Spring in Paris Packing List

Spring Paris Packing List

There’s a reason that so many songs feature lyrics about springtime in Paris – it’s an absolutely beautiful time to visit the City of Light. I am returning this week to take in the spring blooms and work on a variety of things for Paris, Perfected and thought I’d share what I am packing in my suitcases.

Paris weather in April can be unpredictable. And I find it always rains – even if just for a little bit – every time I visit Paris. So I do my best to be prepared for a variety of seasons and hope for the most Spring weather that Mother Nature will allow.

Spring in Paris Packing List

1. Leather Jacket

I always pack a leather jacket when going to Paris. It makes for the perfect topper at night and it also layers well under trench coats I find. I love pairing it with little black dresses but also with jeans and silk tanks.

2. Silk Scarf

I bring a few scarves every time I go to Paris as they 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. I also am packing this pretty floral one, too.

3. Basic Tee

I bring a basic tee in white and in black for every trip. This one from MM.LaFleur is a favorite as it has a great fit, a thick fabric that makes sure it travels well and slightly longer sleeves making it really flattering to wear on its own or layered.

4. Black Pants

While I wear jeans a lot, I always pack a pair of black pants in my suitcase. I like to pair them with little jackets and ballet flats for an Audrey Hepburn inspired look. This pair from Talbots is comfy and flattering.

5. Silk Tank

A silk tank paired with a leather jacket and jeans is one of my go-to outfits for going out in Paris on a more casual night. I love this tank by MM.LaFleur because the silk is washable!

6. Belt Bag

I bring a variety of bags with me when I go to Paris and this one fits quite a bit so it is good for the daytime when I’m bringing my camera and a variety of other things around the city with me. I like that it can be carried on my shoulder or by the top handle. 

7. Striped Tee

I always bring a striped tee in my suitcase when going to Paris and spring is no exception. I own striped tees in a variety of colors but love a navy and white combo like this one this time of year.

8. Cashmere Tee

As you will likely encounter a chillier day in Paris in the springtime (in 2022 it snowed in Paris on April 1!), I like to bring a sweater or two and find that a cashmere tee ends up being a great layering piece in particular. This one comes in a variety of pretty colors. I size up for a roomier fit.

9. Sunglasses

A practical yet chic pair of sunglasses.

10. Evening Bag

For nights out on the Parisian town. This is my favorite little mini evening bag.

11. Straight Leg Jeans

The perfect versatile jean to wear with each shoe I’ll be bringing. This brand is my favorite for my Paris trips and this new style is really chic and on trend without being overly trendy.

12. Crossbody Bag

My neutral work horse of a bag that goes easily from daytime to nighttime.

13. 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 particularly perfect for springtime.

14. Flats

My very favorite Parisian inspired flats. Read more about them here.

15. Converse Sneakers

Casual sneakers for daytime outings. 

16. Common Projects Sneakers

My do-it-all sneakers that I wear with black pants, jeans, dresses and even skirts. Read my full Common Projects Sneakers Review.

17. Trench Coat

No trip to Paris in the spring is complete without a trench coat. It’ll likely be your most worn piece. I highly recommend one with a hood like this one! I love that the hood is detachable.
