What to Wear in Paris - Photos

Jump to last reply

I was in Paris a few weeks ago and took photos of the trends I saw on the streets.

Sweater dresses are big - women of all sizes and ages are rocking the sweater dress. I saw sweater dresses belted with boots on Moms in the park, and black sweater dresses with heels and funky belts were "the fashionista uniform" at the Kong bar on a Saturday night.

Riding boots with tights or skinny jeans tucked in are still in style, although wider pants are beginning to make a come back.

The hottest purse on the street in the Vanessa Bruno sequined bag. Sitting in cafes around Paris, I lost count of how many of these purses I saw. At first look, I thought that the bag looked kind of cheap and I expected to find it in Monoprix. Then, I noticed that many of the women carrying this bag were definitely not wearing designer "knock-offs." My last day in Paris, it made sense when I stumbled into Printemps and found a huge display of these bags from Vanessa Bruno starting at 70 euros for canvas and over 300euros for suede/leather. I don't think they sell these in the states - if any one has a link to a site selling them, please send it to me.
