There are certain winter essentials that you will always find in a French wardrobe- and on every Parisian street. Now that you know where you can shop for your winter fashion, here are 5 styling tips that will help you put together a chic outfit inspired by Parisian style.
Invest in timeless pieces
The French are less likely to buy into fast-fashion and prefer making conscious fashion choices. They will usually invest in items that will last them longer and can be worn multiple times in different ways. In their winter wardrobe, you will often find timeless pieces in neutral colours such as black, navy blue, khaki, burgundy, grey, or beige.
Stick to classic prints
When it comes to wearing prints, take a less-is-more approach. You will often notice Parisians wearing monotone, neutral outfits when you explore the streets of Paris in winter. However, don’t say goodbye to prints yet! Parisian style usually incorporates classic prints such as plaid or tartan, checks, houndstooth and chevron.
Wear warm fabrics
While visiting Paris in winter is a magical experience, it tends to get extremely cold! But when it comes to dressing up for these chilly winters, comfort is never sacrificed for style. The Parisian winter wardrobe will always consist of the finest quality of cotton, Merino, Alpaca wool or cashmere, which will ensure you feel warm, while looking stylish at the same time!
Shoes you can strut in
The best way to explore Paris is by foot, and Parisians walk absolutely everywhere! How can they do this so effortlessly? Because comfortable boots are a winter staple of Parisian style! A great pair of ankle boots or knee-high boots in flats or block-heels, is an excellent footwear option and are the two main shoe styles that French women opt for during the season. Sneakers and leather pointed shoes in blacks and browns are the most typical footwear worn by men.
Layering is key!
You won’t survive Parisian winter without layering! The secret to staying warm during cold winter months is to layer your clothes. For women, start with a blouse, a button down, or a basic top, next add a cardigan or a sweater and then a coat. Pair it with skinny jeans or corduroy pants. Finish your look with a scarf. For men, wear a neutral button down shirt, a thin or thick sweater along with a structured coat, a leather jacket or a bomber, with a pair of chinos or jeans. Voilà, you’ve achieved the perfect winter look inspired by Parisian style!
