Paris Fashion Week has officially come to a close. That was a ride! If you're only just catching up with all the catwalks and are as hungrily devoted as we are to scrolling through every single show, you may observe that this season has been both interestingly irreverent and refreshingly relaxed. On that note, here, five runway lewks from Spring-Summer 2020 you can replicate for yourself sans sweat.
While we admittedly have mixed feelings about the surprisingly laidback, unapologetically smart-casual vibe of the latest Givenchy (we're still not over Spring 2016's literal sheer, lacy, silken exquisiteness), we do jive with this look. It's a fitting update on easy, quick monochrome dressing--dress your tonal satins down via, no kidding, a pair of flip-flops.
The poised pinnacle of French-girl chic: Le striped bateau top. Parisiennes use it to speak volumes, from "oh, this old thing?" to "I had nothing to wear the morning after, so..." and Virginie Viard's Chanel knows to tune in. Team with carrot-leg denims, a cozy matching cardigan, a smattering of double-C chain belts, and, just for kicks, an enormous flower brooch.
Dior's breezy new collection is pretty much the realized visual epitome of imagining what classic Canadian novel heroine Anne of Green Gables might don in the present. She likely would tumble 'round Avonlea in this 'fit consisting of a raffia romper tossed over a crisp button-down. Don't forget a bucket hat! Equal parts mischief and modesty, we think.
Needless to say, the fur ruff is completely optional, but consider the otherwise sleek, silent impact of this subdued knit-and-maxi-skirt combo. A tip: Leave your cream sweater untucked and left to intentionally hang rather shapelessly over your floor-sweeping hem for that elusive hint of elegant nonchalance.
At the risk of sounding insufferably repetitive, this certainly isn't the much-missed Phoebe Philo's Celine; still, keep in mind that it's Hedi Slimane's time to shine now, and there ain't nothin' you can do about it. We've zoomed in on his freshest offering and found that he seems determined to uphold the house's reverence for easy-to-don pieces that'll last a lifetime...on his own terms, thank you very much. This prarie-appropriate frock, belted and booted, is a clear example.
