    Ways to Dress Like a Parisian

     

    Ever wondered why those French girls always look so effortlessly chic and put together? Ever found yourself staring at the photos of Parisian It girls like Marion Cotillard and Clémence Poésy, trying to steal their style?

     

    Parisian ladies don’t seem to dress outlandishly, and they never look tacky. Black is the dominant colour of their wardrobe and they steer clear of short, skimpy dresses. They go pretty much everywhere in flats – and they look unfailingly classy in their perfectly tailored clothes. That’s pretty much Parisian dressing in a nutshell.

     

    Read on for more secrets of those stylish mademoiselles:

     

    1. Remember: Simplicity is Key

    While each neighborhood in France boasts its own unique style, there are a few sartorial rules that all French women follow. One such rule is to keep it simple and make it seem like you didn’t spend more than five minutes getting ready in the morning.

    Focus on interesting shapes and textures for your clothes, preferably in muted colours. Avoid over-embellishing and hemlines that are too short – basically anything that can seem tacky. For Parisian women, it is all about the timeless and tailored look – snug pants, little black dresses, tailored blazers, cashmere sweaters, and the classic trench coat. A pair of nicely fitting pants and blouse like Miranda Kerr’s are comfortable, stylish, and functional enough for daily activities. Streamline the rest of your look with a sleek ponytail, a structured handbag and flats.

     

    2. Go Back to Black


    Ways to Dress Like a Parisian

    Black might seem like a boring colour to wear, but French women practically live in them. Along with gray and sometimes white, black is a staple go-to colour in a Parisian woman’s wardrobe. Instead of experimenting with colour, they go for bold textures, shapes and silhouettes that can transition easily from day to nightwear. Case in point: Marion Cotillard’s unique black A-line dress that features a scoop neckline and cape style collar. And as a bonus, her cool suede indigo ankle boots!
