Whether you loved or hated the new Netflix show Emily in Paris, you can’t deny that the show made a mark with its bold and colorful styling. The costume designer for the show was none other than Patricia Fields, who famously styled the Sex and the City franchise. There is an American charm to the tackiness of Emily’s over-the-top pattern and texture matching and she somehow still pulls off almost every look. Today we’re breaking down 9 of our favorite (and most wearable) style moments from the show. Luckily for you, we’ve also included the French sophistication of Camille and Sylvie.
Look 1: Emily’s Trip to the Winery
We’re kicking it off with Emily’s visit to Camille’s winery estate, where she rocks a quirky fall number. All the bright colors are adorable and work cohesively together, from the beanie to the boots. To achieve this look, you’ll need a bright patterned sweater in an oversized fit, yellow rain boots, black leggings, and a pink beanie. We recommend sizing up the sweater to recreate Emily’s look.
Steal Her Style: Patterned Sweater
Steal Her Style: Pink Beanie and Yellow Rain Boots
Look 2: When Emily Met Camille
I think we all fell in love with Camille in this moment, but the fashion standout of these scenes was Emily’s bright pink coat. She balances the statement coat with a casual, lightweight tie dye sweater. Without over-accessorizing, she allows the clothes to speak.

Look 3: Sylvie Excludes Emily from a Meeting
Who knew work wear could look this good?! Sylvie’s wardrobe was a total hit and everything she wore at work and outside of work embodied the modern sophistication of French style that we know and love. In this scene, Sylvie is rocking a sexy red sheath dress that fits like a glove, styled with a matching red belt for a muted monochromatic look. Don’t forget the resin hoop earrings.
Steal Her Style: Red Sheath Dress and Belt
Look 4: Camille Stuns at an Art Gallery
Camille looks très chic in this scene where she wears a metallic surplice number that accentuates her curves in all the right places. We love how she keeps the styling minimal.

Look 5: Sylvie Takes Charge
Sylvie wows in an emerald green dress with a serious slit. She accessorizes with large gold dangled earrings and wears a longline khaki trench coat over her dress. For a more in-depth look on styling trench coats, you can check it out HERE

Look 6: Emily’s Coffee Break
This outfit is one of the simpler looks Emily wears in the show, and that’s why we love it! Super on-trend for the fall with versatile pieces that you probably already own. Pair a tweed/plaid jacket that hits at the hips with a buttoned down blouse (Emily wears a deep red shade, but any color will do) and a pair of loose-fit straight cut jeans in a dark wash. Finally, she wears Western-inspired booties in a beige color. The key here is to keep your shirt buttoned the way she does and choose a structured jacket of the same length to achieve the same visual balance as Emily’s outfit. Finally, accessorize with silver hoops.

Steal Her Style: Beige Ankle Boots
Look 7: Sylvie’s Not-So Mysterious Shopping Trip
It’s an unpleasant morning as Sylvie runs into Emily who catches her on a shopping trip for a not-so-secret getaway with Antoine, but she can smile knowing she’s hitting a major fall trend with her super chic leather trench. We love the neutral palette of her coat, simple black top, and tan skirt with a white trim. Sylvie obviously loves her slits. She finishes the look with white pumps.

Steal Her Style: Knee-Length Skirt with Slit
Steal Her Style: White Pumps
Look 8: Camille Invites Emily to Thirdwheel Her Date
*SPOILER ALERT* Cool girl, Camille, unknowingly invites Emily to hang out with her and Gabriel, AFTER Emily kisses him at the restaurant. Awkward. But on another note, we’re obsessed with how cool and sweet Camille looks in her oversized leather jacket and mini plaid dress. Such a trendy combo.
Steal Her Style: Oversized Leather Jacket
Steal Her Style: Plaid Mini Dress
Look 9: Emily Throws Another Office Tantrum
Last but certainly not least, Emily’s quirky style is showcased in this scene where she wears a designer Varsity cardigan paired with tweed shorts adorned with large gold buttons, and accessorizes her look with a pearl choker. You can choose to wear your cardigan with a basic white cami like Emily does here, or you can wear it unbuttoned, off the shoulder — the choice is yours.
Steal Her Style: Varsity Cardigan
Steal Her Style: Tweed Shorts
Steal Her Style: Pearl Choker
Style Tip! A repeating style pattern we see Emily (and Mindy) wear is a scarf around the neck. This is a great way to accessorize to achieve a refined, collected, and fresh look. To achieve Sylvie’s Parisian style, opt for pieces that are form-fitting but keep the color palette neutral. If you’re wearing brighter colors (like green or red), keep the accessories and outerwear simple, minimal, and muted. Sylvie prefers subtle and sexy design details over loud accessories and trims.
And that’s a wrap on 9 of our favorite style moments in Emily in Paris! Did you watch the show? What are your thoughts? Which style moments were your fave? Let’s discuss in the comments!
