Spotted: Parisian-inspired pieces you’ll be wearing right through spring

It may be kinda chilly still, but since it’s officially March I’m starting to feel like Spring’s just round the corner! One of the things I’ve started trying to do is shop more responsibly, which for me means buying pieces I can make work year after year, whatever the season. Enter Parisian-chic: featuring pretty, polka dot prints in fresh, floaty fabrics, this is one trend that’s sure to stand the test of time! I’ve picked out some tres bon Paris-inspired pieces to get you through the warmer months ahead and put together an outfit to get you started if you’re after a little style inspo. 

The slighly awkward smile when the wind gives you a little Madame Marilyn Monroe moment… 

Polka dot tights: New Look

H&M: The Paris Effect

Ah, H&M… these guys are totally killin’ it on the Parisian style front. Not only are they servin’ all the vibes, but they’ve actually got an entire collection dedicated to paying homage to the city of love *swoons*, featuring lots of simple prints and monochromatic hues. The best thing about  these pieces is, they really speak for themselves – you only really need a slick of red lipstick to complete your look!

2) River Island: Just West of Paris

River Island’s Parisian edit puts a slightly more modern twist on classic French style, featuring neutral tones that cover everything from pretty lace dresses to edgy fringed outerwear. It’s perfect for ladies who want to get a hint of the French city girl look without going full ham… (or croissant? Never mind.) Pair with a beret in a neutral hue for maximum style points!

 

Bonjour, New season style!

3) New Look: Parisian Style Mix- Casual, cute and colourful

For ladies who fancy a taste of Paris but without the indulgent style cuisine, New Look’s totally got you covered! Their new season collection features more laid-back pieces that are suitable for everyday wear, for that ‘I woke up like this’ vibe. Pair with your favourite jeans and a pair of slingbacks à la Miss Coco Chanel, the queen of Parisian chic herself

4) Orelia Jewellery: Pearls, Pearls, Pearls

There’s something about pearls that’s so very Parisian, especially when they’re paired with a hint of gold! As you’ll probably know, Orelia is one of my favourite brands and while they don’t have a specific Paris-inspired collection, there are a lot of pieces from their new collection which have that Parisian-chic vibe! This gorgeous hair slide is a recent purchase and safe to say its a new fave in my ‘hairdrobe’. With its gold-plated finish, its a classic design that’s sure to stand the test of time.
