Parisian Classics

Those of you who have followed for a while now will know about my obsession with the Parisian street style aesthetic. There must be some sort of French gene that makes Parisians look beautifully unkempt with a total air of nonchalance.

I’m still waiting for the day I get to ‘chic’ with zero effort, so this look is just one of my many attempts. I put together some classic French elements – a fringe, Dior handbag and slingback pumps – to see how close I could come. Black is key in this look. It’s very hard to go wrong with black, but as someone who also likes statement pieces I added some beige tones for a slight lift in colour. Still understated, and probably as close to Charlotte Gainsbourg as I’ll ever get.

I agree the that the French are naturally gifted at making classic style look soo simple; they’ve also cornered that market in the beauty world XD. In the next life, I’m in line for the Parisian ride.<3 ify
