Keep scrolling for shopping inspiration that will make us all one step closer to passing for Parisian.

Keep: Oversized Outerwear Store: Cape Coat

“I remember having a cape from ASOS, and although it was really cute, I ended up selling it because it wasn’t that easy to wear, so I replaced it with an oversized coat that I wear every single day.”

Brit + Co Pick: Mango Unstructured Virgin Wool Coat ($150)

 Keep: Mom Jeans Store: Skinny Jeans

“I know skinnies have been here for years. In fact, I actually own a few pairs, but I have never been a huge fan. High-waisted mom jeans are popular right now and I love them because they are great for my shape (small waist and a larger butt). Plus, they’re more elegant in my opinion and are way more comfortable than skinny options.”

Brit + Co Pick: Levi’s Premium Wedgie Straight Jeans ($98)

Keep: Baker Boy Hats Store: Bucket Hats

“I feel like bucket hats are trying to come back like the fanny bag (which I love), but it’s still a no for me. I’m a big hat fan in general, so I wear baker boy hats or beanies. I rarely go out without something on my head.”

Brit + Co Pick: BP. Chenille Baker Boy Cap ($17)
