We turn to Parisians on a regular basis for top-level styling ideas. After all, it's this set that often perfectly masters those outfits that are equal parts effortless and chic. Naturally, each of the ensembles in question always features a forward shoe choice. And after scrolling through the Instagram feeds of some of our favorite style setters that live in Paris, it became evident that there are a few specific pretty shoe trends the majority of Parisians are wearing right now.
Furthermore, the said shoe trends seem to be paired the most with both jeans and skirts—two staples that often complete some of the coolest and most elegant outfits. In terms of the specific styles, it's more relaxed jeans and a variety of skirts (mini, midi, and maxi).
Below you'll uncover the three shoe styles people in Paris are prioritizing this spring. If you're looking to do a little shopping, you'll also find inspired shoe, skirt, and denim selects to consider for the season.
Flat Mary Janes are so effortless and make a denim and blouse ensemble all the chicer.
These heels are inherently elegant. While you could really team them with anything, they get an A+ with a skirt.
Ballet flats are the moment. This pair is so pretty with jeans and a striped sweater.
This ensemble featuring the button-down shirt and mini skirt is spot on with the gorgeous flats.
Keep it low-key yet elegant with a tank, jeans, and slingback heels.
Slingbacks of any sort are no-fail for the season, and are darling with a printed skirt and tee.
