Doesn't someone always seem to be talking about Paris? Dreaming about being there, planning a trip there, or actually being there and posting the most envy-inducing content an Instagrammer could post. Once in awhile, I'll don an outfit that makes me feel like I should be able to just pick myself up and insert myself onto the Champs-Élysées taking a rainy day stroll towards the Eiffel Tower.
A few new pieces I've picked up from French brand Sézane seem to do that for me. Dainty textures, tasteful prints, elegant silhouettes, and dreamy knits are just a few elements that set Sézane apart from the noisy mass of fast fashion that hounds us here in the States. Combining this decidedly feminine top with a structured trench coat and menswear-inspired shoes helped me transpose that effortless Parisian look for Seattle streets. If you're lucky enough to be in Paris or New York, you can visit Sézane in-store. For the rest of us, they offer free express shipping to the U.S. if you spend $200, which—trust me—you'll want to.
