed during the summer. Wearing an oversized sweater or blouse underneath strappy dresses and tanks, however, is a clever way to recycle items that might be inappropriate in an office or casual setting when worn on their own. It's also a great way to reimagine pieces you've grown tired of styling with the same pair of jeans over and over again!
