Parisian women always look so incredibly chic. What is their secret?
Whether you’re watching a movie or a video or simply browsing the internet, Parisian women are always so glamourous. Off to the corner store for bread? You’ll see her primed with a dash of red lipstick and her kitten heels? Walking around with her children in the park? She’ll be ensconced in a fabulous shawl with her beret and stylish sneakers. Pick any occasion, she will be ready and fabulous!
Paris is and has been the center of “la mode” for decades. This city has been an inspiration for painters, musicians, fashion designers and writers. Whether it’s the enchanting architecture, the fabulous food and wine, the well manicured parks or the nonchalant manner of the residents, it is charming and alluring.
Today I wanted to explore the Parisian woman. How does she do it? What gives her that extra ‘je ne se qois’? It’s fascinating. And while we may not be able to completely change our lifestyles and our wardrobes to emulate ‘La Parisienne’, we can try to steal a few simple ideas and incorporate them into our day-to-day wardrobes.
Let’s start with the simplest of all. The accessories! You will never see a Parisian woman walk out of the house without even the smallest accessory. An example would be a scarf, a sexy red lip, a fabulous conversation piece of jewelry, a belt that accents the outfit, a hat to complete the look.
Best accessory is a scarf! Every woman should own a couple of scarves and should not leave the house without one. A scarf will add that extra detail and enhance that très chic look.

I also wanted to give the option of a more minimal look and chose a black tuxedo style jacket with the same outfit.
Thank you ladies and please send me your Parisian look, I’d love to post it on my blog.
