Of the many things to love about Spring in Paris-strolling through the lush gardens, soaking up the Parisian culture in the city, and the croissants that truly taste better across the pond-there is also the excitement of dressing up in chic outfits. If you want to celebrate the spring season in style but are coming up empty on ideas, get inspired by these 11 failproof French spring outfit combinations I wore in Paris!

1. striped sweater + white jeans + trench coat + ballet flats (or sneakers) + straw bag

Meet your new favorite spring outfit to wear to cafes or on strolls in the city! This look hits the perfect balance between casual and sophisticated.

The striped sweater adds a preppy touch to white jeans. Ballet flats are a great fashion choice for this outfit because it gives an extra feminine appeal. Plus, Parisians love ballet flats and you’ll fit right in should you actually wear these outfits in Paris.

However, if your fashion aesthetic leans more toward a sportier style, minimalist sneakers can work well with this outfit.

Round off your timeless look with fun accessories like a cute straw bag and white sunglasses for that warm weather touch.

When spring comes forth, so does my excitement to break out my favorite white t-shirts. After spending winter months in heavy coats, it’s so nice to finally embrace the sun.

For anyone craving warm weather spring outfits, keep things simple and throw on a white t-shirt and light-wash straight-leg jeans. This evergreen outfit combination can be paired with white sneakers that are equal parts chic and comfy.

To complete your spring-ready outfit, accessorize with a gold pendant necklace and vintage sunglasses for a stylish look.

7. striped tee + blazer + jeans + ankle boots

When in doubt, reach for a neutral blazer to give your striped t-shirt and jeans an elegant update.

Blazers are a Parisian favorite and choosing one in a lighter color, such as beige, white, or pink, is better suited for spring while still giving your outfit the classic touch.

This ensemble is ideal for classy spring festivities, whether that be visiting museums or sipping coffee at a bistro cafe.

As for the bottoms, channel your inner Parisian woman and rock a pair of straight or wide-leg jeans. And finally, finish off your outfit with a straw bag and leather sandals for the warmer weather.
