ZARA:7 New Street Style Trends Taking Off in Paris Right Now

Sun’s out; new trends are out! The fashion set have taken a break from vacation travel season to descend upon Paris for Haute Couture Fashion Week, and it doesn’t look like they’ve traveled light. Suitcases full of the latest looks have already been plundered for new goods and fresh combinations over the past couple of days, and it’s proving to be a useful boost for our current summer wardrobes.
There are many new-season trends we’ve already become well acquainted with, but there’s always room for something different, and this lot are already jumping ahead of what’s popular right now in order to inject a little excitement into your hot-weather lineup.
Couture Week is always more elaborate and decadent than the other fashion weeks when it comes to the fashion both on and off the runway, so we’ve decided to double down on the looks we’d genuinely be able to imitate or be inspired from IRL. From the two most unusual trending colors the front row are backing (although, there’s no sign of a letup from beige) to the little accessory switches that appear to be making all the difference, here’s what’s going to be in in no time at all.
Pink has been popular in fashion circles for a long time now, but a specific shade is bubbling up at the moment. Worn in one block, like Elena Perminova here, can be rather striking.
But it also looks cool mixed with other power pastels, as with Tiffany Hsu’s retro suit and open-collared shirt here.
Salmon pink is strangely good with black accessories—not something that can be said for all pretty, light colors.
Double up and wear a matching salmon skirt suit. You’ll be checking off next season’s trends too.
Why not match your eyewear to the colors of your outfit?
Vintage-style frames, complete with tinted lenses, are a subtle way to get your personality across.
And they make your world look like a 1970s movie, which is no bad thing.
Square-toe sandals, boots, and pumps have been coming to the fore, but this week has confirmed them as the shoe style to be wearing.
From Bottega Veneta to Acne Studios, quite a few designer pairs are catching on.
Square-toe mules (like Wandler’s super-popular iteration) are also proving to be a hit.
Sorry, biker jackets. Blazers are still very much de rigueur. And they’re literally bigger than ever.
Worn as part of a trouser suit or not, the silhouettes are jumbo.
But can easily be controlled by cinching in a waist.
Don’t be afraid of jumbo proportions—just balance out with heels.
Or wear a longline jacket with a very short skirt á la Pernille Teisbaek.
The fashion crowd are eschewing the obvious summer prints like gingham and florals in favor of more unexpected patterns.
So we’ve been seeing vintage etchings, Wedgewood-style motifs, wood prints, and much more across the pavements of Paris.
That includes wearing traditionally wintry patterns—like checks—on hot, hot days.
Mesh tops are particularly ripe bases for this burgeoning trend.
Salmon pink has competition in the form of the yellow spectrum. From golden satins to butter-yellow crêpes, last summer’s favorite color continues.
Yellow always works well with white accessories.
María Bernad’s unbuttoned shirt styling trick is something we predicted would go mainstream.
When the women of Couture aren’t wearing one of the two power pastels featured above, the mood is still very much about neutral colors (black, beige, cream, white) worn in smart, pared-back separates.
Adding a little maximalism to a minimalist look can be done easily with a chain belt.
Sneakers instantly help make short hemlines look more casual.
We’re still not done with wearing beige tones head to toe.

ZARA:What to Stop Wearing So Your Spring Outfits Turn Into Summer Looks

Are you a planner? A meticulous list-maker? A girl who likes to know what’s missing in her wardrobe before she buys anything? Aha! This story is going to be your jam. If you’re already thinking about how your spring wardrobe will segue into your summer one, we’re on the same page. Outside of the obvious reasons (rooftop bars, sunbathing, rosé, alfresco dining, everyone’s generally improved mood), summer is my favorite time of the year because I think it’s the easiest season for getting dressed. Less layering is required (always a plus when you’re 5’1” and curvaceous), and there’s always far less consideration for the blasted weather. There will be many stretches of time across the summer when throwing on a pretty dress and sliding into your favorite sandals (right now, that’s Tevas) is as much effort as needed to look tip-top.The foundations of what you’ll wear when it’s warmer are already in place—there’s no need to ditch everything each time one of the new seasons comes around. It’s more of a case of reconfiguring what’s already in your closet and putting a few pieces on ice for when a colder day comes along. The same rules apply each and every summer, so there’s also no huge pressure to buy anything new. All of the below suggestions will undoubtedly lie within your catalog at home. Should you want to invest in any summery newness, I’ve added in some choice shopping picks that will support your spring-to-summer fashion transition. Keep scrolling…With the unpredictable weather, you’ll still want to have some closed-toe shoes on standby (and you’ll probably still wear sneakers throughout the summer), but that moment when sandals become a legitimate and not entirely insane choice of a morning is a great one.You can easily wear the same spring outfit—see Loulou and her passion for suits—but with the baton being passed to some sandals, you have a summer-ready ensemble. It’s a no-brainer.Spring and jackets are like peanut butter and jelly—a beautiful combo that should never be questioned. But for all of those outfits where you sling on a blazer, denim, safari, or any other chosen style of jacket, we’re pretty sure it’s safe to sidestep them come summertime…That being said, you may still want to have your arms covered up if the weather is inclement or you don’t want to flash too much skin.

ZARA:How to Tuck Your Shirt Like a Street Style Pro

Like any decent styling trick, the art of tucking in your shirt is easy to learn yet will elevate your look to chic new heights. But not all the ways to tuck in your shirt are made equally, and we would argue that there’s a time and a place for each style. Allow us to explain.Heading to an important meeting or need to make a winning first impression? The full tuck is your fail-safe way to pull your look together and create a clean ensemble. Or maybe you want to cozy up in the perfect knit? Try the half tuck to add just the right amount of waist-defining shape. There’s also an in-between style: the front tuck, or French tuck, as Queer Eye’s Tan France calls it. However you choose to tuck your shirt in, read on to see how street style stars do it and become a bona fide expert in no time. Plus, shop the tops you need to re-create the looks.Create a cool, deliberately undone look with the half tuck, a favorite among the street style set.

ZARA:The Summer Dress You Should Never Wear to Work

Dressing for the office when it’s really hot outside is always a challenge, as you question what is and isn’t appropriate for the workplace. A little while back, we turned our co-founder Hillary Kerr’s unparalleled advice into a story on the number one bra “rule” that should be applied while dressing for the office. “I’ve always felt that if an outfit requires a ‘stunt bra’—meaning strapless, one-shoulder, or whatever—it probably isn’t the best choice for the office. It’s a boring rule of thumb, but I think it’s important to err on the side of professionalism versus the ultimate expression of your personal style—at least when you’re at work,” says Kerr.We know what you’re thinking—what about the off-the-shoulder trend? Here at Who What Wear HQ, wearing off-the-shoulder anything is a huge no. While we all clearly love to wear the fun summer style on the weekends, according to Kerr’s go-to bra rule, it simply is not appropriate for the office. Sadly (and obviously), that means no off-the-shoulder dresses, which are basically the most popular dress style of the summer—we know! But don’t stress out too much, because we’ve rounded up the best summer dresses that are 100% work-appropriate. In our book, that means midi length, shoulder coverage, and no plunging necklines. Ready to shop?Go on to see and shop dresses that are appropriate for the office during the summer.Alexa Chung’s T-shirt–and–white boots combination is extremely fashion girl–approved.

