Classic Pieces To Wear In Paris

Classic Pieces To Wear In Paris

Heading to Paris soon and curious about what kind of pieces to wear, classic pieces are always the best ones to take.

Paris is the city where chic, timeless, and classic clothing pieces reign supreme. Parisians aren’t into trends, so if you want to look like a local, focus on these kinds of clothing pieces.

What I Wore In Paris

Here are several outfits I wore during my time in Paris in April. The weather was a bit colder than anticipated and there weren’t too many days above 60 degrees.

However, when you pack classic pieces, it’s much easier to acclimate to weather changes, and always have something to wear. My one suggestion for packing for Paris is always to take layering pieces, no matter the season. They will always come in handy whether you take silk camis, t-shirts, or long sleeve bodysuits.

I also had a good selection of blazers I packed with me and a few classic blazers I picked up while in Paris. If you have to shop for clothes during a trip because of the weather, Paris is the place to do this.

Navy Blazer + Flare Denim + Cashmere Sweater + Classic Bag

A navy blazer is always a chic and classic piece to pack for Paris. Wear it with jeans or even trousers and you will look like a Parisian in no time.

I am wearing the J.Crew Willa Blazer in Navy in a size 6 along with PAIGE Denim in my normal size. Flare, wide-leg, and straight-leg jeans are the choice for Parisians.


Striped Blazer + Silk Blouse + Wide Leg Denim + Sneakers

One of the pieces of clothing I picked up in Paris was a classic and timeless pinstripe navy blazer. This is one of those ultimate clothing pieces which has always been on my list.

I also bought this pair of navy New Balance sneakers to wear around the city and they are incredibly comfortable. New Balance is very popular in Paris now and all the Parisians are wearing them.


Denim Jacket + Trousers + Sneakers + Tote Bag

A denim jacket is always a great classic piece to take during the spring season to wear with trousers or even dresses. You could even do a denim-on-denim look if you want to look like a local. My favorite denim jacket is the Sézane Wilfrield Jacket, which I wear in the medium.


Tweed Jacket + Striped Top + Dark Denim + Boots

A tweed jacket is always chic and timeless for Paris, no matter the season. Wear it casually with jeans and boots or dress it up with trousers and flats.

This MANGO tweed jacket, ( I wear a medium) is perfect for the season and looks incredibly chic and classic. The J.Crew Skinny Flare, rinse wash denim, is perfect for those who love flare silhouettes.


Trench Coat + Sweater + Trousers + Sneakers + Market Bag

You can’t go to Paris, without a classic trench, especially during the spring season. This is one of those quintessential Parisian jackets and you will see all the Parisian women wearing one.

I wear the Sézane Scott Trench, I sized up to wear sweaters underneath. If you’d like to know more about Sézane sizing, you can read this post here.


Dress + Gold Sandals

For those moments in Paris, when you want to dress up for a beautiful breakfast or lunch date, wear a gorgeous dress with classic gold sandals.

I purchased this Sézane Sarah Dress while in Paris in a size 6. The Gloria Gold Sandals are a purchase from last year, which I wore so much, and have already worn a lot this season as well.


Navy Dress + Denim Jacket + Belt + Sneakers + Scarf + Market Bag

A navy dress is always a classic option to wear with a denim jacket and sneakers. I love this Boden one worn with a Sézane belt around the waist, and my favorite Stan Smith.
