How to be Parisian

by Marissa Whittle

Our Le Marais collection inspired by French dressing, that whimsical, easy-breezy effortless style that looks so put together, has got us love-struck on the quintessential Parisian art of being a woman.

We grabbed the Caroline de Maigret’s book ‘How to be Parisian, wherever you are’ and soaked up all there is to know, from fashion, humour, habits and love.

How to be Parisian

Here are our favourites:

1. Make it look easy. Everything you do should seem effortless and graceful.

2.Take a deep breath and keep it simple.

3.Take time to take your own time, because nobody’s going to do it for you.

4.Convince yourself that you’re not afraid of ageing.

5.You need one signature item, the one you wear to feel strong.

6.If you own only one sweater, make sure it’s cashmere.

7.Jeans, anytime, anywhere and anyway.

8.The handbag is not an accessory, it’s your home.

9.Less is definitely more.

10.Treat yourself whether it be flowers, aromatherapy massage, a rare vintage piece or a nice candle. You deserve it.

Oversized shirts, handwritten sleeve detail, neck ties and star print… we are obsessed with a French woman’s ease of fashion.
