Paris Street Style – Some Thoughts

We are starting to get a few customers shopping for clothes in preparation for a Spring trip to Paris.

I ran across a great article on ParisInsidersGuide.com that sums up perfectly the right mindset for dressing in the City of Light:

“When you’re in Paris, girls, you need to step it up a notch while turning down the volume.

Stepping it up a notch means means dressing like a woman and not a teenage boy. Please, no hoodies, khaki man pants, white running shoes, shirts with logos, fleece, sportswear, yoga pants, outerwear meant for hiking, sweat shirt, sweat pants, patteren old-lady acrylic sweaters, matching leisure pants and jackets, poor quality footwear….you get the drift.

Turning down the volume means dressing simply but beautifully. Women in Paris know what looks good on them and how to work their best assets. Its not fancy clothes with glitter and glam – Paris fashion at its best is always understated.”

To look this good in Paris  or at home, consider pulling together your spring wardrobe with these basics:

Great jeans -skinny dark wash or colored
A simple basic top – black, navy white
Tailored Blazer
Black boots or colorful flats
Great Sunglasses
