StyleInspiration - Parisian Purple (& Gray) Street Style



Rea Papathanasiou - Paris Fashion Week

Paris is on my mind. Given fashion month just ended in Paris last week, my dreams are filled with crisp solitary, yet, romantic strolls in the city of love. Emblematic with French style is the minimalist sartorial quality which all women subscribe to. Veering off of the classic black is it's cousin gray, lighter in spirit but serious in attitude, it can be paired with any color; to blend or bring focus to said piece. My favorite combo is Purple & Gray, which, couldn't be more Paris in it's reflection of architecture and skies during the fall season.




Make this combo happen with these three excellent pieces at smart prices:


  1. Cropped plaid motorcycle jacket in gray - $118 (image above via Gap - check main page for 30-40% off - today the jacket would cost you $82.60 with code GAPMORE).
  2. Merino wool boyfriend sweater in Amethyst Purple - $59.99 (image above via J.Crew - currently $35.99 with code EXTRA40)
  3. J Brand Skinny Capri in Grey - $39 (image via Intermix - orig $225 - 83% off)

Happy Shopping!
