Do you also feel frustrated when you see how effortless french women look? It's as if they didn't even take a minute to think what they would wear today, yet they look fabulously chic, even when wearing just jeans and a t-shirt. Well, that my friends, is called parisian chic :)
It's actually quite simple and that's why French style icon Ines de la Fressange wrote this book to give you a few tips she's learned throughout her life as a model, mom and parisian: "No complete outfits. Don't look "rich". Wear two scarves. Make sure you own the following: a man's blazer, a trench coat, a navy sweater, a tank top, a little black dress, jeans and a leather jacket. And Converse sneakers. And flats: "Some people think that shoes are ladders. No man is going to say, 'I would love you so much more if you were 10cm taller.' Women are suffering, you know. Elegance is about feeling nice."
All the photos you see above are from her book, which mostly includes photos of Ines and her 16 year-old daughter, Nine d'Urso, who I find absolutely gorgeous. Her hairdo and look is so laid back, which I know she's inherited from her mom. You might already know all the advice she's giving in the book, but it's a nice reminder :)
