Heart print is a pattern that has been loved by Parisians for years and Emily In Paris is jumping on board with that in season two of the show. Here are 12 heart-print items you can shop now.
Emily In Paris has returned to Netflix for a second season just in time for Christmas, and if you’re anything like us, you’ve probably already nestled yourself into your couch and started to binge-watch it. It’s become what you could call a divisive TV show, mostly because of the ‘so bad it’s good’ plotlines and drama, as well as the questionable depictions of what it is like to live as an expat in Paris.
But another reason Emily In Paris divides opinion is because of Emily herself. Some find her loveable and sweet, whereas others see her only as difficult and spoilt. And her clothes are put under as much scrutiny as her personality. Her maximalist, colourful wardrobe – curated by costume designer Patricia Field, who is famous for her work on Sex And The City – is a thing of dreams to some fans, whereas others consider it to be tacky and overbearing.
But there’s one outfit Emily wears in season two of the show that has united fans – a heart-print midi dress. The bardot dress, by contemporary designer Anouki, has proven to be very popular with a 733% surge in demand for heart prints in the hours since season two of Emily In Paris was released, according to data from LoveTheSales.
And who could blame those fans eager to replicate Emily’s style? Heart print tends to fall under the radar when up against competitors such as animal print, polka dot and stripes, but it’s a playful, chic design that feels both flirty and sophisticated. With that, here are 12 heart-print items you can shop now to achieve that long-coveted Parisian style.
