I’m no stranger to wardrobe mistakes. As an avid trend follower who’s tried just about everything, I have been left with regret many times. This mainly dates back to my time before I was a fashion editor, of course. In middle school, I didn’t shy away from hot-pink and purple highlights or ripped-up tees. (The 2000s had a hold on me.) Today, we’re going to discuss a few less obvious fashion faux pas, and as I thought about who I trust most as an expert on the subject, I knew it had to be a Parisian.
Paris is the home of the fashion industry’s most influential designers and incredibly stylish citizens who have that cool, easy, and effortless vibe so many of us hope to emulate. They know one thing is true: Center your wardrobe on timeless staples, and everything else will simply fall into place. I make sure that my Instagram feed is filled with chic Parisians, but lately, I’ve been especially loving everything that Franziska Nazarenus has been wearing. So I dialed her up to share with us the six things that Parisians would never be caught wearing and some chic replacements that we could all be investing in. Happy shopping!
