THE PARISIAN CLASSIC

July 19, 2017


If you're a really hip blogger, then you would of read How To Be Parisian: Wherever You Are  many moons ago. Literally, everyone who is anyone was Instagraming this book (it is very beautiful and certainly worthy of a pic on the grid - guilty!). This book has a big place in my heart, although being a lover of Caroline De Maigret makes that easy. Since purchasing over three years ago, I still go to this hardback for constant inspiration. It's obvious Parisian style is one of the most influential, what with IT girls taking bits from their everyday, easy to wear outfits on the daily. We see everyone wearing a stripe, rocking a blazer and these hats, well they're everywhere! You might not realise it, but you take more from the incredible French girls and their laid-back, edgy style than you think! I know I do...











I've gone for the absolute classic that is a stripe, also known as a Breton stripe. Did you know that traditionally this came from the French navy? Clearly a nautical pattern, but can be worn in so many different ways. I myself DO  NOT opt for a sea-like attire, you'll wont see an anchor in sight here! If you're looking for ways to dress at the beach, you've come to the wrong place. I've styled it to fit my usual, 90's grunge style instead.

I've donned the laid-back vibe keeping thoughts of the French in mind. I recently purchased these skater jeans from Asos, expecting them to be hideous on. Baggy jeans rarely fit my shape, but these are THE perfect style for me. They are the a mix between baggy but still feminine, being tighter on my (flat) bum than my legs. I've certainly become obsessed with these jeans, so much so that I've ordered more pairs... Skater jeans, you are my new love!

My usual accessories have come out to play. I wear my Raybans and baker boy hat nearly everyday, knowing I will never be as cool as Clémence Poésy, but a girl can try...
