Get The Parisian Look

Paris is often
nicknamed the ‘fashion capital of the world’ and if you’ve been
to the beautiful City of Light yourself, it’s easy to see why. If,
on the other hand, you have never been to the romantic city or
experienced the marvellous Paris Fashion Week, there is no reason why
you can’t get the look of a fabulously stylish Parisian using the
best of the British high street.
The Parisian look
is all about class, traditional and timeless elegance, and effortless
style. It’s easy to pull off if you follow these basic guidelines
and look to some of France’s biggest stars for inspiration. Audrey
Tautou, Brigitte Bardot and Marion Cotillard are such women who ooze
sophistication and embody the very essence of Parisian chic.
Whether you’re
after petite or plus size clothing available in the UK,
Parisian fashion can flatter any figure with its fitted jackets,
smart boots and figure hugging dresses.
Clothes
To achieve the look, the clothes you wear
are obviously vital. Smart button down shirts can be teamed with
fitted knee length skirts for a look that is svelte and smooth.
Striped or monochrome print dresses can
make a desirable edition to any Parisian wardrobe and can offer a
versatile option to those with busy schedules and those who have to
dash between work and play. If you’re spending your days in board
meetings and evenings wining and dining in the city, achieving that
Champs Elysees look doesn’t have to be a challenge.
Blazers and fitted jackets are great
additions to the trend, and can be draped over the shoulders for a
feminine and girly edge.
By day, heels should be kept to a
minimum. By night the bar can be raised, but make sure you can walk
in your chosen pair. Nothing should stop you from getting from your
shopping trip at the Galeries
Lafayette
 to
the Théâtre des
Abbesses
in time for your
date.
Don’t forget to accessorize with a silk
scarf or stylish belt to complete the look and give it a personal
touch.
Hair
and Makeup
The key to achieving Parisian beauty is
to opt for a look which is minimal and somewhat barefaced. A subtle
concealer or foundation is ideal, providing the shades match your
skin tone perfectly.
A sleek mascara can add even more class
to the look, as can a hint of blush or splash of lip colour. Be wary
of going overboard by trying a bit of everything at once. A minimal
palette is optimum and any bright colours should complement the
clothes you’ve chosen.
When it comes to your hair, natural and
seemingly effortless beauty is the secret once again. Keep your hair
loose and tussled. Think tumbling locks rather than being restricted
in a tight pony tail or poker straight.
