So you’re going to Paris… Time to start thinking about what to wear in Paris. While Paris is a stylish place, it isn’t that hard to keep up with the French if you think minimalist, classic, basic, quality over quantity. A pair of skinny pants, ankle boots, plain white shirt, leather jacket, and high quality pair of sunglasses will have you blending right in. Below I’ve mixed up some ideas for you.
Gucci Aviator Sunglasses / Damero Retro Cross-Body Bag / Retro Road Trip Hat / Have to Tri These Earrings / A Work of Heart Top / Tank You Kindly Top / Caslon Knit Blazer / Seven For All Mankind Mid-Rise Skinny Jean / Karen Kane A-Line Dress / Leandra Knit Short / Clarks Spye Belle Bootie
Bags – Satchel-style purses are the thing, they are simple, intelligent-looking, classic.
Shirts – No need to splurge here as long as your accessories are high quality. Think H&M shirt, Gucci sunglasses. If you’re looking for a high quality basic tee, look at Krochet Kids’ Standard Tee; it’s high quality and ethical.
Jackets – A smart cardigan, classic trench, sleek blazer, or simple leather jacket will do here. I haven’t pictured one here, but you’ll want a rain jacket in the summer, July is actually one of the wettest seasons. Also, the weather is generally fairly cool (averaging around 65 degrees Fahrenheit) and balmy that time of year.
Pants – Think skinny. A good trouser will also do. I threw in the knit shorts, because they are fun and edgy but fit in with the other classic pieces. It doesn’t hurt to be a little fashion forward in Paris.
Shoes – Low-heeled ankle boots are big in Paris, and suitable for most activities in most seasons. A little sneaker will also fit right in, so long as it is cute and not too bulky.
Dress – Choose a dress you can wear alone with sneakers, or with a nice jacket, necklace, and heeled booties. As usual, the pieces pictured above could be worn in any combination, perfect for remixing and getting lots of outfits and not-too-much luggage.
Hair – Leave your hair a little rumpled and natural. This trend is perfect for the weary traveler, just take a few minutes to make your effortless-looking messy hair look a teeny bit intentional.
Makeup – Neutral face (like you aren’t wearing any at all—or just don’t wear any). Red lip. All you need in Paris is your wanderlust and your lipstick.
Go in style,
