How to Dress Like a Parisian With the Help of a White Button-UpTo dress like a Parisian: the timeless and ultimate sartorial goal. But accomplishing it seems a mystery. If one thing's for sure, there's a lot more to it than facetiously throwing on a beret. So how do you do it? Here, we break it down to a few easy tips with the help of Paris street style standouts and white button-up shirts galore (because, you know, that's kinda our thing). The main takeaways: stick to neutrals, embrace flats, and when all else fails, WEAR WHITE! ---------- Less Is More When it comes to Parisian dressing, the simpler the better. Keep accessories to a minimum and don't overload your ensemble with too many pieces. Part of the appeal of French style is that it looks so effortless. ----------
Go for Relaxed SilhouettesClothing that's too form-fitting or structured has no place in the French woman's wardrobe. Give your style a carefree touch by sticking to relaxed fits without looking too baggy. ---------- The Lower the Heel, the Better Flats are key. Rarely will you catch a Parisian woman strutting in 6-inch heels on the daily (unless it's fashion week). How else would they survive running around those cobblestone streets? ---------- Bring on the Shades A pair of oversized sunnies gives any outfit a chic and elegant air. ---------- Don't Fear Menswear Just because their style rules are simple doesn't mean that Parisian women are afraid to take a risk. Tackle blazers, trousers, suits and co-ords for a classic, tailored look. ---------- Perfect the Bedhead Now that you know how to assemble the ultimate French ensemble, top it off with the hairstyle Parisian women wear best: the bedhead. Look chic yet nonchalant, with the perfect "I woke up like this" flair.
