The hardest part of mastering the Parisian style, in my opinion, is the way they accessorize. They always know when to add a piece of accessory to their outfit and when to avoid it.
As a rule of thumb, I would say try to limit your accessories to 1-3 pieces including bags, hats, scarves, and jewelry. And even those pieces should be classic, and minimalistic. No statement accessories!
Parisian style is all about being classic and minimalistic, right? Well, not exactly. You can wear trends too as long as they aren’t complete opposites to French style. Wear 80 percent timeless pieces and 20 percent trends for a balanced look!
French women aren’t opposed to vintage clothing and hand-me-downs from grandma. The clothes grandma wore are still relevant today because Parisian fashion is built on classic, timeless, and most importantly QUALITY pieces.
8. Silk Scarf
The silk scarf (or vegan silk scarf) is the quickest way to make your outfit more French-like. It looks so chic and sophisticated, and it literally takes one minute to add.
Bonus: it’s also an excellent way to keep your neck warm and protected when you have a cold.
A beret is such a classic and unique French accessory. And it’s not at all as hard to pull it off as it seems. Definitely give it a try if you want to look more Parisian!
10. Little Black Ensemble
What’s even better than a little black dress? A black turtleneck with a black midi skirt. This way you also have the opportunity to mix and match them with other items from your wardrobe. But pairing them together looks just like a classic black dress. Genius!
