Street Style: Rue St. Michel

We love leather jackets as much as the next person, but we'll admit that they aren't exactly very warm. We love the way Alex expertly sported her vintage wool jacket underneath, and topped off the look with a beautiful tie-dyed scarf reminiscent of kindergarten's craft project fun. The ensemble, with its warm colors and textures is not only aesthetically pleasing to the eye, but also perfect for bracing the harsh Parisian winters.

Street Style: Summery Autumn

I'm usually not a huge fan of leggings in general. I find tights to be much more flattering and serve the same purpose. However, when you've got legs like these, anything goes. I love recycling summery prints for autumn and winter wear, and in cases like this, pairing black and grey cardigan/flats with your summer flocks can keep the focus on the color of the dress. This look is just so darn fresh, elegant, and perfect for autumn/spring, the "transitional" seasons.

Street Style: Starry Night

I was immediately drawn to the little stars on Jessica's scarf as I passed her on the street. They really make her eyes sparkle, and she emits such a youthful innocence. This almost reminded me of the French novella Le Petit Prince, which is a remarkably delightful novel on the beauty of youth in which the main character counts his lucky stars; I highly suggest the book if you haven't already read it.

Street Style: Faux Fur and Leather

Camille's channeling her inner rock with her faux fur and liquid leggings. She's taken a few staples and layered them together well. The mono-chromatic ensemble works with the different textures she's chosen - wool grey cardigan, faux fur, and leather. We give her A for finished product.
