So, I went to Paris and whoever said that the city is not cool or ugly or not worth seeing, is a moron. You hear a lot about Paris, you see a lot of Paris in movies and pictures, yet it is a completely different thing being there, standing in front of the Eiffel Tower, walking the Rue Royal, passing the Louvre. In this blog I want to give you some impressions of what I have seen and experienced in Paris according to fashion and styles.
I knew Paris is the fashion capital of the world and I expected something very extreme and in a way an explosion of different styles and various tastes, but no. Paris is simple, people there are very simple. Yet, don’t get me wrong, I mean simple in a good way. They take their bodies and put them in dark modern clothes, with a litte touch of a different color. A guy I saw in the metro, he was dressed all in black and just had some touch of color on his feet, wearing similar boots as I have. Of course he must have read my blog but maybe he even figured that outfit out on his own 😉
All in all I’ve got to say that Parisian look very elegant and classy, not too chic but always dressed appropriate. Still, they don’t look hipster or too vintage-y. They look sophisticated and again simple, a very very nice simple. I really want to see them in summer though. If you’ve been there in summers let me know what you have experienced.
Now, as I wore off all my black stuff and my other, colorful things, I decided one day, I should go denim in Paris. If you’ve read my first article ever, you must know that double denim is trendy anyway. I remember a time though, when I wore the same shades of denim and it looked like I had an overall – not so nice.
Yet, this time I learned my lesson and went with two different shades. The complete outfit was my denim combo with my black coat, my boots and my sunglasses. Unfortunately I was too hot – 22 °C in November– to wear my coat on the rooftop terrace of the gallery La Fayette, so I took it off. Anyways, here is my outfit.
If you want a similar shirt and nice sunglasses with it, go ahead and check out those two items I picked for you bellow.
… and of course a nice denim shirt
I love Paris and if you liked this article, tell me so I can show you more of my travels and the different styles of fashion people around Europe and maybe the world have. Since I met a lot of new people on my semester abroad there will be a lot of traveling next year 😉
Hope you liked the post, see you soon.
