If you watched When you watched Emily in Paris over the weekend, you probably had many thoughts running through your mind as you finished the new Netflix series in one sitting (because there is no other way to do it). Will Emily end up with Mathieu or Gabriel? When do we get a season two? And obviously, where is her incredible phone case from? I’m right there with you, but really, it was the outfits for me.
From tweed jackets to extremely pink ensembles and so many accessories, Emily became more of a style icon with every single episode. I honestly haven’t felt this way about a character’s wardrobe since Gossip Girl, so I immediately set out to recreate the looks. I quickly realized almost all of the outfits cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, and so my dreams of wearing quilted purses and silk dresses lasted as long as Doug’s chance with Emily.
Considering Emily in Paris was created by Sex and the City mastermind Darren Star, I should have known these outfits had Carrie Bradshaw price tags that would not fit my ASOS bank account. Alas, with a little effort I was able to find some lookalikes to help us all live our most stylish lives while, unfortunately, not in Paris.
Emily’s Checkered Outfit
Because there’s a solid chance you don’t have a spare $300 laying around to spend on Emily’s Veronica Beard checkered blazer, this navy and white number from ASOS is the next best option. If there’s one style lesson I learned from this show, it’s to never shy away from printed sets.
Emily’s Yellow Silk Ensemble
I’d like to give a round of applause to this perfect patterned silk look. 👏 👏👏👏. Okay,
