French women know how to dress elegant without overdoing it. This is mystifying to me because I love everything in excess. When it comes to fashion I love bright colors and big accessories. But, you know sometimes if not most times, less is always more. French women exude an effortless sense of style that I admire. I am finding this minimalist approach to fashion to be satisfying and a perfect match for my busy lifestyle. Here are five steps to Parisian effortless elegance that will help you obtain that Parisian je ne sais quoi!
5 Steps to Parisian Effortless Elegance
- Chose staples over trends. Select pieces that suit your body type and is tailored well. They may seem boring to some, but these staple pieces paired well with any seasonal piece and really help you stand out.
- Save money and buy quality. Don’t get me wrong I love a good bargain and sales excite me, but there are times you shouldn’t settle. When you invest in a higher quality item, you will continue to use it year after year.
- Simply your closet. Don’t let your closet overwhelm you. Clear it of pieces that no longer serve you. When you walk into your closet, let your pieces inspire you, not overwhelm you. This will help you choose a look that will amplify the end result effortlessly.
- Understated vs Loud. There is beauty in choosing a garment that has a subtly to it. Don’t let the your clothes wear you; but, rather let yourself shine in your clothes.
- The perfect blend of high and low. Not everything in your wardrobe needs to be high-end. Along with your staple wardrobe pieces incorporate fun seasonal pieces to add personality to your look.
Allow your clothes to be the perfect backdrop for your personality, beauty, and vibe. These are the qualities about us we want to shine. Sticking to the basics, putting effort into what you wear (quality and fit) and finding what works and wearing it regularly will help you nail that Parisian effortless elegance.
