Bellefleur Lingerie Book Club: PARISIAN CHIC: A Style Guide by Ines del la Pressange. Discussion Two.

Let's talk basics.  Page twenty-three says that dressing like a Parisian is simple.  The chic Parisian look focuses on staples that allow you to be prepared for anything and always look put together.  In this chapter Ines reveals the "Magnificent Seven":

1. Blazer
2. Trench
3. Tank Top
4. Navy Sweater
5. Little Black Dress
6. Jeans
7. Leather Jacket

Here are a few of our favorite style tips on each:

1.  Blazer- Push back or roll up the sleeves- the ultimate "easy chic" statement. Even better when the lining is a different color.
2. Trench- Never buckle the belt properly like a good girl. tie it in front or behind with the buckle hanging loose. This is VERY Parisian.
3. Tank Top- Keep it simple: black, gray, white, navy, and khaki.
4. Navy Sweater- Black sweaters are just too easy. Pair with flat shoes for an "easy cool" look.
5. Little Black Dress- Abstract, universal, prepared for anything.
6. Jeans- Dress them up at night with a silver sequined jacket.
7. Leather Jacket- Pair with a chiffon dress for a transforming touch.

What do you think of her list?  Do you have your own list of basics or key items every woman should have in their wardrobe?

We are loving some easy this read is to pick up and turn to any chapter.  She has such fabulous tips on perfume and decorating your home as well.  We hope you all are enjoying it as much as we are!

  1. I love all the tiny yet oh so important details in her outfits and key basics. I think this is what makes her style so simple and classic, yet so incredibly stylish. I feel like my style is somewhat different, but I definitely think I pay attention to the tiny details in the outfits I put together. I loved reading her tips and want to take her advice and blend it with my every day basics!
