Whether you're traveling to France for Bastille Day, or seeing art and shopping in Paris, here are 5 items that will have you looking chic throughout your trip.
I dreamed of Paris. And in my dream golden dragonflies were silhouetted against a turquoise sky. The memories of butterflies and pink flowers on the ground were seen ghostlike. The Eiffel Tower in my dream was a deep pink and the golden earth led up the boulevard to the iconic symbol of modern architecture.~Miriam Schulman

Every traveler needs a great suitcase. Celebrate luxury French heritage with a Louis Vuitton monogram travel bag.

Nothing says French Riviera like a navy and white striped shirt. It's easy and comfortable, and adds the perfect dose of pattern to an outfit.

Patent Edie Ballet Flat, Tory Burch

When you're running to catch your plane or strolling in the streets of France, you want a flat, comfortable shoe. Red ballet flats are classic and easy to mix and match with whatever you pack.

When on vacation, the days just never seem long enough. Keep track of time with a stylish gold watch.

Jersey Dress, Donna Karan
Perhaps the most versatile dress in existence is the Little Black Dress, created by the legendary french designer Coco Chanel. This version by Donna Karan is made from jersey fabric so it won't wrinkle in your suitcase.
