How To Look Parisian...Even If You're Not

Hrishitaa Sharma , 18 Nov 2016

What is it about Parisian girls that makes them appear so damn chic? They can wear something as basic as a black turtleneck and make it look more elegant than a Valentino ball gown. If only we could all adopt that non-chalant style and minimalistic beauty. Funnily enough, one style icon that comes to mind when pulling off that je ne sais quoi is “It” girl Alexa Chung, despite being born in the UK. Perhaps, that is why Longchamp chose to feature the brit in their Autumn 2016 ad campaign film set in Paris. Could this mean there’s hope for the rest of us?

Here, we break down street-style from the city of love:

1. Messy, just-rolled-out-of-bed hair.

2. A discreet cat eye (with just a small, gentle flick of your liquid liner).

3. A cloche hat to throw on with any #ootd…oh, this old thing?

4. A chic, well-tailored jacket that looks expensive (but doesn’t have to be).

5. Fishnet stockings for that come-hither, sex-kitten vibe.
