Are you planning your trip to the city of love, and considering what to wear in Paris? Fear not – as today we have Jennifer Jones Styling with us to make sure you look and feel effortlessly chic during your stay.
When packing your suitcase, you not only want to make sure you have enough outfits, you also want outfits that ooze the Parisienne style and culture.
Here are the steps I recommend taking to ensure you nail the perfect summer capsule wardrobe for your getaway, including some hidden gems that are ready and waiting for you to snap them up.
To begin with, choose two or three timeless bottoms. Parisienne style is all about quality and timeless elegance so choose just a few staple pieces that fit this perfectly. Here are my top three choices that provide variety, comfort but most importantly a base for effortless styling:
FRAME – Le Beau cropped distressed boyfriend jeans
Mango – Pleated Bermuda shorts
& Other Stories – Buttoned Midi Skirt
Then include some femininity with a few elegant dresses that will see you through those day-to-night dates. Think silky or structured textures with ruffles and statement sleeves:
& Other Stories – Linen Puff Sleeve Midi Dress
Marie France Van Damme – Rose wrap-effect metallic fil coupé silk-blend chiffon maxi dress
Zara – Textured dress with ruffle trims
Add a variety of go-to tops, but make sure you have a mixture of smart and casual looks so you can easily dress your staple items up or down. And always opt for expensive looking fabrics so even on a casual day, you still look chic:
Ralph Lauren – Silk Georgette Necktie Blouse
Tommy Hilfiger – Danee Tunic Blouse
Sacai – Asymmetric paneled plissé-chiffon and cotton top
Ninety Percent – Ribbed stretch-organic cotton-jersey T-shirt
Don’t forget to include a lightweight jacket that you can throw on with everything. Keep the colour neutral so that it blends well with all your other pieces:
Double-breasted linen suit blazer
LOEWE – Cropped denim jacket
Now for your accessories… we want to make sure we’ve got all scenarios from exploring the most iconic attractions to enjoying soaking up the ambience at night. Pick comfortable flats for the day and something more strappy for the evenings. Again, keep these neutral so you can pair them with everything:
Jacquemus – Le Panier Soleil raffia tote
Mango – Flap cross-body mini bag
BY FAR – Tanya patent-leather mules
& Other Stores – Duo Strap Leather Sandals
Monica Vinader – Marie Mini Pendant Charm Necklace Set
Now your set… you’ve got a complete capsule wardrobe for your trip to Paris – sophisticated and chic, yet wonderfully feminine.
