The Fashion Economist is now reporting from Paris, where the weather is warm and fashion is cool. Parisians really know how to dress. Thus, sitting on a sidewalk café watching people passing by is an ideal way to be inspired.
Each borrough has its own style, ranging from the classic uptown chic to the casual cool - and everything in between. Most frequently observed might perhaps be oversized tops/tunics with leggings and ballerinas for girls, and faded black slimfit jeans and bomber jackets in leather for boys.
Other oberved trends are: beige trench coats (a true classic!), designer "it" bags and the LV "Speedy", and cropped jackets.
It might sound ordinary, but somehow the French manage to look undenably trendy in a "too-cool to -care-way". After all, we are in Paris - la cité de la mode.
