5 Classic Fashion Tips From Real Parisians That’ll Have You Chic In No Time
Here’s a little quiz for you: What is the capital of love, fashion, good food and the most stylish people in the world?
If you answered Paris, you are right!
This capital city of France is not only famous for its beautiful architecture, romantic scenery and exquisite cuisine, but the city’s women there really know how to dress.
And now, I am going to present you five excellent fashion tips I managed to get from real Parisians!
Keep these in mind every time you stand in front of your wardrobe, and don’t forget being femme fatale doesn’t require a lot of money – it is all about how you present yourself!
1. Never follow trends blindly.
So, one of the first things a Parisian will advise you to do is never follow various trends blindly.
It is a lot better to find your unique sense of style and get clothing that will accentuate it.
In fact, runway fashion is more like a showpiece, not a daily outfit.
Therefore, you should always find those one or two pieces from the newest collection that could be worn during many coming seasons. So – think classics, never buy clothing that will be “on” for one season, and never forget your style.
2. Always get fitted clothing.
I have never seen a French woman with oversized, loose and baggy clothing.
She always looks perfectly well in everything she wears, and that is what you should keep in mind as well.
Real French women wear clothes that flatter their bodies. Regardless of trends, they always look like a million bucks.
And although it might be hard to find clothing that magically fits you well instantly, you should find a local tailor and become his customer.
With the help of a professional, you will always be able to look gorgeous, every clothing piece will look perfect on you, and you will never leave the store without that perfect dress you wanted to buy.
3. Think neutral.
Let’s talk about colors.
Usually, the best way to win a perfect look for French women is to dress only in neutral color and sometimes match it with bright color pieces or accessories.
The best color palette would be all blacks, whites, grays and navy.
These suit every woman’s complexion and match perfectly together! So, when you are shopping, keep these colors in mind, and don’t forget to own a few colorful pieces to create more visual interest in your look.
4. Shop for quality, not quantity.
High-quality clothing not only will keep you beautiful for longer, but it will also create a very chic and expensive look all Parisian women have.
Cheap clothing you bought for a few dollars will never do this trick.
So, as the French would say, choose quality over quantity. It is better to buy one good pair of black trousers you can wear for many different occasions than a bunch of cheap jeans in various colors.
If it is a problem for you to pay more for clothing, you can always find ways how to deal with that.
First of all, don’t always head to expensive designer stores. Sometimes even your local department stores can offer a pretty great assortment of high-quality clothes.
Moreover, Kohl’s’ online store or Target coupons can be a solution to shop for quality without paying too much. Voila!
5. Accessorize minimally.
And finally, really fashionable Parisians never wear more than two different accessories on one outfit.
It can either be a ring and a necklace or earring with a bracelet and so on.
Moreover, Coco Chanel said every time you leave the house, you should always remove one item from your ensemble.
Keep this rule in your mind and you will never overdo your look again! Just pick either one strong or two smaller pieces, and you will look fabulous!
