Style Yourself like Emily Cooper from Netflix's 'Emily in Paris'

October 06, 2020
Move over Carrie Bradshaw! There's a new style icon from TV that fashionistas can look up to: Emily Cooper! The zany, energetic, yet smart and driven social media strategist who was transferred to Paris despite not knowing how to speak French, the protagonist of Netflix's 'Emily in Paris' sure knows how to dress. After all, her line of work does require making an impression, and her fashion sense surely did the job! Despite feeling like and being treated as an outsider at first, Emily got the Parisian style down pat very quickly. And here are some of her fashion tips that you can follow as well! Warning: This post contains spoilers!

Go Crazy with Prints

Despite their love of neutrals, Parisian women can also be quite daring when it comes to their style. Paris didn't become the fashion capital that it is today without taking a few risks! And Emily knows this! That's why her wardrobe often showed a few clashes, particularly with the motifs. One of her first outfits to work was even a whole mish-mash of imageries, from her photograph-printed top to her python-skin pencil skirt (in a glowing shade of mint, no less!). In other episodes, you'd also see her mixing plaids with polka-dots, stripes with animal prints, and more. Well, that's one way to stand out in the French capital!

State it with Color

Beyond just prints, Parisian women love color as well! Sure, a French fall wardrobe would always require a neutral or two, but just like Emily—as well as other fashionable Parisians—there's no beating that statement color! This social media strategist did so by way of coats and jackets. A tailored blazer in seafoam teal worked wonders when she walked around her pale-hued office. While a hot pink cocoon coat was certainly a bright burst when she went out shopping for flowers in the morning. In this regard, you can trust labels like Lanvin or Schiaparelli to help you bring in that colorful punch!

Accessorize with Confidence

Right from the first episode, this Netflix show pointed out just how much Emily and her American sensibilities stood her out against her French counterparts. And her style was a major indication of that as well. When it comes to accessorizing, Parisian women are often more subdued. A pearl necklace here, a chain bracelet there, a gold ring in one or two fingers, and they're done! But leave it to Emily, an American attempting to achieve French style, to take it up a notch. Case in point: the adorable straw hat she wore when she was walking around a market. Its size was subdued enough to emanate that Parisian nonchalance, but the multi-colored hue gave it that American kick!

Go Hard AND Soft

Streetwear is just as alive here in Paris as it is in London, New York, and other fashion capitals. But leave it to a girl like Emily do it her way! And what did she do? Oh, just pair a sportswear jacket with a flouncy floral dress! Parisian women aren't aversed to clashing styles but this look was totally modern and surprisingly chic. The hardness of her utilitarian outerwear gave it an edge, while her dainty dress provided that signature Parisian romanticism. It helps that layering up is a chic way to dress up in the French capital

Seduce Like a Sweetheart

In a city like Paris, seduction is a lifestyle. But going the standard set route isn't all that exciting anymore, especially in a place full of romantics. Instead, like Emily, going for a sweeter look might work better. The sweetheart neckline she sported during her first soirée in Paris—set in Trocadéro, no less!—was a hell of a look. No doubt she captured the attention of her co-workers and clients with that ensemble that night. And paired with her signature American charm, even a suave French perfumer fell under her spell. It only goes to show that old-school elegance will never go out of style!

Power Up with A Suit

A suit is like armor here in Paris. The city that gave birth to the iconic Chanel suit and bar silhouette of Christian Dior, Parisian women have longed turned to the tailored looks of many French designers to make an impact and leave an impression. So it's no surprise that Emily—pardon the pun—followed suit as well! But, of course, this quirky fashionista wasn't going to go the traditional route. Instead, she suited up in wild prints and bright colors. A particular stand-out look was a black-and-white gingham short-suit. Accessorized with a blindingly red beret, it was stereotypically French in the best and chicest way. Though the strong shoulders helped a lot too!

Pretty in Pink in Paris

Edith Piaf's song, "La Vie En Rose" is somewhat of an important anthem here in the French capital. So much so that it became a way of life, one that has defined Paris over the years. In English, the song translates to "Life in Pink," which makes one of Emily's more memorable looks totally appropriate. When her new friend Mindy held a welcome party for her, she turned up in an almost-all-pink ensemble. A rosy satin bomber paired with a floaty pastel pink skirt had all the strength and sweetness that defines Emily's character. And it helped that it was an appropriately romantic look to wear in this "city of love."

Always Trust the LBD

Style staples will never fail you! That's what both Parisian women and Emily live by when it comes to fashion. And for a pivotal point in her career and stay in Paris—convincing fashion designer Pierre Cadault to sign with her marketing firm Savoir—she showed up in a beautiful little black dress that even Audrey Hepburn will turn green with envy for. In fact, Emily did evoke the spirit of the movie and style icon there, even going so far as to don a similar-looking headpiece from the latter's 1957 film. "Funny Face." Was it a coincidence that she sported such a look in Palais Garnier? A Paris spot Audrey Hepburn visited and shot a scene from the said movie in? Definitely not!

Emily Cooper from Netflix's "Emily in Paris" sure is a style icon in the making! Even though she's an American in Paris, her exciting wardrobe in this series showed she can dress it up beside Parisian women! She arguably even stood out more! 


Where do you think she keeps that flashy wardrobe though? In her luxury Paris apartment, of course! And if you want to have the same life as hers, you've got to get one for yourself too!
