When it comes to fashion, the Netflix series Emily in Paris is ruling hearts right now. The protagonist Emily’s outfit color choices may not have matched as what is actually preferred by the French people in Paris, but who cares? It’s fashion, and there should be no rule book; at least, that is what Emily has taught us. Marylin Fitoussi, the costume designer for the series, said there were approximately 43 looks worn by Emily. Let’s have a look at a few iconic ones and where you can score them for yourselves.
Look No. 1
This silver-and-violet high-neck sequin gown by Paco Rabanne was worn by the fashionista influencer in an early episode of season 3 and it looked splendid. It will be hard for you to find the exact look, but you can easily find something similar. Check out the Paco Rabanne Ruffled Sequined Stretch-Tulle Mini Dress at NET-A-PORTER for $2,250. There are alternatives like the Sequined Mini Dress by Max Mara or the Bodycon Mini Dress by Dress the Population for $661 at maxmara.com and $264 at Amazon, respectively.
Look No. 2
Emily’s mood might have been somber during this scene, but this gorgeous blazer was anything but. The pastel-colored blazer by Mira Mikati is a standout through and through with its pop of colors. If you want to own that same blazer, you can easily find Mira Mikati’s Neon Check Tailored Open Jacket at miramikati.com for $610. For something similar, you can go with River Island’s green boucle check blazer. You can pair these blazers with Everlane’s Modern Breton Tee ($65) and BYCHARI’s Initial Pendant Necklace ($70 at Nordstrom).
Look No. 3
Let’s be honest: the eye-catching cherry design may not be too outrageous for Emily’s wardrobe, but it will definitely get some attention if you wear it on your day out. Emily’s definition of something relaxing is a rocking anorak and turtleneck ensemble by La Double J. Giving major Airport Look vibes, this will pair beautifully with some sneakers. The Cherry Hooded Anorak Jacket by La DoubleJ is available at Bergdorf Goodman for $495, and the La Double J Cherries Turtleneck is $165 at Shopbop.
Look no. 4
It’s true that Emily followed the Parisian fashion style only a few times, but when she did, she looked stunning. One such look was when Emily took some inspiration from a character named Sylvie and decided to go for wide-leg plaid trousers by Alice + Olivia Maricruz and paired them with a black plaid sweater. You can find a similar sweater at Bloomingdale’s by Aqua Windowpane for $99 or go for Eloquii’s mock-neck windowpane plaid sweater ($85 at Eloquii) and complete the look with a Maison Michel Paris cap.
Look no. 5
Another look that Emily completely rocked was by Dolce & Gabbana, where she paired micro shorts with a top that had a zebra and elephant print. She completed her look with Louboutin platforms which were not available on the market back then. Even though you can not shop for the exact look online, you can grab an oversized zebra jacket from Asos Design and pair it with high-waisted shorts from Zara.
Compression Socks That Heal Swollen, Aching Feet & Varicose Veins
Expressing a person’s style and personality through their socks has long been fashionable and a great creative outlet. Socks can be literally anything: warm and soft, long and elegant, with fluff, without fluff, with lamas, without lamas – you name it, and someone is already selling it in the form of socks.
And then there are… compression socks. Their goal is purely functional and a must-wear for people with swollen, aching feet.
Why Should You Wear Compression Socks
That is a valid question. Wearing this type of specialized socks keeps your veins healthy as they increase the blood flow to the heart. They also reduce swelling and minimize cramps. No matter if your job requires you to stand on your feet for long periods or you’re recovering from a torn ligament, compression socks are the solution.
What to Look for When Buying Compression Socks
Finding the perfect pair for your particular need can be quite a hassle. Some pairs will wear out and reduce their compression as soon as you wash them, amounting to not much more than a total waste of money. Others can be too tight, especially if your calves are wider. So, the most important tip when choosing compression socks is to check with your doctor for a recommendation. They will know best what kind you need, how compressed, and of what length.
Some types you can choose include:
- Performance run socks: they are perfect for those who need to ease cramps, alleviate varicose veins, and treat shin splints.
- Compression trouser socks: if your outfits require you to be a little fancier, there is a nylon version you can easily find.
- Cable-knit socks: perfect for the colder months, these will keep your toes warm and legs well compressed.
Keep those feet happy and healthy with the right compression socks!
