A big dose of reality it ain’t, but Australia is nonetheless buzzing about new Netflix series Emily in Paris with the outfits the surprise stars of the show.
Maybe it’s causing such a stir because we can’t travel overseas right now and need a little escape. Or maybe it’s because we can’t get enough of the amazing creations by Patricia Field (yes, the stylist behind those iconic Sex and the City looks).
Whichever camp you’re in, you’ll be well catered for. The show is just as much a showcase for the stunning sights of Paris, often described as the most beautiful city in the world, as it is for the incredible outfits.
But seeing as we can’t book a flight to check out the Eiffel Tower for ourselves, how about we just get dressed up in some ooh la la fashion and head for the nearest boulangerie for a croissant or two?
Don’t worry if designers labels and gold cards are just beyond your grasp. We can show you how to do Emily in Paris glam for less – and with Cashback on top!
The show’s main character Emily is rather partial to a hat – from the quintessential French beret to the slightly more casual bucket hat pictured. And why not? Hats cover up bad hair days and protect from the sun all while looking pretty darned cute.
Throw on some colour
A splash of colour can brighten up even the dreariest of days. Emily’s dramas get a lift thanks to a shot of hot pink or even an eye-catching pea green.
Turn up the volume
Get your sunnies on, because the glare from some of the outfits is pretty full on. We’re not just talking the brash, bright colours mentioned above. We mean crazy, kooky prints that clash like crazy.
Embellish to the max
The Emily in Paris girl squad have well and truly perfected the art of accessorising. Our key takeaway is to keep it as fun as possible! Think ultra-feminine neck scarves, brightly hued handbags and belts a la 80s.
Get Back to Black
It’s been a classic since the dawn of fashion. Emily reminds us why the black dress is still the queen of gowns with a couple of show-stopping looks. Turn your look up a couple of notches by going simple but sexy.
