WHAT TO WEAR: Summer

WHAT TO WEAR: Summer

Having experienced a very mild summer, young Parisians haven’t been able to roam around the city without jackets and scarves in tow. But ever so often, we get the perfect combination of a gentle breeze, blue skies and no humidity. Today we hit the jackpot and got all three.

This Fashionista took perfect advantage of the weather, wearing a simple yet perfectly chic printed dress. With its butterfly sleeves and ankle length silhouette, the dress gives off this fun and flirty sense of femininity that complements the season. It’s an understated and unexpected alternative than other summer go-tos like tank tops and denim cut-offs.

The real winners are the accessories. Having a distinct, heavy and somewhat velvety feel, suede has often been cast off as a winter material. But check this out! Our Fashionista effortlessly pairs her suede mules and suede backpack to create a statement. Proving that some rules are meant to be broken, the suede accessories add texture that contrasts the silky and light material of the dress.

Breaking out of the dreariness of winter, summer is the perfect time and opportunity to have more fun with your sartorial decisions. Live a little! Play with color, mix up prints and try new silhouettes. Breaking a rule or two can help with expressing your personality and defining your style.

One Simple Change: Paris summer nights are perfect for rooftop parties or picnics along the Seine. No time for an entire wardrobe change? Simply trade in your flats to a wedge to seamlessly transition from day to night.
