Fancy looking like a true Parisian this autumn? My goal for the next few gloomy months is to keep it simple yet cozy with tons of French layers based on 7 classics. Basically I am hoping to be channeling the amazing Inés de la Fressange.
I am starting with her 7 must haves that will make any outfit stylish and a bit more French in that understated snazzy way. Bonus: they won’t break your bank because you probably have a few of them in your closet already. Are you in? If you are, here are the seven items that make up the true Parisian DNA.
1. A classic blazer.
2. An iconic trench.
3. A simple white tee.
4. A cozy navy sweater.
5. Your favourite jeans that look awesome on you.
6. A little black dress.
7. A great leather jacket.
+ This nail polish for autumn that I am wearing today.
You can mix them, match them and layer them as you wish. Last week I wore this little black dress with black tights and a leather jacket for a date night with Balazs, and yesterday evening I layered the tee with a sweater, a blazer and my new favourite trench coat for a coffee and a walk with a friend. Simple and oh-so stylish. Love!