ZARA:Celebs Are Into These $84 Pants—and I Am Too

Up-and-coming Australian label I.Am.Gia popped onto my radar last year. To be honest, it was pretty hard to not notice it. Celebs like Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, and Kaia Gerber (and many more) have all been snapped wearing pieces from the brand on repeat. But perhaps what is most noteworthy about I.Am.Gia are the prices—everything retails for under $300. Its teddy bear coats, pastel plaid crop tops, and boiler suits are all over Instagram, but it’s the brand’s pants that you’ll spot on every celeb. Especially its Cobain style—a roomy trouser strung with a chain detail—that’s a nod to ’90s grunge.I couldn’t resist trying pieces from the brand for myself, so I ordered the Cobain pants in khaki as well as the high-waisted Mira pant in a black and white stripe—each priced at just $84. I’ll admit right away that I’m a huge fan, and throwing them on instantly made me feel like I was part of a cool style tribe. And they work so well with my wardrobe because they’re so versatile. Styled with a pair of combat boots, they can tap into the ’90s skater girl grunge thing that’s happening at the moment. But, on the other hand, add a sleek turtleneck and a pair of Chanel slingback heels and it’s an outfit that feels fashion-forward and cool but still office-appropriate. This is a label I’ll be wearing again and again.Here, I’m wearing the Cobain pants during Paris Fashion Week—styled with a simple turtleneck, hoop earrings, and Chanel slingback heels.

ZARA:Our Editors Are Proposing a Temporary Ban on These 7 Trends

The arrival of a new season typically signals a fresh set of trends to try out and a batch of older trends to let go. This spring, our editors are test-driving new pieces that span from ’90s-esque strappy sandals to pastel-hued trench coats all the way to baroque pearl earrings. There’s something for every type of personal style, whether you consider yourself a true blue minimalist or skew toward a more bohemian aesthetic. In other words, the shopping below is akin to a fashion playground. That being said, there also happens to be a list of trends we’re pressing pause on for the moment. A temporary ban, if you will. If you’re curious to find out which seven pieces we won’t be wearing again anytime soon, scroll down to hear from our editors (and find out what they’ll be wearing instead).”With summer approaching (well, eventually), I think it’s time to put away the black leather trench coats that were so popular earlier this year. Instead, I’m investing in a more seasonally appropriate white cotton shacket.” — Allyson Payer”I’m putting a hold on the neon trend. I found that when it first started to bubble, I was too scared to try it, and that hasn’t changed now that spring has finally rolled around. Instead, I’m leaning into big spring blazers as my transitional jacket of choice. I find that they can make any dress or pair of jeans look instantly cooler.” — Lauren Eggersten”I’ve recently noticed a sudden slew of influencers styling knee-high socks with all different types of shoes and shorts or skirts. While they seem to be able to pull it off, I definitely couldn’t, so I’m going to have to do a hard pass on that one. Instead, I’ll just let some of spring shoe trends like strappy, barely there heels, and sporty sandals do the talking in my outfits.” — Nicole Eshaghpour”I’m officially ready to retire my tiny sunglasses. (Mindy Kaling was onto something). I’ll be replacing them with oversize sunnies so I can conceal my under-eye bags in style! I’m particularly loving the shield styles that are everywhere right now.” — Judith Jones”I’m ready to let the super-chunky white ‘dad’ sneaker go. I do love the boldness of an ‘I’m here to be noticed’ shoe, though; I’ll just be getting my kicks (see what I did there?) with Teva-meets-Birkenstock-on-steroids sandals.” — Kat Collings”I’m pressing pause on coin necklaces right now. Instead, I’m adding in pearl jewelry—especially imperfect, baroque pearls that exude character.” — Kristen Nichols

