Style Guide: How To Achieve The Parisian Look

9 April, 2020

The Parisian style has always been one of the most desirable sartorial aesthetics for many women out there. It exudes a kind of effortless glamour that is understated yet distinctive. Many details are easy to emulate, like wearing Breton striped t-shirts and sticking to neutral hues and plain cuts. But there are many key elements of French style which are crucial to formulating how women dress daily. Here we’ve outlined some of them so you can find your own Parisian inspiration to create looks that are très chic.

3 Keys to getting the Parisian look

  1. Find the perfect basics: white shirt, trench coat and jeans.
  2. Match basic items and add one trendy piece.
  3. Choose accessories wisely.
  4. Opt for neutral and pastel colours.

Let’s take a look at how these iconic French ladies do it:

  • Jeanne Damas became France’s ‘it girl’ for exporting her chic Parisian flair to the rest of the world through her clothing brand Rouje. Known for her signature red lips and messy bangs, she wears fashion her own way and is not too caught up in trends. This is why she’s often seen in the same staple pieces, but with different silhouettes and prints.
  • Constance Arnoult. The PR and event manager has made a name for herself by playing with preppy and bohemian styles alike. Like Damas she also loves red lipstick, so be sure to keep this hue in your beauty stash if you truly want to emulate the most stylish French girls out there.
  • Model and designer Chloe Lecareaux has that je ne sais quoi that has the world completely enamoured with her incredible style, looks and personality. If you’re looking for inspiration on how to pair up glamorous and urban pieces in one outfit, this is the ultimate girl to watch. What’s more, her fashion brand Bleu de Vous, is eco-friendly.
