  1. Buy basic items:

This is the foundation of the Parisian Style ; choosing classic and neutral colors creates a versatile and effortless look to your outfits. When shopping for basics remember to look for oversized clothes and not too short. Silky items are a great choice, also light and airy.

2. Wear Straight-Leg Jeans

High-waisted straight-leg jeans are one of the key pieces of the French wardrobe. And there’s a reason this silhouette is so popular: it’s flattering on everyone. Opting for very light denim or even white, beige, or pastel pink denim, is a great decision.

3. Remember less is more:

A Parisian woman has the capacity of looking elegant without appearing over-styled. Choosing minimalism is the right way to achieve it, stick to 1 to 2 colors in an outfit and simple accessories.

4. Play with silk scarves:
