During my recent trip to Paris, I tried to capture as much Parisian street style as I could. That is always the number one request when I am in Paris, people are fascinated with knowing what Parisians are really wearing, myself included.
There’s always this obsession with women around the world wanting to know how to get that effortless look that Parisian women seem to capture so well.
There are endless articles, Pinterest posts, Instagram accounts, and conversations always taking place about what we think Parisian women dress like. It’s like an air of mystery surrounding this Parisian street-style phenomenon.
Well, I am here to show you exactly how Parisian women are dressing right now. And, yes it’s chic, timeless, and classic. These snaps were taken in April when the weather was in the low 50s in the evening and mid to high 60s during the day. It was definitely still a bit cool and the wardrobes reflected that. I’ll post more from the Summer when I go back in June, so stay tuned for that.
A few notes I captured about the Parisian street style are the navy and black color combinations, which are my favorite by the way. Most of the women carry a leather handbag along with some form of canvas tote bag as well.
Parisian street style also consists of scarves to finish off the outfit, a belt, most bags are worn crossbody if they are long enough, sneakers are everywhere, and they take chic bicycle-style to a whole other level.
They truly are the most well-dressed culture in my opinion. Hopefully, these pictures give you a little inspiration next time you get dressed, I know they are sure giving me tons of inspiration.
1. Tweed Blazer With Jeans, Leather Handbag, Canvas Bag, and Adidas
This was one of my favorite looks from the week and one of yours as well when I posted it on IG stories. It’s such a classic Parisian look with the tweed blazer, denim, and Adidas. One thing I noticed last summer when I was in Paris was all the women carried canvas bags along with their leather handbags. I assume they put work things or even use for grocery bags but it’s such a brilliant idea. I’ve actually been doing the same thing since I saw this.
2. Wool Coat With Jeans, Boots, And Leather Handbag
The weather was still a bit cool so there were lots of wool coats still and boots. I did notice Parisians love camel coats (but who doesn’t). I noticed so many camel coats which are just beautiful and elegant in general. I also love the way they leave their coats open and don’t always use the tie but let it hang down.
3. Blazer With Black Button Down, Black Fray Jeans, Mary Janes, Leather Bag, and Bicycle
Parisians on bicycles have to be one of my favorite sightings ever. They aren’t just riding bikes but they are doing it so classy. Nobody looks as good as Parisians on bikes. I saw several ladies dressed like this taking one of the city bikes for a spin. I love the fact they just hop on a bike as needed in whatever they are wearing.
4. Camel Coat With Printed Top, Black Fray Jeans, Boots
I have several thoughts about this outfit, the first being looking at the backdrop they are walking into. I mean, this is the most amazing thing about Paris right. You aren’t just walking down the road, you are walking among a city full of buildings that are hundreds and hundreds of years old and so incredible.
Again, I love the wool camel coat open and her boots seem to have some sort of tie on the back. So chic. And, look at the gentlemen she’s walking with. If you think the women have great style in Paris, you should see the men and even the kids. It’s honestly ridiculous how put together the entire city looks.
5. Striped Top With Jeans, Canvas Bag, VEJA Sneakers Plus Guy Wearing Trench Coat With Adidas
These two are typical of what you’d think of Parisians wearing, a striped top with jeans and sneakers. Plus, the guy wearing a trench (which they all do) and jeans. I must say I was surprised at the amount of fray denim I saw the ladies wearing but I love it.
6. Black Blazer With Jeans And Sneakers
This is one of my favorite Parisian looks in general and what my daily uniform mostly consists of. An oversized black blazer with light-colored denim plus sneakers and a leather bag. The amount of people wearing blazers in this city just makes me so happy. A blazer is so chic and timeless and so easy to just throw on. You don’t have to be dressed up to wear a blazer and I think that’s a big misconception in the states. People need to wear more blazers here.
7. Trench Coat With Plaid Pants Plus Black Loafers
These two are a pair, although the guy caught me. It was worth it for the picture though. She is so very French-looking in her trench with plaid pants and black loafers. I tried desperately to get a pair of black loafers when I was there but every store was out of my size. They are so classic and chic.
8. Navy Blazer With Striped Top Plus White Denim With Black Loafers And Red Handbag
I saw this lady at the flea market one morning and I wish I could have taken a picture of her from the front. She’s so elegant from the back with the navy blazer and white denim but she was also wearing a beautiful colored scarf. She’s dressed so incredibly elegantly for a flea market but that’s the way they do it in Paris. I should also note not one person at this flea market was wearing athleisure wear thankfully. It was definitely the chicest flea market I’ve ever been to.
9. Striped Top With Trench Coat, Scarf, Jeans, and Boots
Trench coats really are a big deal in Paris and everyone seems to wear one. I love the simplicity of this lady’s look. It’s not overly complicated but still very timeless. She could still wear this outfit 5 years from now and it will still look amazing.
