The recently concluded Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2016-2017 has plenty of inspiration for India. 

Your search for the holy grail of high street fashion ends here.

The Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2016-2017 held in Paris showcased an array of luxe styles that will keep you a step ahead in the fashion game.

From flowy silhouettes and jazzy prints to cool colour tones, it had all.

Presenting 10 eye-catching styles that dominated the runway this season.

Take a look.

1. Dramatic drapes

Bella Hadid

2. Volume sleeves

IMAGE: Want to enrich the look of your outfit with simple lines? Opt for volume sleeves! You can either go for a flared off-shoulder top over embroidered trousers by Alexis Mabille (on the left) or dress up in a puffed sleeve printed mini by Giambattista Valli. Photograph: (left) Gonzalo Fuentes/Reuters (right) Kind Courtesy Giambattista Valli/Instagram

3. Motif magic

4. Metallic mania

IMAGE: Designers also channeled the value of precious metals through their creations. The outfits shone and shimmered as models sashayed down the ramp. In the one above, a model wowed the audience in a rose gold cut-out layered gown by J Mendel paired with Roman boots. Photograph: Kind Courtesy J. Mendel/Instagram 

5. Sexy sheer

IMAGE: Sheer isn't a trend anymore. It's a wardrobe staple for many fashionistas. We liked how Valentino teamed a sheer maxi with a square jacquard coat (left) and Giambattista Valli added cute little prints and lace to his creation. Which one appeals you the most? Photograph: Kind Courtesy (left) Valentino/Instagram (rightGiambattista Valli/Instagram

6. Velvet... voila!

Cindy Bruna

Donned by one of the best dressed Victoria's Secret models Cindy Bruna, this purple hue one-shoulder gown with a waist belt by Elie Saab was most impressive. Photograph: Kind Courtesy Elie Saab/Instagram

7. Print power

8. Stay structured

IMAGE: We even found that designers pushed boundaries one step further and how. They created structured outfits that accentuate opulence. In the one above a model is seen wearing Atelier Versace, and we think, it's sensational and quite a masterpiece. Photograph: Gonzalo Fuentes/Reuters

9. Shine bright

IMAGE: Ensembles that will make you glow in the dark. What's your choice -- Japanese designer Yuima Nakazato's outfit that used innovative craftsmanship or Bertrand Guyon's shimmery floor-scraping gown with a plunging neckline? Photograph: Benoit Tessier/Reuters

10. Hats on!
