Ah the Parisian – the well-known epitome of effortless chic.
Elegant, feminine and a sophisticated taste – these words come to mind to describe her.
She knows what flatters her body type (any type is the beautiful type), wears hardly any makeup (as she is comfortable as she is) and owns many pairs of ballet flats (she combines comfort and fashion).
Coco Chanel once famously whispered “fashion fades and only style remains”.
This is true!
How many times have you bought something ‘on-trend’, only for a week later to need the next big thing, then the next – it is an exhausting race to try to keep up with!
I say, invest in classic, timeless and ‘you’ pieces – items that you know you will love and wear years down the track! French women know this too!
So please, be like the Parisian:
- Know you are beautiful – inside and out (cheesy but true!)
- Never rely on a ‘makeup mask’ – see point above
- Always be comfortable with whatever you wear – no itchy jumpers!
- Don’t invest too much time or money into trends – they come and they go – your personal style always remains!
