Let Paris Fashion Week’s show-goers be your guide to the new trends and tricks for the new season. 

Last week brought fashion month to a close, signalling the end of the international shows that span four cities and countless shows (no really, we have lost track). The big finale took place in Paris, where show attendees stepped into sixth gear when it came to their wardrobes.

The result? Street style that teaches us how to embrace brown as the colour of the season, and the new tips and tricks of winter layering.

In short, Paris has delivered on all our fashion inspiration for the coming season. 

Check it out:

Brown and blue might be our favourite autumnal colour combination to date. 

Recycle your summer dresses by adding in a roll neck and knee-high boots. 

Dress up your low-key tonal pieces with statement accessories, like the crystal earrings seen above. 

Cowboy boots remain this season’s big footwear trend, so be sure to invest in a classic short style now. 

The more clashing prints, the better. 

Jumpers have moved from the shoulders to across the body, and the latest styling hack (according to PFW) is around the neck.  

White leather boots are replacing black leather boots as your outfit’s finishing touch. 

Make your formalwear go further by pairing your work skirts with dad-like anoraks and trainers. 

Adding a neat bum bag to your look will immediately take it into an elevated fashion sphere. 

Animal print was all the rage over the summer and will remain a key print in your autumn wardrobe too. Branch out from leopard and embrace snakeskin as your print for the new season. 

Just because the evenings are getting dark faster doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to. Take a layering lesson from this all-white look. 

Maximalism is real, so be sure to wear all the accessories you want (and wear them all at once, too). 

If you are working one colour in a head-to-toe look, then be sure to play with proportions: it will make for a super chic offering. 

Take a typically feminine colour and make it cool with a button-up shirt and oversized tailoring. 

This is how to do grandad knits in 2018. 

Take an evening top and make it work for daytime by adding in a pair of relaxed trousers and a blazer. For mega s/s 2019 vibes headwear is essential. 

Layering lesson 101: blazer, shirt, dress, trousers and, to uncomplicate it all, throw in a pair of hiking boots. 

Take notes from this show-goer on how to do double denim the grown up way. 

Grey need not be boring. To keep yours feeling fresh, pair with a crisp white t-shirt and add in an unexpected element, like this oversized belt. 

If you are planning on dressing to a decade, be sure to commit head to toe. The Seventies never looked better. 

Update your classic autumn pieces, like this trench, with bright contrasting colours. 

Get ready to go western for autumn. High-waist mom jeans, tucked-in denim shirt and knee-high cowboy boots are all the rage. 

With the weather unable to make up its mind whether we are in summer or autumn, opt for a chic slide to finish off your trouser suit. When it gets particularly chilly add in a sock and keep the slide. 

Don’t be rid of your summer wardrobe entirely. Instead, make it work for the new season by layering a fitted roll neck under your shirt and swapping in white ankle boots instead of flip flops. 

Add in elements of practicality to your autumn wardrobe: it will make for a sporty take on your everyday dressing. 

Brown was undoubtedly the colour of the season, so embrace it entirely and go head-to-toe.
