Elegant. Effortless. Chic.
The Parisian woman is someone I aspire to dress and act like. They breathe an air of sophistication and float instead of walk.
While I was living abroad, I was chosen to be apart of the Chanel show team. So every March and October, I spent a couple of weeks living like a Parisian and I was surrounded by some of the most talented and glamorous people.
My favourite times were always people watching. During fashion week, in between the shows, I would sit for hours in the Tulleries Garden watching all the ‘it’ girls be papped. They always looked so effortlessly beautiful and stylish without looking overdone.
The Parisian woman is elegant, confident and effortlessly chic. They take beauty back the raw basics and work with what they have. No fake tan, no false lashes, just realness. They spend their money on luxurious skincare and facials because they wear barely any foundation and they want to look ‘undone.’ Their cheeks may have a touch of colour, which is usually a cream blush or bronzer they might also lightly smudge on their eyelids. A nude lip will finish off the barely there look.
Paris is where style was born and where many of the fashion houses call home; Celine, Isabel Marant, Chanel, Givenchy. Parisians are indeed superbly styled and put together yet they are also timeless and elegant. And above all, Parisians have mastered the art of effortless dressing with sophisticated and classic pieces that will last a lifetime when it comes to trends.
