While Victoria Beckham struts around in strapless mini dresses on freezing New York nights, the Paris fashion set have a more practical dress sense.
Mini dresses at the peak of a European winter is acceptable, provided, that one layers to the extent that the mini acts more like an under garment than the focus peice. This is one thing that the Paris fashion set know very well. Thick woollen coats, opaque stockings, killer boots and loose layering were all apart of the Parisian uniform.
However, the main focus was on scarfs. Fur, pashmina, cashmere and chunky woollen scarfs were seen on almost every fashion week bellwether. When it comes to making the practical look cool, you can always count on the women that tot around Paris.
