Act like a Mademoiselle

Dress like a Parisian: Paris street style

Everyone knows that Paris is the world fashion’s capital but not everyone knows that it’s off the catwalks that you get the best style inspiration.

We’ve sneaked into Paris street-style history to spot the outfits which will dress you like a Parisian. The fashion secret? Keep it simple, play with texture and shapes.

See down here how to recreate Paris standouts’ iconic outfits.

 

Audrey Hepburn paris

Here, a casual-chic outfit worn by Audrey Hepburn in a picturesque Montmartre. You can actually spot the Sacre Coeur on the background ;)

The Funny Face’s (1957) outfit is ideal for who loves sticking to relaxed fits and don’t dare too much. A total-black combination, of a turtleneck sweater and flat leather shoes, is enriched by a classic tan trench coat.

Keep the outfit fresh wearing an old fisherman-style raincoat, as Audrey’s, and House of Spring’s Portobello Bow Loafers, in black patent leather.

The lesson here: stick to neutrals, embrace flats.

 

Laetitia Casta

Laetitia Casta makes a statement of a simple and iconic little black dress wearing a white middle-length blazer on the top. No accessories needed, the “effortless” look is completed by a pair of stiletto.

Edit the look combining a little white dress with our daring pumps in black suede or, for an eccentric touch, our oceanic blue pumps.

The lesson here: Don’t overload your ensemble with too many pieces

 

Blake Lively

Belle de jour is Blake Lively in her bright green outfit walking along La Seine.

The summer wardrobe staple, a straw bag and hat, is revitalised by an ankle-length dress in loud hues.

Make an American in Paris’ look more metropolitan combining a snake leather effect clutch bag with our Riad sandals in tan calf leather

The lesson here: Look chic yet nonchalant
