Say Oui! ModCloth Outfits Inspired by Paris in Color
Susan Gregg Koger is the co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of ModCloth, the online boutique known for their independent designer fashion and vintage-inspired garments and décor. Susan started ModCloth when she was just 17, transforming her love for thrifting into an online business. Now, the website carries clothing by talented designers from all over the world. Susan is living her dream, and she has made it her mission to build a community that allows her customers to do the same.
Feeling inspired by the photography in Paris in Color, as well as my own recent travels, I’ve pulled together a few monochromatic ModCloth outfits, which would be perfect for any color-coordinated trip. I love the splashes of soft-yet-vivid hues throughout this book. Wear them head-to-toe, or mix them up to create your very own arc-en-ciel!
Mint was actually one of the colors we highlighted on ModCloth this month. When traveling, I’d use this mint Cambridge Satchel to carry the books I’d find from the bouquinistes along the Seine.
Wouldn’t this dress be perfect for a stroll down the Canal St. Martin?
For a day trip to the Petit Palais at Versailles, I’d pair this Fjallraven backpack with these simple flats — check out their breton-striped interiors.
Thanks for taking a sartorial tour of Paris with me! May your travels be both stylish, and inspiring.
