Sadly, another fashion month has come and gone. No longer are our Instagram feeds going to see an influx of bold silhouettes, candid street style pics and a wild Cardi B running around Paris as a masked floral explosion.

While we may not have all been in attendance at the lavish shows and after-parties which were spotted around New York, London, Paris and Milan this month (Yay, school!), there are some fashion takeaways that we, the students, can apply to elevate our own personal style.

After all, who says students in the library don’t want to watch you stunt, on a rainy day, after biking to school, for 30 minutes?

 

Hats Galore

 

Hats of all shapes and sizes are going to be the most flaunted accessory this spring. From exaggerated and avant garde silhouettes by Aalto International and Yohji Yamamoto, to elevated buckets hats as seen at Nanushka and Dior, designers topped off many looks using this tried-and-true accessory. 

 

Hot Tip: don’t want to bring a rain jacket or umbrella to school when it ~might~ or ~might not~ rain? Shove a bucket hat in your bag, and you’re good to go!

The Maddy Perez

 

Two-piece sets. That’s it. That’s the look. Matching sets are fail-proof, and were all over the runways this fashion season. Whether you’re more into a laid-back Canadian Tuxedo a la NYFW designer Sandy Liang, or channeling your inner Maddy Perez from Euphoria (see: Alessandra Rich), two-piece sets are going nowhere and on everyone. Never has it been easier to get dressed in the morning.

The Bigger the Better

 

Last but not least, sleeves. The renaissance variety. Designers delivered a large dose of dresses adorned with sleeves that graced models’ ears. Representing a new statement of power (BDE, anyone?) with a nod to the Medieval Era, as depicted at Marc Jacobs, Brock Collection and Alexander McQueen. However, if the sartorial choices of a renaissance woman scare you, Rosie Assoulin and Rejina Pyo presented more relaxed variations of this trend.
