A Peek at Paris Street Style

I happened upon this short video several months ago, and really enjoyed it.  It was filmed last summer on
a street in Paris, and captures the personal style of various women over the age of 40 who just happened to be walking by.

A number of the outfits were classics, and not surprisingly, they were my favorites.  I  loved the combination of beige, four-pocket jacket, belted olive shift dress, cognac leather handbag, and loosely tied-back ponytail (pictured above).  I also liked the gray sheath dress (shown below) and the simple, black v-neck dress shown near the end of the video.

I was impressed with the confidence these women expressed, especially given that they didn’t seem to know who was filming them.

I’m curious to know what you all think.
