Wilder Street Style: 6 Parisians, from Behind


While some may call Paris the city of light, I've coined it the city of people-watching; I'd never seen so many beautifully dressed citizens in my life. While this revelation isn't necessarily ground-breaking (I mean, there's a reason French women have the reputation for being the best dressed in all the land) it was thrilling for me to see for myself. I feasted my eyes on the fitted shirts, perfectly tailored suits, elegant heels, and terrific trench coats (like the one above). And, being the sneaky blogger that I am, I managed to capture quite of few of the outfits, and the generally stunning people who wore them, on camera. Here, to start off the Paris street style posts, is a collection of six photos I've aptly titled, "6 Parisians, from Behind" (after the jump).


The texture of the coat, the heels with socks, the almost-clashing bag...it's all so good. 


There is nothing better than a slightly rumpled, made-to-fit khaki suit. Unless it's a slightly rumpled, made-to-fit khaki suit paired with argyle socks and suede shoes. Then it's dynamite. This homme knows what's up.


I couldn't resist. A waiter in suspenders.


A bit blurry, but I loved that she had the nerve to wear a scrunchie. And those sneakers...parfait.


The androgynous look. I think this was a man but I couldn't be sure. Regardless, if the suit fits, wear it.

  1. When we were in Paris I could NOT stop my gaze of admiration (and maybe a little envy) at all the Parisian passersby. Even the mothers are always glamorous. It all seems so effortless too! They're an inspiring group, that's for sure.
