PARIS STREET STYLE

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I recently read Paris Street Style during a quick work trip.  It's a good read, and overall the theme of the book is that Paris street fashion is effortlessly chic, while us Americans are overly done :-)


The book talks about 8 essential items that everyone should own:

  1. Trench Coat
  2. Boots
  3. Tropeziennes (sandals)
  4. White/black Shirts
  5. V-Neck Cashmere Sweaters
  6. Chinos
  7. Pea Coat
  8. Short Leather Jacket
Here are some of my "essential" picks:

Trench Coat

 Burberry Long Cotton Gabardine Trench Coat
J. Crew Factory Belted Trench Coat

Boots
Stuart Weitzman Pentagon Boot


Tory Burch Kiernan Riding Boot {I have these and LOVE them}

Tropeziennes

 Vince Camuto Thong Sandals


J. Crew Maren Cross-Strap Sandals


White/Black Shirts


J. Crew Thomas Mason Boy Shirt


V-Neck Cashmere Sweater


Chinos



Gap Khakis

Pea Coat

Rachel Roy Coat

Short Leather Jacket


KORS Quilted Moto Jacket


Andrew Marc Moto Jacket

  1. i have been wanting to read that for so long, i might have to pick it up!

    i actually think that whole premise of parisians being effortless and us trying so hard applies to all of europe, they are just perfect in their imperfection whereas we make sure that every little thing is in place. i wish we were more like them!

    1. I hear ya. If I tried to look effortless, I'd just look plain sloppy. Sigh...
