Parisian Dressing

How to dress in Paris by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months) "How do I dress to fit in among the Parisians in Paris?" is one of the most common questions I get asked here on the blog and of course there's not one right answer to this questions since Parisians dress in a million different ways (just like anywhere else), but I thought I could share how I usually dress to blend in among the chic women here in Paris with you guys. Please bear in mind that I'm far away from being any kind of fashion expert, I only dress in the items I find appealing.

A safe colour to start with is always black if you want to "fit in" in Paris so I usually use that as my base. I wish that I would use more colour in my wardrobe but for some reason that never happens. Although I love to add a pop of colour in the form of accessories; like a handbag, a necklace or shoes. When the weather allows it I'm always in my ballet flats. They're comfortable, easy to wear and perfect for a city like Paris. I pick a jacket depending on the temperature outside but during springtime I'll most likely wear my classic beige trench coat or a similar jacket to the one you can see above.

Of course I think you should dress the way you feel the most comfortable! Paris isn't that different from most other cities since everybody has their own personal style. Although I would say: please leave those training sneakers at home!
