What Parisian Girls Actually Wear? 7 Ultimate Wardrobe Pieces

You know for certain that what is fashionable today will look outdated tomorrow…  But who can totally escape from fashion trends? They influence the way we get dressed every season and some of them are here to stay for long.

The 7 clothing « must-haves » I focus on in this post were adopted since few years and are really part of the Parisian wardrobes now.

1/ The high waisted pants

Sorry for the low waist pants that show up our extra pounds and our bellies… this is it! High waisted pants are coming back from the 80’s! Jeans or classic cut pants, tight with a belt or not, they nicely underline our hips and our bottoms. And we like it!

How to wear it the Parisian way? Wear your tee or your sweater inside the pants.

They also aren’t as skinny as they were before, wider cuts as boyfriend, flare and boot cuts are coming back.

2/ The romantic something

Usually flower prints, they come in fluid fabrics and vintage-like cuts….Or it can be Victorian style dresses or blouses… It’s a strong trend seen everywhere in Parisian streets.

How to wear it the Parisian way? Add a pair of low-boots or urban sneakers. You want to look fresh and romantic but not as if you were one of the Brontë sisters…

3/  The checked prints

These elegant and noble patterns so widely used among kings and princes are to embrace all Parisian women this winter and the next ones. You’ll see it on jacket and coats of course but also on dresses, jumpsuit pants, tops…

How to wear it the Parisian way? Without taking it too seriously… Mix it with jeans, vivid colors, a fun tee or boots.

4/ The bold color shoes

It could be a pair of red low boots, glitter loafers or panther prints derbies… The intention is to twist them with a neutral colors outfit. You know this little-something that’ll add all the difference…

How to wear it the Parisian way? In avoiding to mix them with other vibrant colors.

5/ The chunky knit sweater

Comfortable and cozy, it gives this relaxed and nonchalant attitude that Parisian love above all.

How to wear it the Parisian way? Twist it with a business skirt or pants. Or mix it with something that comes in a fluid fabric.

6/ The jumpsuit pants

And specially the ones worn by the building workmen, the mechanics or the painters. Parisians love clothes that have a background, clothing that have come from certain traditions, like the sporting or the military world. And more recently the workplace environment.

How to wear it the Parisian way? Add a touch of sophistication: heels, goldy or silver jewelery, a nice belt…

7/ The vinyl and the fake-fur

Funny, costless and animal cruelty-free, clothes that come in vinyl or in fake-fur are very popular among Parisian, declined in all kind of colors and shapes.

How to wear it the Parisian way? As it’s a powerful piece of wardrobe, stay prudent mixing it with rather classical clothes.
