Who says it’s the fashion to leave Paris in August? You can certainly take advantage of the city, which even in these lazy days is bursting with concerts, film festivals and other cultural happenings, many of which take place in fabulous outdoor venues.
Now through August 21 you can enjoy the 10th annual Paris Plages, the beach on the bank of the Seine. In central Paris—and in the 4th and 19th arrondissements—blue parasols, palm trees, chaise longues and about 2,000 tons of sand have transformed the right bank into a city oasis. These stylish pieces from Net-A-Porter can take you from day to night and create the perfect boho-chic look for a Parisian fashionista.
