You had me at bonjour! As the lovely season of “le printemps” (meaning springtime in French) begins to bloom in Paris, the pink cherry blossoms seem to bloom from tree to tree, the charming outdoor cafes come alive, the Eiffel Tower is sparkling, and the gardens flourish. The fashion is, of course, absolutely fabulous!

Just as Audrey Hepburn said in Sabrina, “Paris is always a good idea!” Miss Hepburn, I couldn’t agree more. Fashion is in the air here. To me, every day in Paris feels like a grand fashion show. I am inspired by all the French fashionistas and their sincerely effortless style factor. Tailored layers, cool coats, fun fabric textures—and warm socks for that cool Parisian spring weather.
La Mode Parisienne. Un, deux, trois… Outfit inspiration! Here are three styled looks inspired by the city of Paris and this season’s spring fashion trends.
Dreamy days in the City of Lights! Paris has over 50,000 streetlights throughout the city, and the radiance of the Parisian sunshine sparkling over the town lights up my heart. This outfit is inspired by sweet smiles and strutting along the Seine. To style this golden look, I played with contrasting fabric textures and mixed neutral color palettes. Leather on leather, I paired an oversized faux leather vest with coordinating brown faux leather pants. I added a cream-colored knit sweater, white sunglasses, gold hoop earrings, and a fluffy bucket hat (French cream puff vibes!) to round out the look.

Wandering along the avenues and getting inspired by the crème de la crème of fashion is Vendome Sqaure. Eiffel in love with this city.
Oh la la! This is a look perfect to stroll around the cobblestone streets of the marvelous Montmartre neighborhood in. There is so much much beauty and history to discover here in the 18th Arrondissement. The style inspiration is off the charts in Paris! With a layered top and blue denim, the jacket is a real statement piece in this look. I styled in a classic long-wrap trench coat—this piece is a universal wardrobe staple. Breaking through those neutral tones, you can add a pop of color to any look! Inspired by the spring flowers, I accessorized this fit with gold earrings, a thrifted faux leather purse, and a pink Moschino scarf (a piece of Italy from my time performing at the Nervi Music Ballet Festival). It’s a race to the fashion finish line in white sneakers for this look! I’m ready to walk the famous 222-stair Montmartre staircase straight to the top! From there, grab a sweet crepe and watch the sun set over Paris from the beautiful Sacré Coeur.
Stay inspired to seize the day, and never stop dreaming.
A la mode! Here is a fashion look that is springtime chic. I’m wearing my favorite denim blue jeans in a light wash hue. This is the perfect look to style with spring pastels. For spring, you can stay warm and stylish by elevating your look with a jacket. Parisian influencer Aida of SheerLuxe says, “Cropped jackets are making a comeback this year, and the tweed fabrication is a classic French style.” I love this charming trend! Cool and comfortable, I accessorized with a baby blue headband to match my pastel blue tweed. Don’t forget your go-to shades! Now, this look is picture-perfect for chilling on a park bench at the Musee de la Mode or superb for shopping along the Champs Elysée with a croissant in hand.
