Spring may not be in the Paris air quite yet, but designers’ spring collections are certainly filling nearly every shop window along the Champs-Elysées and beyond, so getting in the spirit of spring is unavoidable. This brightly chic ensemble from Lela Rose is absolute perfection for a leisurely afternoon of Paris shopping, lunch with friends or any sophisticated daytime event.
So let yourself spring into spring with a colorful frock and you’ll look brighter than tous les fleurs in the Luxembourg Gardens. Plus, the shrug is great for a little coziness in the early spring weather. For accessories, we chose a luscious metallic lambskin Lanvin clutch with a lovely bow detail, along with some gorgeous studded-heel pumps à la Valentino. Because of the variability of the weather in Paris in the late winter and spring—not to mention the frequent rain—we tend to wear mostly closed-toed shoes this time of year, even though our feet are yearning for some fresh air. For the jewelry, we couldn’t resist the soft elegance of these Stephen Dweck floral-carved clip earrings, and you can never go wrong with an Yves Saint Laurent bijou, which here ties together so beautifully with the colors of the dress.
