This is how Parisian women dress today: we imitate the ‘je ne sais quoi’ style of women who live in the city of love

It is one of the most in-demand styles in the world of fashion, but it is not always easy to apply it to our daily lives. We talk about the Parisian style, that’he ne sais quoi’ that we see in French women, that goes beyond clothes and that we envy so much.

Women like Jane Birkin or Brigitte Bardot have served as an example of style for future generations, creating, perhaps, the most repeated and imitated style in the world. It is a style that is intended to appear informal, but is not, composed mostly of basic garments combined strategically to achieve a special look.

There are three premises that we must follow if we want to start dressing this way:

1. Perfect basics: a white shirt, a trench coat, some good jeans… these items cannot be missing from your closet.

2. Trend yes, but in small doses: You can add some trendy clothing or accessories to your wardrobe to accompany your looks.

3. Accessories: Taste and elegance in accessories is part of the Parisian style. Bags and shoes will be your best ally.

4. Shades: Neutral and pastel colors are essential if we want to dress like a true Parisian.

From magasIN, And taking into account the advice mentioned above, we have created six perfect looks to blend in with you on the streets of the city of love and become a true Parisian wherever you are.
