Since winter is still with us, many couples can be found layering the latest styles of French apparel for warmth. For a look that you can’t go wrong with, try combining layers of black with basic patterns and plain tones, as shown here by this couple on the streets of Montmartre. The girl’s floral dress adds the perfect dash of color to her otherwise plain clothing.
Always remember that with typical French apparel, it’s best to keep your look simple yet chic. Start with a basic color and then add some highlights, as with this lovely woman’s scarf. The orange and black bring out her skin tone without overdoing it.
Which brings me to my next Paris fashion love: scarves. You can spot warm and stylish scarves on all these couples. Scarves are a great way to add depth and fun to your outfit without hours of preparation and decision making.
You will find almost all Parisians showing off their favorite design and style all over the city. Outfits are not nearly as beautiful on the streets of Paris without the little extra flare of a well-designed scarf. Basic tones go with any outfit.
