Winter is upon us, and while I’ve noticed Paris winters getting milder and milder, it’s still cold enough for this Australian. Over the years, I’ve learned how to survive the French winter.

Now that we’ve covered the comfort, let’s discover the best French winter fashion staples with some of our favorite brands: Top: Noyoco Above: Loulou StudioKnitwear & Cashmere Winter is the time for chunky knits and soft ..read more
