How To Nail The Emily In Paris Look

The series has divided viewers, but it’s left us dreaming of Paris – and fashion.

The TV series, from the makers of Sex & The City, has proved divisive. But there’s no arguing with two things about the glossy-as-it-gets Emily in Paris: first, the City of Lights looks as achingly cool and stunningly beautiful as ever; and second, the sartorial element is spot-on.

Sure, we may be going nowhere this year, but we’ve found that dreaming of things that we might wear one day should we ever leave the house again has actually been helpful as a focus. As has gifting unto ourselves the occasional purchase for when the longed-for time comes. Until then, these Emily In Paris-worthy outfits can either hover around our daydreams, or make for excellent Zoom meeting/ disco attire. Paris, in all your sartorial chic… oui, je t’aime.
