Paris Street Style: The Fashion Capital's Best Spring Style

Say hello to cherry blossoms and crop tops.

share with your friends
Every week, we take to the streets of Paris to photograph and chat with the women and men whose sartorial instincts we’d love to steal.

After several months in the throes of Paris' most depressing season, winter seems to have finally run its course. The drizzle ceased, the incessant gray skies broke, and temperatures jumped from a chilly 46°F to a balmy 73°F – all within the span of a week. Parisians know this to be the truth: that even if you've lived here your entire life, there's nothing like the first day of spring in the most beautiful city in the world. So, on a gorgeous afternoon that felt more like June than March, we ventured out into the streets, strolled through the parks, and even sat alongside the canal to chat with Paris' most fashionable inhabitants. We wanted to know their thoughts about spring: the things they love most about the season and the trends they are looking forward to replacing their winter layers with.
