Paris: The Anti-Coachella

Style

Apr 30, 2015

This weekend on Instagram, you’ll be seeing a lot of flower crowns, maxi dresses, and Penny Lane fringe, because: Coachella. And while we fully endorse a little body paint and a bikini-halter-dress combo, we know not all of you want to look like a Woodstock 2.0 pixie… at least not simultaneously.

That’s why we’ve enlisted an amazing team from Paris—photographer Adeline Mai and stylist Garlone Jadoul—to create cosmopolitan, hyper-French looks for those more interested in visiting Jim Morrison’s grave than camping out in the desert for Drake.  (Personally, we endorse both, but probably not at the same time….)

Click through le galerie to view all the outfits. And if you’re so inspired, tag your own neo-Parisian look on Instagram (we’re @whatispopular; come visit!) so we can see how les Americaines are turning directional Left Bank style into their own special vibe.
