Bonjour! After my vacation week from blogging I am officially back in business. To all of you out there who are as in love with Paris and french fashion as I am, this blogpost is something for you. Embracing a bit more my french influenced style with sweet details, I added something new to my look: bangs. As frightening as it was to take the plunge, it is one of the many accessories that will add up to my looks from now on.
Even though my bangs are very interesting, that is not what this blogpost is about at all. I’m here to talk to you about the essentials any Parisian swears by when she goes for a weekend stroll in winter.
White and detailed collar blouses are a key piece from winter through spring, summer and fall. They are simply a staple, but they are the perfect piece to layer on with sweaters as well, still adding a bit of femininity to the chunky knitwear.
Smoking jacket or men inspired tailored jackets are just as important and easy for layering. Of course you can be as creative as you want. I chose a long black coat that feels a bit more cozy, but a black blazer could have fit right under it if the weather was colder.
Big, chic, statement glasses are a must in any woman’s closet. From Jacqueline Kennedy to Brigitte Bardot, there are thousands of fashion icons, specially in the France of the 60’s to get inspired. Play with the looks and choose the right shape. The perfect excuse for a Sunday free of make up. What I always say: You can never have enough glasses.
To complete your outfit all you need is the classic, mat red lip. That is one of my favourite and my go-to lip colour almost everyday. Any French fashion icon will confirm that mat red is a shade you need in your make up collection and weekly routine. Make it fun. I agree it is a colour that requires attention and it is not that easy to apply but this week on my blog I’ll let you know all the tips and tricks for that lovely “je ne sais quoi” red everyone dies for.
And what are your essentials?
