As the early months of the year unfold, Paris transforms into a canvas of vibrant fashion. Amidst the grey skies of January and February, the city of lights becomes a hub of Haute Couture, celebrating Spring/Summer 2024 shows with unparalleled creativity and style. The streets of Paris, alive with fashion enthusiasts, become an extension of the runway, showcasing an eclectic blend of bold outerwear, sweeping full skirts, and glittering accessories. Each style seen on these pavements tells a story, marrying Haute Couture with everyday elegance.
After browsing through the myriad street-style photographs from Paris Spring 2024 Couture Week, I’ve selected ten standout looks, each offering a unique inspiration for anyone looking to add a touch of Parisian flair to their wardrobe. Embark on a fashion journey through Paris, where every turn unveils a new chapter of style and inspiration.

1. The Chanel Tuxedo
2. The Beige Ensemble
I absolutely adore this all-beige ensemble; it’s très chic! To replicate this look, try Rosaé Paris’ Le Bonaparte beige jacket paired with beige high-waist cigarette trousers, and complete it with Gucci’s Jordaan loafers or Bobbies’s Jill loafers in chaï latte.
3. Houndstooth & Khaki
4. The Cream Long Coat
There’s nothing chicer than a cream or white long wool coat in winter. This season, embrace elegance with The Frankie Shop’s gorgeous oversized double-breasted wool-blend felt coat or RÓHE’s chic oversized double-breasted woven coat. Perfectly pair it with classic straight-leg jeans, a luxurious white cashmere sweater, and ballerina flats for that effortlessly chic-décontracté Parisian look.
5. The Maxi Skirt
6. Red Turtleneck & Navy Blue Suit
The blend of navy blue and poppy red is a timeless color combination, exuding sheer chicness that’s surprisingly easy to recreate. Opt for a stylish navy blue suit, like this stunning Theory blazer made from navy twill, perfectly paired with matching pleated satin-twill pants, and layer it with a red turtleneck sweater. Finish this sophisticated ensemble with navy or classic black Mary Jane pumps for a polished touch.
7. Black Leather Jacket & White Pleated Skirt
Combining a sleek, well-fitted black leather jacket with a white maxi pleated skirt and brogues offers a refreshingly modern twist on wearing a maxi skirt, keeping it from looking dated. And if you’ve fallen for these shoes, I’ve just spotted a similar pair at Bobbies Paris —the Noreen. You’re welcome ;)!
8. The Lavaliere Shirt & Full Skirt
A lavaliere shirt, whether paired with classic jeans or a flowing maxi skirt, brings a touch of sophistication to any ensemble. If you’re looking to recreate this elegant look, consider Nili Lotan’s exquisite tie-neck silk crepe de chine blouse, or for a similar style, Rosaé Paris’ Le Rodrigue pussy-bow shirt is a stunning choice.
9. The White Vest
10. The Pinstripe Coat
The pinstripe coat has been a favorite of mine this fall/winter season, and for the upcoming spring, consider embracing a shorter version like the ultra-chic Sandro stripy suit jacket or the elegant Max Mara pinstriped cotton, cashmere, and silk-blend blazer.
