What to pack for Paris in May

I will share with you the packing list and the styling advice for one of my clients that traveled to Paris and London.

This post covers the shoes, tops and bottoms. In the next post will talk about accessories, jackets, outwear and makeup.

The goal is to have a perfectly comfortable wardrobe that will read understated  elegance, not touristy. Chic Parisians wear mostly neutral colors – black, navy tan, very few (if any) prints -leopard print is always chic- discreet makeup and a good attitude. Bright colors, not so much, maybe in a scarf (Hermes, biensure ) or on the lips.

To make things easier, I’ll give you the color palettes to work with.

For cool skin tones




For warm skin tones



You can any shoes, sneakers included, in neutral colors – white, navy or black. All shoes have to be comfortable (lots of walking….)
