Back to school fashion trends

Mode Rentree

It's the excitement in Paris! Tradition obliges, despite the mask on the face, the return to school puts the spotlight on the trends of autumn-winter to follow. And this season, the fashion world will vibrate on contrasting notes. Sometimes energized, sometimes futuristic, the good student of the sape will dig at will in the locker room of the power girl or the duchess, in all-over or by touches.

Among his obsessions, we note the vibrant green , the long leather coat, the light fringes , the return of the color block or the velvet dress , so many opportunities to play chameleons. A fashionista for five fads, the challenge is considerable ... Zoom in on these trends easy to adopt, already passed from the catwalk to the street.

The color block comeback

We thought it was buried in the archives of design houses since 2011. Error! The color block , inspired this year by the highly vitamin-packed coolness of Danish fashionistas, is making a comeback. And this is probably the most exciting trend of the fall.

Gone are the old-fashioned associations of deep black and electric blue (no one wants to do this to themselves). It is now a question of marrying at the top and bottom of the silhouette colors that collide with panache: green against pink , purple with red , blue to stand up to orange … We dare them. combos that throw it away and we leave the gray, brown and black in the closet.

Long black leather coat

Never have we wanted so much to cast for a Matrix remake. Perfect for staying dry in the rain as well as going incognito, the long black leather coat is taking the lion's share this winter.

We love it to give ourselves the air of an investigator from the 90s and we leave it open to a bourgeois look or closed at the waist to reveal nothing. Be careful with the choice of shoes, because we will only see them: go for stylish sneakers or colorful ankle boots with high heels.

The Green mania

Green-washing is resisting on the podiums. A new green statement? Nay. Vibrant green is taking over the big winter pieces, starting with coats , blazers and long dresses designed by the sexiest designers of the moment.

We therefore replace the fuchsia of last year (although still present in the radars of the last fashion week ) by a resolutely feel good grass green , of those which give you a good look and go fishing when all goes the hell.

Light fringes

A little air of the Roaring Twenties is swinging fashion this season. Who would've believed that ? It seems that the most beautiful houses have come together to revive the jazz years with great reinforcements of long lampshade fringes, affixed everywhere on the dresses, skirts and accessories of the moment.

We of course break the disguise side by matching his retro piece with a preppy braided blazer , rock boots and a hairstyle in the wind like the mane flattened back.

The velvet dress

Morticia Addams has always been thought to be the most dangerously sensual vamp in cinema. That's good: its emblem, the velvet dress , is back to aristocratize the return to school.

Although very often spotted in black on the catwalks, there is also a general craze for its pink, blue or green version (cuckoo Scarlett O'Hara ). The rallying point? A long cut, exclusively. Despite everything, we allow ourselves the babydoll version in a short dress and wrap, easier to wear for those who have not planned to parade at the next MET gala .
