Paris is one of the world's fashion capitals and some of the
most stylish people are definitely French! There is something about the style
of the capital that is elegant yet effortless, casual, refined and timeless.
There are a few ways to steal Parisian style, to add a little French touch to
your own wardrobe.
Look no further than Vogue Paris editor Emmanuelle Alt for
outfit inspiration. She always balances comfort with style and gives it a
French twist with some high fashion accessories. Her go-to look is usually a
classic button-down shirt, skinny jeans that fit beautifully, pointed heels and
a leather belt. She also loves a statement jacket to finish off her outfit -
usually in a utility, military or biker style - a quick and simple way of
upgrading a basic look.
French style icon Caroline de Maigret has also nailed the French
look, with her fashionably dishevelled rock chic hair and love for oversized
coats worn over a simple outfit. The French pay close attention to detail when
dressing, opting for well-tailored pieces that fit perfectly and look classic -
such as jeans, blazers and shirts. They build on these essentials by adding
something unique - be it a clutch, coat, jacket or dress. They aren't afraid to
give a slightly androgynous look a go either, opting for masculine tailored
trousers, trainers or even a full suit. French label Isabel Marant has mastered
the low key French look, creating oversized fringe knits, relaxed trousers and
ankle boots with a bohemian spirit that perfect capture what Parisian dressing
is all about.
