Paris is the destination that is often aligned with all things stylish, elegant, beautiful and refined. As a woman traveling to the City of Light, it’s ambitious, yet not impossible to tour Paris like a Parisian. The home of haute couture fashion is the beacon for all things fashionable and it’s exciting to not only visit this city that is so rich in culture and history, but to turn up your style sense to take it all in with confidence, while making a few alterations to your wardrobe that scream “Paris and I are meant for each other!”

Summer is the perfect time to jet off for a visit to this sought-after destination. The warmer temperatures allow for any chic jet-setters to step out in beautifully patterned A-line and pleated skirts, sheer ruffled blouses, open –toed pumps or sandals as well as comfortable yet chic silk rompers.
For a day walking along La Seine, sitting beneath the Eiffel Tower, touring La Louvre or visiting Versailles, the perfect accessories include a wide-brimmed neutral hat and stylish shades. Pair your attire with a complementary silk or chiffon scarf along with a neutral handbag and you’re ready for whatever the day holds in store in the magical city that is Paris.
For an evening out to dinner or catching a live musical performance trade in open toe sandals or pumps for a pair of sling-back, open-toe stilettos in black, a knee grazing flouncy skirt with a subtle pattern and pair this with a lace, sheer, pastel, fitted top. If a sheer lace top is a bit too risqué for your taste, add a cinched-waist jacket over the ensemble. This will also fight off the evening chill that may still linger.
Tour Paris like a Parisian and don’t forget to embrace all the magic that The City of Light offers up!
Happy travels, beauties!
