Sara Sampaio’s Paris Fashion Week wardrobe was full of vibrant and glamorous pieces that we would be thrilled to get our hands on. And while we probably won’t be acquiring any of her stunning outfits for ourselves anytime soon, there were a few looks that were the perfect balance of high-fashion and achievable—outfits that we can definitely take inspiration from as we seek out our own fall fashion finds.

En route to the Zimmermann fashion show on Oct. 2, Sampaio announced the return of the fall blazer dress, the combination of business and glam that never seems to go out of style. Her take on the look featured a lengthy black blazer with a plunging V-neck neckline and black buttons. She paired the mini with black slingback heels and cat-eye sunglasses. The outfit needed just a touch of color to really be a statement-maker, which Sampaio added with her chosen accessories: oversized gold earrings, a handful of gold rings, and a simple gold chain necklace.

“Arriving to @zimmermann 😎😎 🎥 @moritzscholzstudios,” she captioned a reel that she shared on her Instagram from the event, crediting her videographer for the clips that captured her strutting through the Parisian streets. 

Sampaio’s look was the definition of simple elegance, turning the business glam look into the perfect fashion show style. But it was also the ideal inspiration for a fall night-out. She proved that the blazer dress can never really go out of style, and now is the season to don your best and head out.
