When it comes to Paris Fashion Week, we always look forward to seeing what the shows have in store for us, but there is something else we look forward to almost as much: the sight of Vogue Paris stylist Geraldine Saglio striding across the Tuileries, heading to a show, usually alongside Emmanuelle Alt. Happily today’s Fashion Insider story is devoted to exploring Geraldine’s style, so if you are just as enamored by this chic Parisian as we are, read on to discover all the need-to-know details on what she wears and how she wears it!
1. Whether she is at a show or attending an industry event, Geraldine has been enthralling us with her chic sense of personal style for years. For instance, back in 2008, Geraldine was heading to the Balmain show wearing leather shorts, a draped blazer, an embellished top, and ballet flats. We like the way she has balanced the glamour of her top by pairing it with leather shorts—this adds an edgy twist to the ensemble and gives it a casual element. You can assemble a similarly stylish outfit by pairing Maggie Ward’s Leather Shorts ($185.50) with Free People’s Maggie May Top ($128) and AllSaints’s Sancia Knit Jacket ($180). Finish with Lucky Brand’s Emmie Ballet Flats ($59).
2. It is no secret that wide-leg jeans have been making a major comeback and it is in part thanks to stylish stars like Geraldine. Late last year, Geraldine was spotted heading to a show wearing wide-leg jeans, a leather Burberry jacket, and a slouchy grey tee. This ensemble is signature Geraldine. By pairing casual pieces like jeans and a tee with a high-end statement piece like the leather jacket, Geraldine instantly creates a chic ensemble that is easy to wear. Inspired? Take a page from Geraldine’s book by picking up Burberry Prorsum’s Leather Biker Jacket ($2,305) or Oasis’s Leather Biker Jacket ($284.44) and pairing it with J Brand’s Martini Flare Jeans ($174) and a soft grey tee.
3. As you can see, while Geraldine puts plenty of emphasis on style, she also makes sure to pay attention to comfort. For example, back in June, Geraldine was spotted out and about in Paris wearing grey skinny jeans, a tweed blazer, and shearling-trimmed ankle boots. We like that Geraldine has balanced the boyish vibe of the jacket by pairing it with ultra-tight jeans and chic booties. The result is an outfit that works for both day and night—it is both practical and yet full of panache! Try this look for yourself by pairing Calvin Klein Collection’s Caden Wool-Blend Tweed Blazer ($319) with Topshop’s Moto Grey Baxter Jeans ($80) and Aldo’s Straugter Boots ($54.98).
4. While Geraldine clearly prefers a neutral palette, that doesn’t mean she is adverse to a pop of color! On the contrary, dear readers! Late last year, Geraldine was spotted outside a show wearing a chunky sweater, a leather biker jacket, skinny jeans, and red Isabel Marant pumps. Not only do the bright pumps give Geraldine’s ensemble a hint of color, but they add a feminine element to the look, which we love. You can take a page from Geraldine’s book by picking up Free People’s Stripe Shrunken Pullover ($98) and Urbancode’s Biker Jacket ($198.25) and pairing them with Blank NYC’s Super Skinny Jeans ($78). Colin Stuart’s Bow Pumps ($58) or Topshop’s Pointed Court Shoes ($120) will complete the look.
