What to wear in Paris

What to Wear in Paris

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

FRAME – Le Beau cropped distressed boyfriend jeans

Pleated Bermuda shorts

Mango – Pleated Bermuda shorts

Buttoned Midi Skirt

& 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:

Linen Puff Sleeve Midi Dress

& Other Stories – Linen Puff Sleeve Midi Dress

Maxi Dress

Marie France Van Damme – Rose wrap-effect metallic fil coupé silk-blend chiffon maxi dress

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:

Silk Georgette Necktie Blouse

Ralph Lauren – Silk Georgette Necktie Blouse

lemon shirt

Tommy Hilfiger – Danee Tunic Blouse

 

top

Sacai – Asymmetric paneled plissé-chiffon and cotton top

 

white ribbed tee

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:

linen blazer

Double-breasted linen suit blazer

denim jacket

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:

bag

Jacquemus – Le Panier Soleil raffia tote

 

cross body bag

Mango – Flap cross-body mini bag

 

shoes

BY FAR – Tanya patent-leather mules

Sandals1

Now your set… you’ve got a complete capsule wardrobe for your trip to Paris – sophisticated and chic, yet wonderfully feminine.
