5 French Evening Jacket & Coat Styles for a Night Out in Paris

If you’re heading out to dinner or cocktails in Paris, you’re going to need a chic French evening jacket to wear over your outfit. Even in summer, Parisian evenings can be chilly which is why a good black evening jacket is a must in any French woman’s wardrobe. 

Here is my French style evening jacket selection for nights out in Paris. Each of these can be worn over a French style cocktail dress or a chic black mini skirt outfit. 

Le Smoking Jacket

My dream French evening jacket is the Le Smoking blazer by French designer Yves Saint Laurent. This classic black wool blazer has been worn by French celebrities for decades.

Black Velvet Blazer

A black velvet blazer is a smart evening wear option. It can be worn over just about any outfit! 

Black Leather Jacket

For an edgy look, go with a black leather jacket. It can instantly add a rocker-chic feeling to any simple black dress.

Black Faux Fur Coat

A black faux fur coat can be an elegant evening coat to wear to an upscale dinner or event on a cold evening.

Black Wool Coat

A simple, long black wool coat is a great French evening coat to own for winter. It can be used on many different occasions! I have a black Courrèges Raglan wool coat which I wear out to dinner often.

Pair one of these evening coats and jackets with a cute French evening bag and you’re good to go for a night on the town in Paris!
