Parisian Chic


What is it about French style that’s so simple and effortless? I’ve been trying to figure out the secret to French style for years despite the fact that I’m European. Simply put, there’s something about how French women dress that’s completely understated and yet always chic and the right amount of trendy.

Parisian Chic

One thing I’ve learned is that oftentimes it’s all about confidence. I once heard that “French women dress up with elegance and assurance, never to be seen. It’s the attitude that makes the statement.” I guess that’s exactly why it is inspiring in all ways. For today’s look that is what I kept in mind—confidence. I’m wearing a pair of vinyl pants, a comfy knit sweater, paired with snake-print booties and a beret to complete the look. Even though this ensemble is rather edgy I feel like the beret gives the entire look a softer feel, wouldn’t you agree?!

    I think french style is so cute! Here in Sweden a lot of people in their 20โ€™s have started wearing more classic pieces, a little bit like the style in Paris!

    I think, a beret can give an outfit that Parisian vibe but I agree with you that confidence is the key. You look absolutely gorgeous in this outfit, Vanessa. Love this white sweater on you. Happy Wednesday babe. xx

    This is such a great look, for anywhere really. I love the vinyl pants, too! I always think of Tams and berets, also stripes when I think of Frenchy vibes to wear.

    I love the effortlessness of French style. Something I’d love to master at some point in life, and certainly something you’ve mastered with this ensemble. Love those pants.
