Emily in Paris: Season 2’s Best Outfits and Where to Get Them

Emily in Paris: Season 2’s Best Outfits and Where to Get Them
She’s back in haute!

If you’re anything like me, you’ve already binge-watched the second season of Emily in Paris during the Christmas break. The Netflix series will take you straight to the très chic streets of Paris, exceeding our expectations for both drama and fashion (albeit ignoring the fact that it’s almost impossible to afford her Parisian lifestyle – especially dressing couture all day, every day).

But the fashion is genuinely one of the best parts of the show, so we wanted to delve into how to bring it to real life. The masterminds behind Emily’s outfits are French costume designer Marylin Fitoussi and renowned fashion consultant Patricia Field, who you may know from her input into Carrie’s outfits in The Sex and the City. Needless to say, this is a woman who knows how to create fashion icons from hangers.

You can call it tacky, you can call it different, you can call it whatever you want… It’s just the lesson of being yourself. Who are imposing the rules? Who decides [what] will be in or out? That you are in fashion or out of fashion? Obviously, I don’t pay attention to that.
– MARYLIN FITOUSSI.

In keeping up with the Parisian mode, the show’s second season had high standards to meet. Still, the good news is that the Fitoussi-Field duo not only met but downright exceeded the expectations of fashion aficionados in every episode. We were left in high anticipation for what’s to come next, now that two more seasons of Emily in Paris have been confirmed. Although our credit cards might not be as excited as our wardrobe, we can’t help ourselves from stealing some elements of Emily’s outfits. 

In an interview with Netflix last year, Fitoussi pointed out how she manages to source the key costuming pieces for Emily and the rest of the set, with an emphasis on pushing upcycling and recycling. The costuming department only buy new wares if something is needed for the next day and can’t be delivered in time. With pure love for vintage shops, Fitoussi always has an eye out for unique or extraordinary pieces – anything that the ordinary person might shy away from. For this season, she decided to challenge herself to combine a couture piece – Dior or Balmain – with a young designer, a vintage piece, or with something you would find at a store like H&M or Zara. As she said, everyone must be able to buy something they love, and we couldn’t agree more.

Field also shared her thoughts with Netflix on the importance of colour for this second season. This is a pillar that she doesn’t take lightly, coining an expression for herself that describes what reaction she expects to see with costuming: ‘happy clothes.’ She loves colours as they enable her to mix and match different combinations that catch people’s attention, so she hopes the clothes this season continue to make Emily’s audience happier and happier. 

Without further ado, these are some of our favourite outfits from Emily in Paris Season 2 that you can still buy (if you are willing to take the crown from Emily’s actor Lily Collins herself). So, let’s get started with a deep dive into Emily Cooper’s wardrobe.

Look 1: Weekending in St Tropez

What’s not to love from this candid outfit, with a Magali Pascal dress as the main star? Ruffles are always a yes from me and it looks like Emily has the same opinion, so cheers to a whole outfit that will definitely be on the books for a while. Summer nights out, here we go!

Look 2: Sunny Vibes

Accessories are a significant asset when talking about Emily’s style, as we can see her outfits are meticulously put together with attention paid to even the most minor details. The right accessory can take a classic outfit to the top of any inspo Pinterest board – totally worth the investment.

Gloves

Look 3: Shoplifting Outfit

These boots are made for walking! That’s exactly what Emily would think, rocking this outfit as an absolute star. The Vassilis Zoulias jacket is another garment that screams, ‘go big and bold or go home!’

Jacket 

Boots 

Look 4: Gabriel’s Restaurant Opening 

A special night calls for a memorable and classy outfit. This time, our beloved Emily wears a stunning magenta dress with a low back, which only shines when she’s not wearing her maximalist trench from Rianna + Nina.

Look 5: Savoir Meeting

Yes, Emily also spends time at her office, but that doesn’t mean her outfit choices are less extravagant – au contraire, this magnificent piece from Vassilis Zoulias steals the show once again.

Look 6: Chicago Meets Paris

The key to this outfit is to dress to impress. When Emily’s boss from back home in Chicago comes to visit her in Paris, she doesn’t leave any detail unattended – looks like you have everything under control, Emily. J’adore!
