Style Hunter's Happiest 32 Outfits From Paris Fashion Week!

05 March 2013 by

Style Hunter has never seen a Paris Fashion Week quite like it. Even in the face of adverse weather, the ‘black crows’ (as Suzy Menkes has dubbed them) and super-chic razor-sharp-but-understated dressers that Paris is famed for seem to have disappeared into thin air.

It would have been all too easy to wrap up in a black coat, black jeans and black ankle boots, but these front row fashion warriors were on a mission to look bold and stylistically adventurous. Out with the Alt, in with the alternative!   

Massive horreur! The usual serious crowds appeared ecstatically happy. Smiles were everywhere, the good feelings were infectious. So in honour of such light hearted street-snapping moments, we’ve selected our top 32 looks that not only have a bit of inspirational spring style in each step, but put a big ol’ smile across our faces, too. Enjoy!
