Long walks along the Seine, beautiful sunsets, light drenched streets, the feel of crisp golden leaves under your feet, Autumn in Paris is truly spectacular. Cool, fresh mornings are met by warm Indian summer afternoons.

Cosy 2 Go
To start the season in style, find the cosiest café, order a warm café crème and wrap up in a snug sweater. As cosy as it is chic, a cashmere sweater, slightly oversized, worn with jeans, flats or biker boots will take you seamlessly from café to bistro and right through to Spring.

Black on Black
Add the right amount of Parisian panache with elegant boots and bags. Biker, bootie, high, low, the boot is a guaranteed Parisian essential for this time of year. A slouchy black bag paired with an elegant bootie is perfect for Sunday strolls in the parks and around les Marchés aux Puces.

A Crisp Classic
A crisp white shirt can go from day to night. For a classic Paris day look, layer up with blue jeans, boots/flats and a trench. In the evening rock it up with slinky black trousers, heels and a clutch. On warmer days a white shirt with jeans, shades and flats is working smart.

The Allure of the Trench
From the magical movies of Audrey Hepburn to the effortless style of Ines de La Fressange the trench is timeless, feminine and oh so covetable! It’s become a dependable Paris staple in all seasons and great for dealing with unpredictable weather. To a morning meeting or cocktails in the evening, in any event you can bet on and belt up in Le Trench.

The Blazer

An official item of the Paris fashion week uniform (just think Emmanuel Alt). Covet with cropped skinny jeans, a perfect black tee, heels and you are perfectly tailored for the season. Trade the blazer for a black biker jacket if you`re feeling more Marlon Brando.

A final French Touch
For a final fall touch, inject a bit of personal sparkle with playful accessories. Add your own style with a personalized necklace, a vintage find, a print or patterned bag, an old soft scarf or cozy wooly socks.

When chillier days set in, a good coat, an oversized cardigan or a cape are great cover ups. A fine cashmere scarf is always a treat for fall and for more glamorous moments, paint on a brush of deep red lacquer.
