Love or Hate Her Style, Emily In Paris Knows How to Wear Statement Colour

Between the sheer number of Chanel handbags and the prevalence of stiletto heels on cobblestone streets, you wouldn't be wrong in thinking that the costume design in Emily in Paris is a little unrealistic. While I don't think the series was trying to infer that it's normal for your average 20-something to be swanning around in Chanel tweed jackets and Louboutin heels, there's no shame in feeling like Emily Cooper's wardrobe did not align with your reality. 

Of course, even for those of us who don't own a Dior baker boy cap or Off-White puffer coat, there are a few other more-attainable style ideas we can steal from the show's protagonist, most prominent being her penchant for tonal colour dressing. 

Throughout the series, Emily appears in a number of brightly coloured outfits which often revolve around a single hero colour. Whether it be green, yellow, or pink, Emily often picks a certain hue and styles an entire outfit around its various shades.

For example, one of the season's most memorable outfits included a pastel green Chanel coat paired with a green tartan bucket hat and a lime-coloured Staud bucket bag. In another episode, Emily was seen in a shocking pink coat with a matching skirt and a pink patterned jumper. 

In honour of Emily and her love for all things colour, we've chronicled four of her brightest looks below, shopping out some equally vibrant pieces if you're feeling the need to liven up your wardrobe.
