Few things go together as well as Emily in Paris, fashion and France. The hit Netflix series has made some bold style choices over the past two seasons, some of which can be described as très chic and others as, er, less chic. 

The fashionable TV show, which is supposed to give viewers a hint of French Sex and the City vibes, has main character Emily Cooper in neon garments and oversized sunglasses that aren’t entirely typical of the French attire.

However, that doesn’t mean they’re all questionable looks, as Emily in Paris season 2 features a mix of designer, High Street and vintage outfits. To sort through the bad and the good, we're offering up our favorite Emily in Paris fashion moments from season two. 

Top 'Emily in Paris' fashion moments from season 2:

1. Emily's red-and-pink ensemble

We see Emily sporting this outfit after she meets British businessman Alfie, played by Lucien Laviscount. The contrasting colors of the sweet ensemble are what really drew our attention to it. The tweed Balmain skirt, ruffled red crop top, and Mark Cross bag create a simple but striking look that we think is perfect to catch someone’s eye.

2. Emily's black-and-pink bow dress

The dresses in this season of Emily in Paris are a step-up from the previous season. This pink bow-adorned mini dress that Emily sports has to be one of our favorites. The addition of a kimono in the scene makes this a statement outfit in our eyes.

Costume designer Marylin Fitoussi told Elle (opens in new tab) the decision behind wearing a kimono with the dress wasn’t intentional but actually just to keep Lily Collins warm while filming: “This night [of filming] was particularly very cold. Suddenly Lily said, ‘I need a coat; I need a jacket. Honestly, I can’t survive.’ So, I remember I went in the trailer and came back to the set with Lily’s teeny jacket, and she had this wonderful sentence. She said, ‘Marilyn, I don’t want fashion. I want to be warm.’ Suddenly, I remembered that, at home, I have this kimono. And I run, I sent a PA: ‘Go to my house, take the kimono.’ And it arrived on set, and I literally put the coat on her, and it was suddenly very magic.”

3. Mindy's holiday-perfect shorts

Looking for some vacation style inspo? Mindy and Camille’s eye-catching outfits embody girls living their best lives. The oversized white blazer dress that Camille’s wearing, paired with red sunglass frames, highlights how she’s definitely one of the more chic girls on the series. Mindy’s adorable yellow top with lavender shorts combo emphasizes how the show loves to use contrasting colors to grab our attention. Also, Mindy’s Roger Vivier bag absolutely screams summer.

4. Camille's military-inspired jacket

Camille, played by actress-model Camille Razat, is one of the most stylish characters on Emily in Paris. This gorgeous black-and-white Balmain jacket she wears in season 2 episode 1 is just one piece of proof. 

5. Emily's red statement gown

In the final episode, we see Emily Cooper wearing a gorgeous bright-red tulle dress from the 2019 Giambattista x H&M collection. It gives strong modern Marie Antoinette vibes, paired with Tana Chung earrings and two necklaces from Vanrycke.

6. Camille's matching tweed set

Camille looks effortlessly put together in Emily in Paris season 2 episode 3, wearing this all-over Coperni tweed outfit, complete with a single-breasted cropped blazer, a matching vest and a mini skirt. 

7. Emily's sleek white vest

There is a mixture of high-end and affordable brands in this season of Emily in Paris, which sounds like the wardrobe department had a peek inside our closets, to be honest. 

This is why we love this outfit on Emily Cooper. The Zara white vest goes great with the bold Valentino belt, which gives the whole outfit a little pop. The Maje sweater vest and oversized pearl necklace also add to the outfit's high-class look.
