From pain au chocolat to berets to Emily’s painstakingly good-looking French neighbor – who just happens to be around every time she finds herself in a sticky spot – Emily in Paris is abundant with French clichés. You’ve been warned: The show might make you roll your eyes a couple of times. Okay, maybe more than a few times. However, the dramedy – set in the dreamy french capital, complete with a weekend trip to the picturesque French countryside and Paris Fashion Week – is just the kind of escapism, well, (almost) everyone needs right now. The 10-episode Netflix original is an indulgent watch that is sure to leave you wanting more. 

The show follows the life of a young American marketing executive from Chicago, who, by chance, lands a job at a luxury marketing firm in the City of Lights. Emily – played by Lily Collins – seems to have a bottomless suitcase of uber-chic clothes and accessories, courtesy of costume designer Patricia Field of Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada fame. Emily’s colorful, pattern-washed wardrobe doesn’t exactly fall under the banner of effortless French style. In fact, it’s quite the opposite, especially to her Miranda Priestly-esque boss, Sylvie, whose more sophisticated ensembles serve up the more classic Parisian-chic style the show is starved for. 

Apart from her unwavering confidence, we’d like to borrow a few wardrobe pieces from Emily and her très chic Parisian friends.

Emily's Plaid Co-ords

While we’d like to steal pretty much all of her plaid collection, if we had to choose just one, this co-ord blazer and shorts set by Veronica Beard would totally be it.

Camille's Beige Dress

While we wouldn’t want to walk in Camille’s shoes (for obvious reasons), we would love to slip into this effortless beige ensemble – a See by Chloé check dress layered over a sheer puff-sleeved blouse by Zara.

Sylvie's High-Slit Asymmetric Dress

In a year riddled with grim and gloomy news, Emily’s vibrant wardrobe is a far cry from the je ne sais quoi aesthetic. It’s her boss Sylvie’s wardrobe that’s really worth paying attention. Packed with a neutral color palette of blacks, olives, beiges, and grays, Sylvie boasts an enviable collection of sharp, sophisticated wardrobe pieces. 

While literally all of her outfits are undeniably sexy, we especially love this risqué thigh-high slit asymmetrical Alexandre Vauthier dress.

Emily's Pink Coat

As if Emily – the non-French speaking ‘American in Paris’ – wasn’t sticking out like a sore thumb already, her maximalist wardrobe can always be counted on to do the job. Perhaps that’s what caught Camille’s eye? While we’ll never know about that, what we do know is that this bright pink Kenzo coat is a total must-have.

Emily's Off-Shoulder Black Gown

After being called “ringarde” (or “tacky”) by Pierre Cadault – a fictional couturier – for carrying an Eiffel Tower bag charm, Emily tracks the designer down at the Opera to explain her arm candy choice dressed in this enchanting number by Christian Siriano.

Emily's Whole Look, Please

While we might at times be skeptical about Emily’s outfit choices, there’s absolutely nothing not to like about this one: a fluttery Aje dress teamed up with an IRO jacket, Chanel clutch, and Vivienne Westwood boots.

Sylvie's Gray Wrap Jacket

Told you  Sylvie owns the most elegant, tailored, and desirable wardrobe pieces, and this Rick Owens suede wrap jacket is another prime example.
