How to be Parisian

Being Parisian is not about being a French woman or being born in Paris at all. It’s just about being a real woman. The woman who is always in touch with her sensuality. Being alluring. Being elegant. Being chic. Today I wanted to talk to you about how to be Parisian wherever you are. But most importantly, how to be Parisian in real life.

Despite all the rumour, being Parisian is actually very easy. The main goal is to keep your style as effortless and attractive as possible. Sure, there are some golden rules, that all French women agree on.

Elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered. – Giorgio Armani

Less is more

If less is more, then brilliant basics are the key to a great look. You won’t wear more than two colours at the same time. No over accessorising. If you wear large earrings or a statement necklace, that should be it. Only one piece at a time.

Sophistication, simplicity and chic are the main words that come to mind when thinking of the Parisian style.

Red lipstick

French women are truly good at knowing how the proper style should look like. For example, your purse should match your shoes, but not always. That’s the trick. Or French women have always and will always wear red lips. Sure, the shades can be different – lighter or darker, based on the season or the mood. But always red.

I imposed black; it still going strong today, for black wipes out everything else around. – Coco Chanel

How to be Parisian?

What can be more Parisian than a red lipstick or a little black dress? There is actually one trend that will make you feel so French and it’s the major trend of the season – gingham. You can literally see it everywhere and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. So if you ask me – How to be Parisian wherever you are? I’ll get you covered at least for this season.

So to create a perfect Parisian look all you need is a gingham ruffle romper, a straw hat and a pop of colour – a red lipstick. So chic and feminine, isn’t it? And there is no need for accessories at all. Your main accessory is your smile.

    Parisian style is one that I’ve always coveted! There’s a special kind of sophistication about it, yet still trendy chic. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it before this post, but now I understand it better after you explained it. Gingham definitely works for Parisian style!