10. Black Blazer With Black Tee, Jeans, Black Flat Slingbacks, Black Bag, Gold Necklace, And Bicycle
Another chic bicycle look and one of my favorites. This lady makes it all look so easy with her polished outfit from head to toe and riding the bicycle is the icing on the cake. The one thing about Parisian street style is no matter what model of transportation they are taking, they look chic doing it.
11. Dark Grey Wool Coat With Black Pants, Striped Top, And High Top Converse
This picture of these two ladies just makes me smile. The front lady is wearing a dark grey coat with a striped top, black pants, and high-top black converse and carrying an umbrella. Apparently, she just stocked up on some bread and pastries from Poliâne. The second lady is wearing a trench coat with a black hat and black converse as well.
12. Navy And Black Coat With Jeans
Look at this foursome, every single one of them is dressed so cool and chic. I told my husband he’s getting a navy coat this Fall for sure. The guy’s style in Paris is unlike any other place I’ve ever seen. I think they’re all just born knowing how to get dressed and what to wear. That’s the only thing I can think of right.
13. Green Blazer With Cream Pants, Canvas Bag, And Stan Smith Sneakers
You can start to see in these photos what Parisian daily uniforms consist of and it’s a lot of blazers and pants or jeans with sneakers. This girl is wearing a green blazer with cream pants and Stan Smith sneakers. She’s also carrying a canvas bag. Her blazer and pants look like they might be from H&M although that’s not confirmed. But, you could definitely get a very similar look there.
14. Wool Black Coat With Black Denim And Sneakers
The first girl has on a black wool coat with black jeans, sneakers, and a brown leather crossbody. The second girl is wearing what looks like a Bal Harbour jacket with a navy sweater tied around the shoulder, jeans, and Stan Smith.
15. Skirt With Jacket, Canvas Bag, And White Sneakers
I love the skirt with the sneaker look and a lot of women were wearing this. It’s such a cool vibe to me that’s still casual but elevated at the same time.
16. Pink Pants With Leather Jacket, Scarf, And Leather Handbag
Parisian street style also has its fair share of color as well. It’s not all just neutrals all the time although that is mostly what people were wearing. This lady was wearing a bright pair of pink pants with a black leather jacket, boots, and a black leather handbag that looks like an old Sèzane style.
17. Navy Coat With Jeans, Black Leather Crossbody, And Black Sneakers
My favorite color combination is navy and black and the Parisian street style consists of so much navy and black. I am not sure why we don’t wear this color combination in the states but it’s so beautiful. It just looks so timeless and chic to me, this is a very basic outfit but look how great it looks together.
18. Both Wearing Navy Coats with Scarves, Jeans, And Sneakers
Both of them are wearing a navy blazer or coat and scarf which I love. Plus jeans and sneakers as well. I purchased two scarves on this trip and will definitely be incorporating them into my outfits more.
19. Peach Coat with Colored Scarf, Jeans, And Boots
Another pop of color with the peach coat and colored scarf. Also, note the green umbrella sticking on the side of the stroller. This is one chic mom.
20. Navy Blazer With Black Jeans, Nikes, And Louis Vuitton Pouch
Easy navy blazer with black jeans, nikes, and a LV pouch. I can’t tell exactly what her friend is wearing but it looks like faux leather pants with Stan Smith sneakers.
21. Trench Coat With Striped Top, Black Pants, And Sneakers
Another Parisian cliche that we think about that’s actually true. They do wear trench coats with striped tops all the time.
22. Trench Coat With Plaid Pants, Canvas Bag, Bucket Bag, White Button Down & Black Converse
I saw a lot of Sèzane around Paris and each of the Sèzane stores I visited was full of French people shopping. This girl is wearing my favorite trench, the Scott Trench, Farrow Bucket Bag, plaid pants, and black converse. She’s also carrying a canvas bag as well which they all do.
23. Long Wool Coat With Brown Pants And White Boots
This was one incredibly chic couple standing on the street talking. The guy is very French to me and I love her white boots with brown pants.
24. White Jeans With Stripe Top, Jean Jacket, Black Leather Handbag, VEJA
I hadn’t seen this color of VEJA before this photo. There were so many different colors of VEJA sneakers all over, not just plain white. I love how she is wearing this with white jeans, a striped rep top, a belt, and a jean jacket. I noticed most of the ladies always wear a belt which is so interesting to me because I don’t feel that’s something we do in the states very much. It’s all part of looking complete from head to toe.
25. Trench Coat With Scarf, Matching Hat, Black Handbag, Canvas Bag, Mary Jane Shoes
How darling is this couple? They are both so chic and were out for an afternoon stroll window shopping. That’s one thing I noticed, the French always stop and look at window displays. It’s like everything is an art form to them so they take time to appreciate every little thing, even window displays.
