Paris is one of the fashion capitals of the world. The city is known worldwide for paying close attention to fashion and, because of this, the citizens are also generally fashionable. The uniformity in selective fashion inspired others to dress “Parisian.” To many, this style is fashion forward but minimal and distinctive. The Parisians don’t focus on flashy or vibrant colors, rather they use neutral tones. Their look is emulated by others through wearing striped t-shirts or long trench coats but following the Parisian style goes deeper than adding a couple extra pieces. It’s also trying to embody the busy lifestyle of a Paris native while wearing clothes that make you stand out from the crowd.

 

The Parisians always keep their clothing and accessories to a minimum. Don’t wear more than a few pieces of jewelry, or alternatively, only choose one statement piece like a scarf or hat to make an outfit great. Simplicity is a law among the Parisians, nothing too flashy, vibrant or distracting should take away from the entirety of the outfit.

 

Tone down an outfit to make it more distinct and unique. Parisian outfits often mix dressy with casual. Add flats with a skirt instead of heals or dress up jeans with elegant sandals. It’s these small wardrobe decisions that change a person’s outfit to a Parisian outfit. The idea is to not make the outfit look too perfect or put together. That purposeful casualness is a favorite amongst Parisian stylists.

Pastel de Nata in Portugal

While it’s unlikely you’d go all the way to Lisbon, Portugal, for just one dish, there’s certainly one bite you must have while you’re there: the egg tart. Pastel de nata (cream pastry) is a national obsession that has become a bucket-list bite for nearly every traveler to the country’s seaside capital. Fortunately for tourists, the city’s most iconic landmark, Belém Tower, is located just across the street and down the shoreline from the city’s undisputed powerhouse of pastel, Pastéis de Bélem. Unfortunately for visitors, the line leading to Pastéis de Bélem’s bakery counter may be the longest line found anywhere in the city, as salivating hordes wait their turn to taste the original, secret recipe invented by the monks of the nearby Jerónimos Monastery in Santa Maria de Bélem, itself an architecture masterpiece that places it at the top of any Lisbon must-list.
