I Live in Paris, and I Get So Many Reactions When I Wear These 7 Trends

I’m always enamored with the outfit formulas Emmanuelle Koffi puts together. The Paris-based influencer has perfectly mastered that je ne sais quoi with ensembles that are forward and effortless. In fact, it’s this look featuring a quilted coat and knee-high boots that recently inspired me. The caption read, “Got so many reactions about this look, thank you angels.” Naturally, I was intrigued by the other items and trends Koffi has worn recently that have garnered compliments.

I actually reached out to her and asked if she could share a list of the specific trends she’s been getting A+ reactions on during the season. Her responses were spot-on, focusing on pieces that are versatile yet chic. Honestly, many of the items she’s coveting right now could become staple status in many of our own wardrobes. With all that in mind, keep scrolling to check out the trends Koffi is all about, complete with visual and shopping inspo.

1. Faux-Leather Outerwear

“I love a Matrix fashion vibe. Faux-leather outerwear is a classic and instantly gives you an amazing look. I love wearing mine with a pair of jeans and boots.”

2. Knee-High Boots

“High boots are my fall/winter obsession, and I’m not the only one. I still want to wear dresses, skirts, and shorts during winter, so they work great with my looks.”

“Trench coats are one of the reasons why I love fall. If you want a chic Parisian look in a second, that’s the perfect piece.”

4. Wide-Leg Jeans

“The quest for the perfect jeans is obviously a rocky one.  I always have comments on my jeans because I spend so much time searching for the perfect ones. My favorites are mom jeans and wide-leg jeans. I like to wear them with sneakers for a casual look.”

5. Plaid Skirt

“My forever favorite trend for every season. I’m a big fan of the preppy look. I like to imagine myself in Gossip Girl or Clueless. As we all love these movies and shows, people always react on my multiple checked skirts. I love to wear them with a cute sweater or an oversize knit and boots for winter.”

“When it comes to accessories, a cute bucket bag always makes an effect. It gives a vintage touch to any outfit. They’re simply iconic. In leather or suede, fringed or quilted, the bucket bag just works.”

7. Silk Dress

“I got a lot of compliments on all of my silky dresses. They are soft and classy. They make you feel super glamourous.”
