It’s about… how you can master French style with the right few ingredients. Parisian women are envied for their sense of style, seemingly effortless approach to elegance, and a certain je ne sais quoi. While former Karl Lagerfeld muse, model and entrepreneur Ines de la Fressange might seem to be the epitome of the “chic French girl”, she has always made a point of showing that her style is not a complicated secret. De la Fressange, the author of several books on French style, offers an easy, day-to-day guide to this distinct style with the Parisian Chic Look Book. How do you dress for a dinner with no dress code? What should you wear to a Tinder date? She has the answers, and they come down to simple accoutrements like black skinny jeans or ballerina flats – a few basic pieces that we all have in our wardrobes.
You should read it because… knowing what you like and what makes you feel good is ultimately the key, but if you’re a little unsure, the Parisian offers practical advice on what to wear when and how to combine articles. Even better: you won’t have to break your bank account to follow her suggestions.
