Strong shoulders, check. Baggy trousers, check. Pantyhose, check. The '80s came alive on the Paris Fashion Week runways, but one thing the looks have in common, is the slight contemporary flair that they each exude.

From keyhole to back cutouts, this season is filled with different ways to flaunt some skin. At Paris Fashion Week, the cold shoulder trend gets anything but the cold shoulder treatment, as midi dresses are finished with little holes on the shoulder that give the covered-up ensemble that added interest.

Exaggerated shoulder silhouettes brought the perfect dose of drama to the runways this season. The puffier, the better.

Bring out your opera gloves this AW21, as the retro accessory is given a new lease of life. But instead of channeling old Hollywood glamour, designers want you to embrace the dark side by giving the trend an edgy twist.

There's more to it than meets the eye when it comes to the peekaboo fabric this AW21, as lace dresses come in a variety of intricate patterns that are in full view when contrasted against the skin.

These boots are made for walking flaunting. The autumn-winter must-haves come in metallic and in knee-high length this round, and they're best worn under midi dresses.

You can always count on belts to highlight your curves, but this season, designers want you to cinch it with thick corset belts that tune up the simplest of looks.

Dip your toes in the pastel waters with this shade of baby pink that was making waves on the runways. The ultra-light colour instantly adds a demure allure to any look.

Another colour to note? Yolk yellow—a slightly muted yellow interpretation that's surprisingly polished.

From Little Red Riding Hood to Grace Jones to pandemic fashion, regardless of the inspiration, the hoods are the trend to take note of for AW21.
