Have you ever wondered just how Parisian women manage to look so effortlessly chic? Me too. I love Ines de la Fressange's guide to dressing like a Parisian I saw in Lonny mag last night. Plenty of A-ha! moments for me.
Example: "An evening dress with ultra-plain, open toed sandals (not with the gem-encrusted evening variety)". Can you picture it? Or perhaps this one: "A diamond necklace with a denim shirt, during the day (not with a black dress at night)".
The not-to-do's are fashion gold. Seems to me it is all about holding back a little, whilst still being a little unexpected at the same time. Dressing casual up (just a touch), dressing dressy down. Makes perfect sense, oui?
