If you didn’t know already, the staple of a French woman’s closet is her scarves.
There are probably layers and layers of scarves in a Parisian closet. I was never one to wear them all that much before, but when I studied abroad in Paris, I found myself wearing them more and more often until it was just an integrated part of my everyday outfit.
They give your outfit a little extra…Je ne sais quoi…
Whether it be a large blanket scarf, or a tiny one around your neck, it helps complete your entire look. My two favorite ways of wearing a scarf is knotted (like the photos above), or looped. However if you’re going to loop around your neck, I always make sure it is just a little tighter instead of you pulling it away. That’s just the aesthetic I like to go for.
Details about this outfit:
I wore this outfit for Bastille Day in Paris. It was extremely comfortable (minus the shoes) to wear all day long and was perfect for the weather, which was a little bit chilly… I did have a white blazer with me, but didn’t take many photos with it.
Additionally, skirts for me while traveling are a must have. They are easy to pack, easy to wear and are easily transitional from day to night. It also helps that they pretty much go with any top you pack.
Where did I find my scarf, you ask? This one I’m wearing is from one of the Parisian street markets from a few years ago. If you’re lucky, and willing to get up earlier one morning, I suggest looking out for them during the week! They are fabulous to walk through and to see the hustle and bustle of everyday life in Paris.
