Best Clothes to Pack for your Trip this May

It’s spring in Paris once again and it is the best time to dress like a true fashionista!

April and May comprise the spring season in Paris and those who are visiting the City of Light in May should prepare for a real-life fashion showdown. The streets of Paris will not be a sea of black coats and black slacks this springtime, instead, colors and prints of different shades and textures will flood the districts.

Spring is the best time to experiment with clothes, colors and styles. Since it will neither be too cold nor too warm outside, it wouldn’t be a good idea to stick with your black coat, pants, and boots. Most Parisians, especially locals, will be in their best spring wear, as well. Colors like orange, brown, turquoise, red, green, khaki, white and several others will be “in” and darker hues will not be very common. If you want to know what most Parisians will be wearing so you can prepare before your trip, head down to the websites of popular fashion designers and see what’s in their spring wear gallery.

Ladies will find the season exciting since they will be able to exercise their fashion chops as they mix and match different springtime clothing. Men, on the other hand, will have to stick to the common casual wear. After all, there is not a lot of unusual variations for men’s fashion. A cool shirt, colored scarf, a beanie hat, and some light khaki pants may do for starters. You may also refer to fashion websites for more ideas.

During spring, skirts, scarves, and sleeveless tops tend to become very common. You might want to build your wardrobe with tops, skirts, pants and shorts with sophisticated floral designs, stripes, and perhaps, some repetitive shapes. Since vintage wear has become quite popular lately, clothes with bows and ruffles may become “in fashion” as well.

Although you are encouraged to experiment with different spring time styles, don’t forget to invest in some light rain coats or jackets as well. Springtime in Paris does not mean everything will be sunny and bright; some days will be rainy, cold, and gloomy and a colorful jacket or coat might come in handy.

Remember, being fashion forward does not mean having the latest designs in your closet, it means knowing what suits an occasion without spending so much on your wardrobe. Let your creativity run wild this spring!
