There’s nothing like Paris in the fall! November is one of my favorite times to visit Paris – the city is quiet before the holiday rush, the leaves have changed colors, and the heat lamps come out at the cafés. My Paris, Perfected clients have the inside scoop on what to see and do in Paris in the fall, but I thought I’d share what’s always in my bag for a November trip to Paris.
Paris Packing List for November
1. Classic Wool Coat
The Sézane Johnson coat is such a timeless staple. It’s a great in-between coat to wear before the weather gets truly cold. I recommend sizing up if you plan to wear it over sweaters as it runs a bit tight in the shoulders I found. I wear a size 8. The Abercrombie Dad Coat is another great option.
2. Sweater Blazer
I love that the J. Crew Ella sweater blazer hits at mid-thigh, giving it the silhouette of a coat. It’s a great knit with the right level of weight to it making it ideal to wear as both a cardigan and a lightweight coat. I find it runs big so recommend ordering at least one size down.
3. Casual sneakers
Comfortable sneakers are a must for Paris, no matter the season. I love the slightly thicker sole and color way of these Veja V-12 sneakers. I’m also a fan of their classic Esplar Logo sneaker in black and white.
Of course I also always have my favorite white sneakers in tow, too.
4. Low Heeled Booties
The Loeffler Randall Isla Booties are one of my most worn pairs of shoes. I’m all about prioritizing comfortable shoes, and these allow for loads of walking while also looking stylish. I pair them with slightly cropped jeans and with dresses or skirts.
5. Oversized Blazer
I’m obsessed with this oversized tweed blazer with gold buttons, and at under $150 it’s such a great price point. This is a staple for any french girl wardrobe!
6. Catch-all Tote
Cuyana makes some of my all time favorite leather tote bags, and this one is no exception. I love how sleek and versatile this bag is – great with joggers and sneakers on the plane, or with a blazer and jeans for a day of shopping.
7. Crossbody Bag
I love how polished and timeless this DeMellier crossbody bag looks. It reminds me of the Celine Box Bag but at a much lower price point and still excellent quality. This croc embossed bag from Sézane is another great option.
8. Classic Loafers
These Sam Edelman Loraine Loafers are another fall staple, they elevate any outfit. You’ll also notice a lot of Parisians wear loafers day to day. This is a great option in black.

9. Silk Scarf
I always bring a scarf when I go to Paris as it can add a beautiful accessory moment to more simple, tailored outfits. Tie them on your bags, around your wrist or around your neck throughout your trip.
10. Long Sleeve Lace Top
I always bring a lace top of some kind with me to Paris to wear out in the evenings and this one is has been in my wardrobe for years (also comes in white).
11. Lightweight Turtleneck
For less cold days, I always pack a tissue turtleneck. It’s great for layering under a jumper or a little dress.
12. Oversized Sweater
You guys know I love a cozy sweater, and this cashmere Everlane oversized turtleneck is no exception. It’s deliciously soft and effortlessly chic. Pair it with leggings or jeans and underneath a chic coat.
13. Straight Jeans
These perfectly-cropped Levis are perfect for pairing with loafers and an oversized blazer. I love the ever-so-subtle fade to them. I also own them in black.
14. Striped Sweater
I’m obsessed with La Ligne sweaters. They are true wardrobe staples and while this brand is certainly an investment – the pieces are beautifully crafted and made to last and never go out of style. This slightly cropped style is great for pairing with high waisted pants or denim.
15. Tweed skirt
A tweed skirt paired with a sweater or turtleneck is just so effortlessly Parisian! I also love this one and this one.
16. Wide Leg Trousers
Trousers are certainly having a moment, I love the under $100 price point of these (and all the color options). I like to pair them with a white sneaker and tucked-in or cropped sweater. These are also a great option and come in two inseam lengths.
