Packing for Paris in the Fall
I received so many questions about my packing strategy for Paris. Packing for a short trip abroad in the cooler months can be a challenge so I wanted to share what I did and learnings (aka what I didn’t wear at all). I also will be sharing a more robust itinerary but if you want a list of places we went to in Paris (and a few we didn’t make it to but came highly recommended) please download the Out of Office app and you can find our trip here!
Packing for Paris in the Fall – My Checked Bag that was Exactly 41 lbs:
I know that sounds extreme but coats are your outfit! I wore my bulky fleece shacket on the plane (and stuck it in the overhead bin). Also, one of the coats was technically a blazer as it was heavy enough for a warmer day.
IRO Camel wrap coat (very old but similar Theory Outlet version here)
Bonus: I bought a fuzzy shacket from Sezane while there!
I brought one “night out” dress but the other two could be dressed up or down–I needed options!
I actually packed four but didn’t wear one so I’m advising you to pack three for room! Plus, you might be shopping, right?
ABLE ribbed striped sweater (wore on the trip AND plane ride home)
Wolford turtleneck body suit – maybe not technically a sweater but it’s acted as one on the trip–easy to pack, too!
Goyard tote for the plane (see my review here!)
Chanel boy bag – I prefer small bags while traveling to keep my valuables close
Chanel business affinty
Because we need options!
Isabel Marant Denvee – I knew a knee high option had to come with me–bonus, the heel made them very walkable.
Sam Edelman Laguna – COMFORTABLE–wore theses on the plane because they’re heavy and chunky
Tamara Mellon – for outfits that require a heeled boot (these are old, similar SW here)
Two tops + 1 tee – great for day OR night
Everlane – classic, white, and easy
Sheer, black tights
Everlane cords (totally forgot to include these in the pants category but you can definitely get away with 3 pants)
