A new month comes a new season! Since June is right around the corner, this means that summer will be here before you know it! And here in Paris, the fashion capital of the world, a new season brings about new designer collections, new trends, and new styles. Paris runways are the most innovative, imaginative, and most creative in the fashion industry. Designers here set trends left and right. However, there are still those staples and mainstays that, no matter the trend, will never go out of style. This summer, these pieces should be part of your Parisian wardrobe!
Divine in Denim
A nice pair of jeans is already a Parisian style staple
but during summer, why not take denim up a notch? Though it's not like the material is only good for certain seasons. The great thing about denim is that it works for all seasons, all sorts of weather, and at times, even for all occasions. This summer, instead of just rocking your jeans, you can always rock a denim jacket, a denim skirt, or even a denim dress. Although the material is sturdy, it's also cool and breathable, perfect for a sizzling season in the French capital!
Brighten Up in A Breton Shirt
Admittedly, wearing a Breton shirt in Paris
is so predictable, it's almost too stereotypical. Many times, people (particularly tourists) who wear Breton shirts end up looking like caricatures of what they think Parisians wear on a day-to-day basis. However, there's also no denying that the classic piece is quintessentially French. And who says you have to style it so stereotypically? The great thing about the Breton shirt is that it pairs well with anything. Go sexy with a leather skirt, casual with a pair of jeans, or even formal with a full-blown ball skirt too! The possibilities are endless!
Sizzle in Scarves
It's summer! What's a scarf doing on this list!? Shouldn't scarves be part of your winter Parisian wardrobe instead of summer? Well, ordinarily, yes, they look and feel better during winter. However, silk and cotton scarves are a different story. After all, a French luxury brand, Hermès
, is known for producing the finest silk scarves in the world. Don't pass up looking like a million bucks as you stroll along with the many districts in Paris
. In fact, a scarf can add pizzazz to an otherwise simple look. At least, that's how Parisians would style themselves during this season!
Layer Up with Light Sweaters
Another winter staple
that you'll probably be surprised to learn that it can work in summer too is a sweater. But don't go for the obvious knitwear! Those really are too warm to wear in the summer Parisian heat. A light cashmere cover-up is the way to go. No matter what you're wearing now, a cashmere cardigan can easily add another dimension to your summer Parisian look. And what about during those cool summer nights? Well, a colorful pullover makes for a cozy, trendy, and overall adorable look! See! Summer sweaters are a thing and they're all the rage in Paris!
The Elegance of Ballet Flats
Admittedly, since summer allows for more time outside, what you wear should be comfortable. So during this season, in terms of footwear, Parisians opt for something as simple yet classic as a pair of ballet flats. The great about such style staples is that they pair well with anything and everything. While you explore the city or hang out in a Paris park during a sunny day, wearing ballet flats with your jeans, dress, and whatnot will add that extra layer of comfort and a touch of old-school femininity too. And don't worry, many French designer shoe brands
offer excellent ballet flats too!

Strut in Summer Sandals
Now, while ballet flats work during the day, at night, however, you might want to go for something a little sexier, Say, sandals? If you're a lot more daring with your sartorial choices—as many Parisians are!—you'll probably feel it more when you rock sandals. They go extremely well with formal wear, no matter the style. And, of course, they’re also just so sexy! Even if your pair looks quite masculine in design, the fact that a woman is rocking them unapologetically can look very attractive. But, if education is your game, some strappy heels that lace up your bare legs are the way to go!
It's summer! Of course, a flouncy dress will make it to this list! Wouldn't it be the ultimate Parisian dream to run around or ride your bike in a beautiful flowing frock throughout Paris? Doesn't that sound romantic? Summer is the perfect season to rock a dress because, let's face it, the French capital is sizzling during this season. And that's not just to say that it's sexy here! No, it's also really hot in Paris during summer! So much so that a cool, easy-to-wear, flouncy dress will be easy, breezy, and ultimately, cool!
Go For A Romantic Look
While you're at it, why not rock a romantic look as well? After all, June weddings are also a thing in Paris. If you're a blushing bride, a simple white lace frock is as French as you could get. And if you're a bridesmaid, maxi dress will look so glamorous no matter which part of Paris you are! Nevertheless, it pays to rock a romantic look in Paris during this season. Who knows? it might inspire your next summer fling in the 'City of Live,' too! Now that'd make for a very memorable summer in the French capital indeed!
Parisians find it easy to rock all sorts of styles and trends during summer! It goes with their Mediterranean territory! However, no matter what the latest fashions dictate, there will always be those classic staples that simply work well during summer!
All of these will have you looking good whilst in Paris during summer, whether you're out on the street or relaxing in your luxury home
