What to pack for Paris

This is the second part of what to pack for Paris. The goal is to have a 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. As I mentioned in this post, the fit is something that Parisians have mastered, not too loose, never tight. Take inspiration from any of these outfits and you will be perfectly comfortable, appropriate and chic. I made a visual recap at the end so you have something to reference back to.

The makeup

The makeup should be subtle: soft skin, bronzed cheeks, red lip. The look can be easily achieved with a good, travel friendly, CC cream, bronzer and  a lip stain , that will last you through cafe cremes and baguettes.
