Our favourite thing about Paris Fashion Week (we just covered Dior!) is the diversity of what you can feast your eyes on – fashion-fantastic looks at Gucci, Mediterranean chic at Jacquemus or, surreal proportions at Comme des Garcon.

When in doubt about what to wear, the fun blouse is always well, fun to wear. But the rule of thumb? Wear it with jeans to take the print down a notch
