Paris Street Style



Have you ever been to a city that just resonates with you? Every step of exploring unknown streets leads you deeper and deeper into wonder. The more you learn, the more you want to know. The more you know, the more you want to be a part of it. Paris was that city for me. I was enthralled from the moment I stepped off the plane.

The city itself is splendid, but it was the people who impressed me most. Nearly everyone I saw was well put together and displayed a seemingly effortless beauty. I'd always heard the term "Parisian chic" but didn't realize what it meant until I saw it with my own eyes. My visit to Paris was when my interest in fashion took off - until then, Ugg boots and North Face jackets were constant staples as I dressed predominately for comfort. It was Paris that opened my eyes to fashion and style being a form of expression; an art form within itself.

I've watch Paris from afar ever since. Paris Fashion Week has been well documented in magazines and fashion blogs but the above street style pictures from Refinery 29 really caught my eye. They capture Parisian style perfectly - casual yet elegant, with a mix of flattering basics, and always an aura of confidence.

Do you admire the Parisians as much as I do?
What's your favorite street style look from Paris Fashion Week?

  1. I LOVEEEE Paris and the fashion. Even street styles that don't get captured leave me in wonder. I also feel somewhat similarly with Italy. All over Italy everyone was gorgeously and effortlessly put together

  2. The time that I spend living in Paris, I got so inspired by all the chic people so when I came back to my country, I started fashion blogging. :) xx

  9. I completely agree! Paris is truly an amazing place. I really felt at home there in a way. I even was mistaken for a Parisian more than once. It was heaven. I felt the people were so charming and wonderful.

  10. I'm in awe of Parisian women and their effortlessly chic and timeless looks. They seem to age more gracefully and look so much younger too. Beautiful post, the pics absolutely encapsulate the feeling and vibe. Although I've never been to Paris, I really hope to one day!
