There are a few staples that can instantly change your wardrobe to the perfectly Parisian wardrobe. These fundamental pieces will give you this timeless chic look and have you dressed like the iconic French girl in no time!
Here are my 5 key-pieces for that perfectly Parisian wardrobe:
1.The Tie-Neck Blouse
As mentioned in my post “How to Get a Parisian Fall Wardrobe”, the occasional white blouse is an essential staples that you can wear year round. This long-sleeve sheer tie-neck blouse from Zara is perfect for fall layers! You can layer it with a sleeveless cardigan as shown here, under a sleeveless dress or with a camisole.
2. The Biker Leather Jacket
This faux-leather black biker jacket is so versatile. You can wear it with a dress or simply wear it on the weekends with your skinny jeans. It gives any classic dresses a more modern and street style look. I love the mix of the leather with the tweed texture. Complete your effortless outfit with accessories like a chain necklace and polka dots tights.
3. The Short Black Skirt
French women do like showing a little bit of skin! Nothing more sexy than wearing a short or pencil skirt with a long cardigan or oversized structured jacket (I plan on blogging about this look next month). You can easily dress this outfit for colder temperatures with lace or opaque tights and flat ankle boots.
4. The Oversized Wool Scarf
Oversized wool and pashmina scarves are all the rage this fall. It’s not such a huge trend in France as everyone including men always walk in the streets of Paris with a scarf on. I own about every neutral color there is: black, grey, camel but I do have a few plaid ones that I can’t wait to share with you as we get closer to the holidays.
5. The Everyday Flat
Last but not least, every French girl owns a nice pair of flats. Extreme comfort is always number one on our list. The best thing about ballet flats is they go with about every look. I still adore my Tory Burch black flats that I purchased a few years ago. Paired with a beautiful lace pattern tights, you are sure to add a chic statement to any outfit!
