It depends on what activities you are going to be engaged in.

I wish I was going to Paris on the 14th.

I would pack the following:

cute tops for the evening
a warm / stylish coat - its about 35 degrees now
Great Jeans
Stylish chunky scarf
Gloves
Comfortable shoes to walk in / walking boots or riding boots
dressy (trendy)shoes for your cute tops
A stylish hat
Big Sunglasses
Oversized shoulder bag

Make your outerwear the stylish element. Find a great scarf and stylish hat to compliment some nice boots and your warm coat.

Hi there

I have just come back from Paris and it was very chilly. Everyone seemed to be in skinny jeans and flat knee length boots. If you have a good coat you can hide the cosy pullovers and still look chic.

Also the French in Paris aren't huge fans of bright colours, black seems to the be order of the day, otherwise muted greys and purples.

Paris is a wonderful city and I am lucky enough to go twice a year for work. One piece of advice is always have a go at speaking to people in French as they soon take pity if you aren't very good and start to speak in English. If you don't try they see no reason to try either.

You will have an amazing time, I highly recommend Haussman's free walking tour to help you get your bearings.
