Packing for a chic city like Paris can be daunting, but in reality, it can be quite simple. You should wear your favorite pieces, thing you feel comfortable in...but here are a few of the guidelines I always keep in mind:
- Black, black, and more black. Admittedly, this is my preference irrespective of where I am, but it's particularly practical for traveling as well. You can re-wear pieces, mixing and matching is easy, and it's inherently sleek.
- Bring a pair of comfy booties. Paris is a walking city and it often rains.*
- Always carry a notebook. You'll likely want to log the spots you stumble upon and fall totally in love with (warning: in Paris, this may be everywhere).
*Note: "comfy booties" in no way implies that those pink and green polka dot rain boots will fly. Please refer to point one for clarification.
