Leave it to Paris Fashion Week to bring us some of the juiciest trends yet. Saint Laurent presented the club-goer's dream wardrobe with '80s mini-dresses in a disco-ball color palette, while Lanvin spoiled us with romantic, gauzy ruffles; Chanel sent us on a Barbarella-meets-the-Left-Bank fantasy, while Givenchy dished out the richest all-red ensembles we've ever seen. And, of course, the City of Light herself was dressed to the nines: brands like Louis Vuitton set up shop in the Louvre's sculpture garden for a chic evening défilé, while Fenty x Puma took over the newly renovated National Library (shout-out to Riri's detention slip invites, btw). 

Here are 4 trends from Paris Fashion Week that we can't wait to try: 

Caped ladies conquered the Parisian runways this year, and we can't help but wonder if the trend is reflective of some kind of feminist, wonder-woman sentiment (in the same spirit of brands like Ashish and Prabal Gurung), or if its just because we like to dramatically enter and exit rooms like some hasty, glam-Dracula with our capes flying out around us. Whatever the reason, we can't wait to get our hands on designs from brands like Chloé, Louis Vuitton and Vera Wang.

We've officially graduated from the Normcore days of baseball caps and visors for hats that steal the show with their texture and volume. There was really something for everyone: Marc Jacobs surprised us with chunky knitted hats that had a retro, '70s feel, Miu Miu gave us brightly collared, furry cossack helmets and Rick Owens sent out minimalist headgear that would make a Whirling Dervish drool.

Finally, a Fashion Week beauty trend we can get behind! Unlike painfully precise cat eyes or ombre eyeshadow looks, designers proposed a much quicker way to play with makeup by focusing on the underbrow region. Make like Maison Margiela with a paint-by-numbers style, or copy Karl's models and their space-age Edie Sedgwick lids. We're especially into Mugler's take on the trend, which consisted of nothing more than a bold line of black under the brow.

We will never not say yes to gold, especially when it's pinned to our bosom or casually chilling on the hem of our sleeve. The abundance of gilded accents on the runways this season were a reminder of why Paris reigns supreme as the Queen of Luxury. Haider Ackermann upgraded his black pieces with slivers of gold, while Vera Wang gave us military-esque accents and molten gowns.
