With all eyes in the fashion world firmly planted on Paris Fashion Week this week, it makes sense for a little bit of that French chic vibe to rub off and have us all wanting to reach for the Chanel flapover purse and Isabel Marant ankle booties! French style is about intelligent dressing – the type where most would look like they’ve been planning their outfit for weeks, but with the French, it comes off looking completely effortless – a skill which is so hard to perfect. But if you take your cue from style icons such as Paris Vogue‘s Carine Roitfeld, actress Audrey Tatou and fashionista Lou Doillon, you’ll be working it like a pro in no time. Just think black and white, Little Black Dresses, classic cuts, “less is more” and portraying an underlying sexiness. Très bien!
