So, this is the look: A loose fitting black jacket. Grey skirt. Black or grey opaque stockings and black boots. One of the Metro passengers, I interviewed assured me that the best place in town to get a good haircut was in the Marais district. “There’s plenty of salons there.”
You’ll still see the occasional faux leopard jacket, but the streamlined black woolen coats or trenchcoats with a dash of color – often the color chosen will be hot pink – is what you’re likely to see this winter on Paris streets.
Metallic handbags? More of those are in shop windows than on the street.
Shorts and opaque stockings. Short shorts – especially at Cafe Six. Leggings.
Women here seemed to be tired of wearing severely cut pantsuits.
But it’s still nice to stay warm. That’s where a tall pair of leather boots comes in very handy.
