Trip Report Paris fashionistas

Jump to last reply

For those traveling to Paris in the next few months, a fashion update - as you may wonder what are people in Paris wearing? So here's an update from an 8 days trip, just returned on Saturday. Weather is cool, chilly at times and definately rainy. Was surprised to see so many puffy black jackets - like North Face and Patagonia style. Everyone was wearing them. High boots. Uggs just worn by teenagers, mostly Asian, tourists? Of course all women and men are wrapped in a scarf, no hats, umbrellas for mostly only older people. Great handbags and totes - Vera Bradley cannot cross the Atlantic, sorry. A lot of people do wear jeans but I think more men than women, but women definately all had knee high boots regardless of dress, whether it be jeans, pants or dress. No long coats. And everyone in Paris has an iphone, listens to music on the metro, the men still go to dinner at 10pm in their suit and tie from work, but the guy at the next table is in jeans and it all is good. People of course dress more formally than we do in the US for the most part.

Mens suits and jackets are shrinking, skin tight dress shirts with small arm holes. A little reminescent of Beatles suits (ok you have to be my age to know that). Perhaps a sign of the economy, fabric gets reduced.

For you Paris experts who will pick apart this report, don't bother. I would have appreciated this type of info as I prepared for my trip a few weeks ago, so for those packing perhaps it will be of some help. I would have taken some different things and left some others at home. But great trip regardless of dress, hey, its Paris, so it was wonderful and thats what shopping is for anyway!
