These are the style lessons we took away from the street style stars at the Rick Owens show at Paris Fashion Week:

  1. Symmetry is overrated.
  2. Jaden is not the only one that can rock a skirt.
  3. Couples that slay together stay together.
  4. The socks and sliders trend is not going anywhere.
  5. Sometimes you just need one standout item like killer shades to standout.
  6. Floral prints are the perfect summer companion.
  7. The Basotho blanket print on shirts is on trend.
  8. Sometimes all you need to do is stick to your roots and you will stand out.
  9. Ladies, take a leaf from the men’s fashion bible and match your belt to your shoes.
  10. When in doubt, wear your tattoos. – Nick Wooster
