Years ago I used to live in Paris and it was my time there that really cemented that I wanted to work in fashion. Fashion really comes alive on the streets there in a way I hadn’t experienced before and despite the cliché, French women really are just so stylish. I noticed that their wardrobes are rooted in timeless staples while making room for plenty of cool trends as well.
Now, I try to make a point of traveling to Paris at least once a year and I’ve learned some lessons about what to pack. The real trick is studying which staples French women actually wear and adding those items to my suitcase. Some of the core buys are sitting in the latest drop from Who What Wear Collection, so I rounded up 11 of my top Paris travel staples I think are worth the investment. Ahead, shop them all.
