Parisian Summer Evenings

15 Jul

GirlSeeksShoe here.

So I just got back from an amazing week in Paris; just being a tourist and eating some delicious food etc. But one thing really jumped out at me. The native Parisians are so so stylish! Now, I’m not really surprised, we all know they have this reputation for being classy elegant people, I just hadn’t experienced it first-hand. Throughout the week I started to notice trends in the way they dressed, enabling me to dissect their style pour toi! If you want to dress like a sophisticated Parisian, here are some key elements to their summer look.

Loose blouses and shirts:

Often paired with a short black pencil skirt, bare legs and ballet flats, I saw loose blouses and shirts worn in a myriad of ways.

Open over vest tops, belted in, casually flung over shoulder. Very chic.

They were often in nude colours, but you could go with floral, if you wanted to really make a splash.

The Black Sack Dress:

Always belted in, fairly short, usually with bare legs. A shift will do, but it should be cotton or linen, as the light fabric makes for a more summery look.

Ballet pumps were also very chic and seemed a staple for those on the Metro. But nothing flashy, and usually suede:

I was stunned by the beauty of the people too. The most beautiful city-dwellers in the world? Very possibly…
