First up we have the city of luuuurve: Paris. Whether you're going on a self-indulgent trip to visit your true love, Chanel, or you are on a sickly sweet romantic trip, Paris is all about style.
This is no place for your extravagant MeadhamKirchoff tees or your zingy neon denim, this is a city that is all about minimal chic. Think Iro, Sandro, The Kooples and Maje.
As far as style icons go, it's all about the beautiful Clemence Poesy. She does elegance with a idiosyncratic touch that makes her the ultimate Parisian girl crush.
I personally have never been to Paris (save a Disneyland trip as a wee one) so cannot offer you any hints on where to eat, drink and shop, but I don't think you can go wrong with plenty of champagne and Laduree macaroons.
My tip? Get the Parisian look ASAP as the sales at The Kooples, Maje, Sandro and Zadig & Voltaire are absolutely amazing. Emmanuelle Alt, eat yer heart out.
