Today Paris is poised to inspire our #StreetStyle wardrobe. At this time of year our French friends choose a palette of black, beige, brown, purple and grey for their everyday street style staples.
Glitz and sparkle are a definite no. Instead the preferred look for ladies is sleek, refined and elegantly tailored, giving the famed streamlined French silhouette. Makeup is always understated with a ‘less is more’ approach, even when it comes to red lipstick!
For Parisian men attention to detail is key, along with tailored styling and classic lines. For a more casual look, quality fabrics and chic basics are a must.
Again, every detail matters, the sunglasses you choose, the brand of scarf for colder weather, the tailoring of your jacket, the finish and style of your shoes.
So you may ask, what is the essence of French street style? ‘It is classic, minimalist and elegant,’ says Sarah, Social Media Expert from Paris.
