Paris in Pink and Orange ~ Shopping in Paris
May 13, 2013
Paris is one of those towns that wears its fashion heart on its sleeve. A good sit in a central Paris café or a nice stroll by a few tony shop windows will show you the hot new trends in a red-hot minute. All you have to do is keep your eyes open and take some mental notes....and then put your shopping list together.
As I buzzed around Paris this spring, I noticed that pink and orange are tres tendance (all the rage). From hats and scarves to clothes and shoes, pink and orange are the must-have colors for summer. I snapped a bunch of photos as I walked down the Left Bank's rue de Grenelle recently. I must say the bright couleurs were a welcome relief to everyone after the gray skies of winter.
This French hat and scarf combo was a dream. Not sure I'd wear the hat myself, but the pink silk chiffon scarf looked so French and feminine. It was almost like cotton candy for the neck. And I think the Parisian salesperson who put together the display should win a scarf-tying award.
