It’s all about those elevated basics.
Paris Fashion Week closed out the Spring/Summer 2022 season with a bang. Although it hosted a handful of heritage brands, such as Dior, Valentino, and Saint Laurent, rising designers like Botter and Coperni also made their mark.
The runway looks did not disappoint—and neither did the street style. Just as the sidewalks of New York, London, and Milan showcased all of our favorite fall 2021 trends, the streets of Paris showed similarly aspirational looks. One word to describe them all? Effortless. From monochrome ensembles and oversized separates to pleated trousers and statement sunglasses, A-list attendees proved that elevated basics deserve a permanent place in our wardrobes.
See for yourself with these 12 Paris street-style looks that ruled the French capital. They’re easy to replicate, so add them to your cart to upgrade your fall fashion game.

Ribbed Knit & Relaxed Pants
If you tend to opt for classic, put-together looks, a ribbed tank knit in crisp white will be your new go-to top. Alice + Olivia makes a close alternative to this high-neck option.

Chloe Harrouche proves that the secret to French outfitting is simplicity, quality, and comfort—and that you can never go wrong with perfectly tailored pieces.
