Effortlessly chic, the perfect description for the french girl style. It is all about choosing the basics and styling them right. Playing with colors, textures and lengths can make your outfit chic like straight out of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. And the best part is that it suits every style, from the romantic girl, to the minimalist, bohemian or sporty. Salut Brigitte Bardot!
Wearing your favourite summer off-shoulder trend is totally possible, you just need the right amount of layers and the right accessories. My secret weapon is my collection of skin tight turtlenecks. Black, white or blue they are life savers when it comes to winter. They are as well a staple in any Parisian’s closet. It is a classic of course but very on trend.
For my favourite summer blouse I wore my favourite black turtleneck sweater and high waisted skinny jeans. To accentuate my waist I added a black belt, letting my blue top be the star on the show. Knee high boots are very cozy and not only when wearing a dress. I decided to keep it simple and comfortable, after all that is what a french style is about. To keep me cozy on a winter afternoon I wore a long smoking jacket.
For my accessories I used 3 staples on every french girl’s closet. All you will ever need to pair with any outfit are big sunglasses, think Jackie Kennedy, the bigger the better. A structured bag is of course another essential, play with the lines and designs to lift your outfit or make a statement. Besides that, and never to be forgotten, statement earrings. That of course does not mean XXL, but a piece that stands out.
What I wore:
High waisted jeans – H&M
Turtle neck – Mango
Bag – ZARA
Off the shoulder top – ZARA
Glasses – Urban Outfitters
