My walk to school in Paris is great. I pass a middle school, a high school and another college other than my own. This gives me some great Fashionista/o spotting on the Parisian streets. One of the trends I’m seeing everywhere in Paris is simplicity in the way they dress. All of the students I pass look so fashionable yet comfortable at the same time. It’s because they choose their basic pieces wisely and match them together perfectly.
I’m convinced that all European closets are put together by quality, not quantity. They tend to splurge on the more useful garments from higher priced designers and buy other special pieces when they come in and out of style. This is definitely something that I will try and bring back to my closet at the University of Denver.
When buying basics, its better to go with more neutral tones. It makes it easier to match with other basic items in your closet. This Fashionista invested in the perfect pair of shoes to match her light green toned jacket and heather gray toned cardigan. Her shoes are similar to these Anna Baiguera ‘Annabeeatle’ ankle boot. Their simplicity and neutral tone bring her outfit flawlessly together on this chilly Paris day. This is a great faux fur lined parka jacket to add to any outfit. Its great to throw over any outfit to go out for the day.
If you’re ever conflicted on what to wear, you can never go wrong with neutral toned basics!