ZARA:10 Items French Girls Prioritize Over Everything Else

You may think you know all the fashion essentials a French girl’s wardrobe relies on, but there’s an outside chance you don’t. Why? It can be all too easy to pigeonhole a nation’s “uniform” when it’s commonly referenced, so we wanted to go back to basics and revisit the concept. What is the actual concise list of items that the world’s chicest women follow?Maje’s creative director, Judith Milgrom, was on board to enlighten us on the mystical ways of a French girl’s edit. Her brand has just launched a denim capsule collection (and it has all the patchworked pieces you’ll want right now), but what are the staple jeans Parisians wear on repeat? And what do they wear them with? Questions, questions. Judith has the answers. Keep reading to find out about the 10 French fashion essentials everyone should consider.Of course, we’re not talking about any ordinary blazer here. Milgrom explains: “This can be from a menswear brand to wear to work with a man’s shirt and high-waisted fitted dark jeans—French girls have many dark blue or black versions. I’m currently styling my jacket with a Gucci belt.””If you need to walk, flat sandals are so practical. They can also update an evening look, such as a long dress so that it is both sophisticated and cool,” says Milgrom.While French girls have jeans in a host of different washes, more than anything right now, it’s about the silhouette rather than the finish. She’s prioritizing a tailored cut: “They go with everything. You can go to work and then just change your top—a lingerie-inspired Caraco or a sequinned top—add high-heeled sandals, and you’re ready to party,” Milgrom tells us.We’ve often noticed French girls belting supersized sweaters over everything from skinny jeans to floral skirts, but now we know where they buy them. Milgrom recommends Uniqlo or Pringle of Scotland, and she’ll employ one “to stay cozy on a weekend, paired with flared jeans or cashmere jogging pants. I have a collection of different colors, and I usually wear light or bright colors, rather than black.””It can be monochrome or a print, and I have many sleeveless versions that I love to style them with a belt, large or very thin high heels and my leopard coat,” says Milgrom.French girls are keen on their classic leather jackets, Milgrom confirms: “The biker is a classic piece. I pair it with a long dress to give it a more urban and modern look. And also to go to work with a pair of jeans and a light cashmere sweater.”The rule here? There are no rules, aside from the fact that the shoes need to be black and have stiletto heels. “You can go from classic ones to more daring styles such as conical heels,” suggests Milgrom.Trust a French girl to know the best place to buy tailored shirts that fit perfectly. Milgrom highlighted the brand Charvet: “Parisian girls are effortless and love to dress in their boyfriend’s essentials such as a shirt or a sweater worn a bit oversize.”Now here’s the item that really surprised us. We always imagined leopard-print cover-ups to be more of a British signature. Milgrom set the record straight: “It’s a classic piece in every Parisian girl’s wardrobe. We wear it as a part of a totally black look; it’s so easy. A black sweater, black pants or black jeans and flat shoes to go to work with or a little black dress and high heels to go out in the evening. Usually, when I’m wearing my leopard coat, I’m not wearing makeup; this is my advice: Stay natural or just put on some red lipstick, and that’s it.”So it’s plain to see that French girls rely heavily upon outerwear. We probably all have a trench coat somewhere, but Milgrom explains the specifics for her nation’s chicest ladies: “It can be black or beige, always belted, collar up,” she says. “It’s effortless and convenient to cycle to work when you’re wearing trousers. It’s a great transitional piece. You can wear it with a warm sweater and a big, knitted scarf for winter, or with just a shift underneath when the weather starts to get warmer.”

ZARA:I’m 57, and These Are the 3 Trends I Will and Won’t Wear

Janet Gunn is the inspiring influencer behind The Grateful Gardenia. Originally from Texas, the 57-year-old style guru is now settled in Los Angeles with her husband, son, and dog named Buster. She’s worked as a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, flight attendant, actor, jewelry designer, and beyond—in other words, she has a ton of experience and an equally cool personal style to match.

For more of her looks, don’t miss her Instagram account, @janetgunngratefulgardenia.After turning 50, as always, I wanted to dress stylishly, with a little bit of edge, but chic. Now that I’m 57, comfort is at the top of my list. I don’t like to think too much about what to put on. I look for timeless pieces that work for my on-the-go lifestyle and love mixing them with a few trendy pieces, that reflect my own personal style. If it makes you feel fabulous, wear it!I need to have the freedom to move about, and I want to be able to breathe! When I need perfect black pants, I go to my uniform—Franne Golde classic pants. Being petite and wanting a perfectly proportioned pants, I approached Franne in 2018, and together we came up with a Petite Capsule Collection. Wearing these structured but stretchy pants make me feel and look great, and yes, there’s a pair for almost every size and shape, not just petite!Oh, how I love this trend. This look is ageless to me. Great silks are usually pretty timeless, and you’re mixing comfort with style. It’s chic with a dash of confidence mixed in. I like to wear my pajama top and pair it with cropped jeans and a blazer, or pajama bottoms paired with a simple white top, T-shirt, and mules.I often wear sneakers, and I do prefer Golden Goose, but I’ll pass on the large clunky soles. It’s just too heavy for my body type. Trends aren’t for everyone. Be the trend!This is an essential piece for my wardrobe and a quick fix to update your simple jeans and T-shirt favorites. I love the modern, edgy look these long coats give. My favorites right now are from RtA and Alice & Olivia, and I’ll wear them with almost any shoe style.They are seasonal and fun for a vacay, but not worth the splurging! I tend to go for a functional yet elegant style when it comes to purses. Investing in a quality purse means great materials, beautiful details, and excellent craftsmanship you won’t find in mass-produced bags. And there’s nothing like a great accessory. It can make even the simplest outfit pop!To me, this is a forever trend! So I’ll have more of that, please. I don’t think leopard print has ever not hung in my closet or rested on my shelves, which is exactly why I made sure to add a leopard top to my petite capsule collection. I always picture Diane von Furstenberg when I think of leopard, and she’s truly a fearless fashion female in my eyes.

