What to Wear

Despite their reputation for flair, Parisians generally adhere to a conservative-elegant style, although, depending on the venue, you may see some more glitzy attire. Sandals are almost unheard-of for men, and neither sex would ever wear sweatpants on a night out, with the rare exception of designer versions at dance club . If you want to blend in (and get into clubs), dress the part. Men, you can wear jeans, but leave the sneakers at your hotel and try adding a blazer. Ladies, dressing up doesn't necessarily mean donning a dress—Parisian girls manage to look hip in jeans, high-heeled boots, and stylish tops.
