Living in Paris has definitely affected my personal style – being surrounded by effortlessly chic women AND men at all times has meant upping the ante! “Casual” in Paris means something very different to “casual” everywhere else. Not only is Parisian casual more elegant, it’s also more flattering…This is the city to make the style transition from student to professional. Learning to shop for quality pieces in less volume rather than following the weekly trends that overwhelm in cities like London and NY.
Simplicity is key; choosing items that you’re able to mix and match with ease, but are also stand-alone pieces. Mixing tailoring with knits and layers and a great pair of shoes!
So, here are my favourite looks from the Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear collections; block colours, floaty prints, white on white, and tailoring, tailoring, tailoring.
