Paris is a city of inummerable, divergent styles- making it nearly impossible to generalize about parisian the way Parisians dress. There are, however, a few noteworthy trends:
Colorful- in a break with the classic black and Khaki- one will notice a landscape strewn with bright red pants, and color statements such as light pink and green.
Comfortable- Parisian style has always trended a bit toward a comfortable, worn, easy, elegance- but this is taking it to a new level. Think crisp fabrics with simple, American style.
Fun- Peter Pan collars are everywhere. Playful prints, bold stripes, and sartorial mischief rule the day.
Beaubourg is the neighborhood around the Centre Georges Pompidou. It is between the Marais and Les Halles- making it a lively spot for people watching. This neighborhood is also home to my favorite cafe in Paris- l'Imprevu -a cozy little spot with the best Chai around.