ZARA:5 Trends to Not Wear With Jeans

We love jeans. Jeans are our friends. They give us endless outfit ideas when our inspiration is running dry, and they even translate to our wardrobes year-round. They’re a true-blue closet staple. However, there are certain trends that jeans just don’t jive with as well as others. Chalk it up to its laid-back associations, but sometimes denim just doesn’t do the trick, which is why it’s helpful to consider the full range of options in front of you.This spring, you may have a trend or two (or seven) that you’re eyeballing. However, investing in a trend is only the first step because as we all know, the hardest part is tackling the styling aspect. This is where today’s denim focus comes into play. While reaching for the closest pair of crop-flare jeans may feel like the best option when test-driving your trend of choice, sometimes it’s worth brainstorming a bit further. Ahead, we’ve highlighted a small pool of pieces that look wonderful paired with non-denim accouterments. Scroll down to find out what they are and to shop the trends.If you’ve yet to try the belt-bag (aka fancy-fanny-pack) trend, rest assured because it’s not too late. Unfortunately, fastening the strap inside of your jean loops might prove too fussy. Instead, layer it over an easy spring dress for a cool look that also happens to be hands-free.Because the designer-flip-flop trend is already quite casual, teaming it with a pair of jeans might end up skewing super laid-back. For a more balanced look, simply wear them with a pair of playful trousers.The polo-shirt trend is going to be huge this spring, and if you’re ready to start wearing the preppy piece, opt out of styling it with jeans and go for an unexpected combination, like an embellished skirt.

ZARA:My Style Is Simple, and These Are the Street Style Looks I’m About to Copy

I have said it before, but I’ll say it again: My style is simple, but I like to think that doesn’t equate to boring. I still love statement pieces and a wide range of brands, and I even surprise myself from time to time with an out-there outfit idea, but when it comes to my day-to-day look, I like to keep it pretty minimal and classic. It’s funny, though, as it relates to today’s story, because those two adjectives aren’t exactly what come to mind when you think of street style, which, with each new season becomes more and more exaggerated, out-there, and over the top. However, I’ve realized that if you look closely enough, there are still a handful of showgoers who skip the many, many statement pieces and deliver simply good outfits composed mostly of basics. Don’t believe me? Just keep scrolling to see (and shop) nine street style outfits that even those with minimal style won’t be able to help but love.Simply tuck a sweater into high-waisted jeans and pair with boots in the same color family. The tonal effect makes a big impact.Style an oversize blazer with tights and your go-to ankle boots.Wear a pair of fun statement pants with a classic long coat so just the bottom peers out.Layer a white coat (or spring-ready vest) over any all-black outfit for an easy-yet-impactful look.It doesn’t get more timeless than a blazer, skinny jeans, and pumps—especially if they’re Manolos.Breathe new life into a tracksuit by pairing it with ankle boots and a camel coat.Style your favorite midi skirt with a white blouse and statement accessories such as layered necklaces, a bold belt, and/or animal-print ankle boots. While you may have to ditch the coat part now that spring is here, the idea behind this look still stands: white T-shirt, white jeans, white flats, and a pop of color in the form of a bag. Give your favorite suit set a spring-ready feel by styling it with strappy sandals.
