P.S: this post is also 100% shop-able so you can get the look ASAP! OH La La!

NUMBER 1.

INVEST IN QUALITY BASICS: Parisian women are known for their simple yet elegant style, and it all starts with a few key pieces. Invest in high-quality basics like a well-fitting blazer, a classic trench coat, a white or black button-down shirt, a pair of straight-leg jeans, and a little black dress. These items will form the foundation of your Parisian-inspired wardrobe and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. The Dani Blouse and the Mary Jane Blouse are two perfectly timeless staples from Dara Senders to keep in your wardrobe. The Dani Blouse is a loosely fitted button down made of a silk like monochromatic pin stripe material that pairs well with any outfit. The Swarovski crystal buttons also give it a subtle sparkle that elevates this basic button down. The Mary-Jane Blouse is your classic Pusey-Bow blouse made from a luxurious chiffon bodice with satin cuffs and bow. This staple can also be worn with just about anything. Pair the two blouses with your favorite pair of jeans and flats for a sophisticated day to night look or wear under your favorite blazer with pair of heels for chic corporate or evening look. 

NUMBER 2.

STICK TO A SIMPLE OR NEUTRAL COLOR PALLET: Parisian women tend to favor neutral colors like black, white, navy, and beige. These colors are timeless and versatile, making them easy to mix and match. Plus, they provide the perfect backdrop for statement accessories like scarves and jewelry.

NUMBER 3.

CHOOSE TAILORED SILHOUETTES: Parisian women are all about tailoring and fit. Look for pieces that fit you well and flatter your body type. Avoid anything too tight or too loose, and opt for classic silhouettes like A-line skirts, straight-leg pants, and tailored blazers. Just like the Dani & Mary Jane blouses above our Dani Blazer or Dani Satin Blazer provides a classically chic silhouette and can be worn with anything from a crisp white tshirt, a simple turtleneck or bodysuit underneath to allow the blazer to do all the talking.

NUMBER 4.

EMBRACE ACCESSORIES: Accessories are key to achieving that quintessential Parisian look. A silk scarf, a statement necklace, a structured handbag, a chic hat and a pair of sleek sunglasses can elevate even the simplest outfit. Just be sure to keep it simple and avoid going overboard. With that said, Parisians do like to wear simple outfits with a popping accessory. Whether it be full of color or sparkle. Just don't mix both for risk of looking too lavish! The perfect combination of colorful and sparkly without overdoing it would be our Bowie beret & gloves set. Yes, you heard us; a beret. The French to wear them. They even wear ours often. The myth that a true French person or Parisien would never be seen in one is a major myth. It just depends on how they are worn and what they are worn with. Our Bowie set adds that special touch of chic sparkle without being too much. In fact, its just enough sparkle to make all those around you walking down Rue de Rivolli smile.

NUMBER 5.

DON'T FORGET ABOUT SHOES: Parisian women are always on the go, so comfortable yet stylish shoes are a must. Opt for classic styles like ballet flats, loafers, ankle boots, and sneakers. Avoid anything too flashy or overly trendy.
Some of our favorites are pictured below from FitFlop, Clarks, French Sole and Rebecca Minkoff.

     

     

     

    In conclusion, dressing like a Parisian woman is all about embracing simplicity, quality, and elegance. Stick to a neutral color palette, invest in quality basics, choose tailored silhouettes, embrace accessories, and don't forget about comfortable yet stylish shoes. With these tips in mind, you'll be on your way to achieving that effortless French-girl style in no time.
