Late Spring Style In Paris
I’ve been keeping my eyes open, and making mental notes of the styles I’m seeing repeatedly here in Paris.
We’re usually in Paris earlier in the season when it isn’t as warm, and women are still wearing darker neutrals. I’m seeing much more color and pattern on this visit, and some softer silhouettes. Yes there are always those women in slim pants and a tailored blazer, but that look is no longer as ubiquitous as it once was. Styles seem to be less structured and formal this time of year.
Silky Printed Pants
In either floral or abstract prints, I’ve seen quite a few women in soft printed pants like these when the weather warms up. Worn with a tee shirt, blouse, or even an oversized button-front shirt.
I’ve spotted many versions of what look like simplified, silky trenches. I’ve also noticed some somewhat gauzy linen or rayon-like long toppers worn with pants. Solids and stripes mostly, but occasionally a print or some embroidery.
While I haven’t noticed many women wearing scarves during the heat of day, you do still see them worn in the in the cooler mornings and evenings. This time of year, they’re usually light and gauzy. One thing I’ve noticed is that French women often match (or closely match) the color of their scarf to their outfit, as opposed to using it as a contrast or accent piece. Light blue top, light blue scarf. Lilac top, lilac scarf.
I’ve seen the occasional silk scarf, usually a smaller one.
I’m not kidding. I’ve seen several women of all ages wearing these, but oddly enough haven’t spotted any in shop windows yet. They’re worn either on top of the hair as shown above, or like a traditional headband to keep hair out of face.
I’ll have more Paris style trends later this week. We’re off to do a guided shopping tour today…should be fun and I look forward to sharing with you!
