What to Wear

YOUR BESPOKE GUIDE TO DRESSING LIKE A PARISIAN

While it’s no secret that French women are Fashion’s favourite muse, the essence of their sartorial je ne sais quoi remains a mystery. Beyond berets, Breton tops and Birkin bags, the coveted Parisian style emerges as an attitude above all; a 'just threw it on' nonchalance that defies trends and always translates to chic. 

Home to some of the world's most illustrious design houses and famed couturiers; it follows that in Paris, fashion isn't just a way of dressing, it's a way of life. From floral dresses to sultry heels, key pieces are instantly at home in a French girl's closet. Here we turn our attention to la style Française and take notes on the easy way to emulate outfits our Parisian icons wear on repeat.

Effortless Off-Duty

Parisian it-girl Sabina Socol reminds us that French women never forgo comfort. A slouchy oversized knit may seem like stating the obvious, but the right one will channel a relaxed confidence that is trés alluring. Look for chunky ribbed sweaters with voluminous sleeves in classic cream shades. Socol teams hers with straight leg jeans and an easy bucket bag. Needless to say, your favourite belted trench coat will work especially well here - mais bien sûr. Just add tousled locks and we'll see you at the café...

Floral & Feminine

Vintage-look floral dresses are a must-have this autumn/winter. Layer a ditsy slip style under a cosy cardigan for an elegant off-duty look. When in doubt, avoid wearing anything that feels too 'put together'—think floaty fabrics, soft draping and subtly cinched waists. Accessories-wise, consider keeping things pared back like: a simple gold pendant necklace and leather cross-body will do the trick.

If there's a common thread to all of these ensembles, it's that French women are never overdressed. So how to take on the city's sultry streets after dark? Fashion editor Anne-Laure Mais Moreau, a.k.a. Adénorah sets the tone in effortless separates that carry just the right amount of sex appeal. Pair a slinky satin evening top with a tailored blazer and ladylike heeled mules. For added class, look for high-waisted wide leg trousers that will unfailingly elongate the silhouette. Time for an apéritif?
