Ever wondered why the French Women look so good?

Parisian style radiates an air of elusiveness and appears simple and un-contrived. The women have self-assuredness, and put fantastic outfits together easily and effortlessly. They look bold, comfortable and put-together and with the tips below, you can achieve the chic look too. I’ve also included a couple of good books on this style.

“You don’t need to be born in Paris to have Parisian style” (Inés de la Fressange)


Easy steps to achieve Parisian chic:
  • Wear chunky sunglasses such as Dior or Gucci to protect from the glare of the sun.
  • French women love classic bags- think a hand held Chanel!
  • Coordinate your outfits days in advance….organization is the key to success.
  • Keep makeup natural with a touch of gloss.
  • Stick with a solid classic bold color for your hair and carry a scarf for your hair on those windy days.
  • Add a gorgeous rope of pearls, some fine gold jewelry….. or wear a bold cuff to balance out a basic outfit.
  • Striped shirts are classic French looks that never go out of style…pair it with jeans and red flats and you have instant Parisian chic.
