Dreaming of Paris: How to Recreate the Most Stylish Looks on Emily in Paris 

There’s no doubt that Emily in Paris was full of fashion moments, thanks to legendary costume designer Patricia Field (Sex in the City, The Devil Wears Prada). Emily Cooper awakened our sartorial dreams as we watched her frolic through La Ville Lumière wearing an Eiffel Tower top and a vintage Chanel purse in one hand.

In an interview with L’Officiel UK, Field said that the inspiration for the outfits came from an “American girl from the Midwest meets Parisian style” perspective. There were also a few nods to Carrie Bradshaw and Audrey Hepburn in some of the episodes—like the gorgeous black tulle skirt and Christian Louboutin heels Emily wore for a work event.

That said, here’s how you can cop the most iconic looks we loved from the show.


Monochrome with a Pop of Color


Shop the Elo Sportswear Button Front Blouse in Sugar Swizzle/Black, $36.95

Emily wore an assortment of hats throughout the series, but we’ll never forget the red beret she paired with her oversized check blazer. It’s a bold fashion choice, albeit one we can get on board with because of the beautiful contrast between monochrome and bright crimson. If you plan to recreate this look, take a cue from Emily and style your black and white piece with an unexpected pop of color.

Chic in Pink

Shop the Pink Gathered Shoulder Jumpsuit in Pink, $272.95

Although a bit loud and not 100% très chic for the French, Emily’s head-to-toe fuchsia moment still left a lasting impression. Pink is a stylish color choice regardless of shade and looks gorgeous for any occasion. Whether you’re attending a formal dinner or hitting the city with friends, this hue takes little effort to style. Try a structured jumpsuit or a monochrome floral dress paired with heels for a La Vie en Rose moment.

Yellow Midi Dress with Heels


Shop the Closet Gold Yellow Bardot High Low Dress in Yellow, $136.95

Even if Mindy told Emily she “looks American” in this outfit, we believe this style is still Parisian-approved. Her yellow tank-and-skirt set is further accentuated by a sleek belt, which was a flawless touch if you ask us.

Recreate this outfit by opting for a dress that has a fit-and-flare silhouette and dressing it up with heels. Florals are always welcome no matter the season, but so are monochrome styles in elegant cuts.

Floral Dress with a Belt

Shop the Bright Floral Midi Dress in Teal, $36.99

We love it every time Emily shows up in something floral, and this outfit did not disappoint. The off-the-shoulder detail has chic written all over it, plus the belt adds an interesting shape to an otherwise ringarde dress. Recreate a similar style by dressing up a floral number with heeled booties or go for a figure-hugging dress with a sweet neckline. (Emily sends her stamp of approval.)

Shades of Green

Shop the Green Frill Round Neck Blouse, $68.95

Emily’s influencer moment is another unforgettable outfit for the books. Her all-green ensemble didn’t hold back, what with the tartan skirt and hat pulling the look together. You can still channel her daring style without downplaying yours by opting for pieces in various shades of green (metallic, muted, classic). Details like frills and stripes also add a unique touch.

Color Sweater + Statement Skirt

Shop the Westport V-Neck Sweater Tunic – Misses in Goldenrod, $44.95

Now, this is how you style bright colors with bright prints! A flared mini or a detailed hem creates a stunning contrast when paired with a cozy sweater. Take your outfit up a notch by wearing dainty jewelry for an added charm. We seriously love this look on Emily, and we know you’ll look great in it too.

Printed Feminine Dresses

Shop the Olivia Geo Print Off Shoulder Dress in Peach/Black, $63.95

We’ve seen Emily appear in a parade of prints throughout the show, and we loved every bit of it. Printed dresses are all about maximum style and minimum effort. From abstract patterns to ditzy florals, these pieces are proof that, sometimes, you don’t need much to make a statement.

LBD with a Twist

Shop the One-Shoulder Midi Dress, $49.95

Emily Cooper morphed into a true fashion icon the moment she stepped out in a vintage black dress that paid homage to Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face. Well, we also have a few style ideas up our sleeves to make a black dress more interesting. Tuck a simple black slip into a pleated chiffon skirt to create the illusion of a one-piece. You can also experiment with symmetry by going for a one-shoulder dress with sleek, ruched details.

Dress + Jacket Combo


Shop the Closet Gold Boxy Open Front Jacket in Black, $63.95

Counted as one of Emily’s more ‘casual’ looks, this combo is a tried-and-true classic. Think flowy dresses paired with a boxy, structured, or cropped jacket and heeled boots. It’s comfortable at best and stylish at most, plus you can always add more accessories to amp up your style.

Don’t Be Afraid to Think Out of the Box

If you’re anything like Emily’s character in the show, you know that taking risks has great rewards. Despite being shunned for some of her fashion choices, she drives it even harder by wearing every outfit with pure confiance. More than her unique and quirky style, it’s her confidence that should inspire you to always look and feel your best.
