Parisian Chic by Ines de la Fressange

Images + Post By: | April 25, 201123 Comments

“Dress like a Parisian” may be the title of the first chapter in this enchanting book written by French style icon Ines de la Fressange, but rather than issuing an imperious edict, Ines shares with the reader her “fashion should be fun” philosophy with the wit and charm for which she is internationally beloved. Ines shares her personal tips for living with style gleaned from decades in the fashion industry and, not only does she offer specific pointers on how to dress like a Parisian, including how to mix affordable basics with high-fashion, but she pokes vigorous holes in the fashion conceits that drive so many modern women to strive for the unattainable, proclaiming, for example, that “The Parisian never fights to be the first with the latest high-priced It bag, especially not if it’s waiting list only (so vulgar…)  “Eschewing the too short, too tight, and the heels too high, Ines says “The secret to great style is to feel good in what you wear.” “Don’t be a fashion victim. Always ask yourself: ‘If I buy this will I want to wear it tonight?’ If the answer is ‘non’, or ‘I’ll wear it around the house’ or ‘Maybe one day, to a party, you never know’ it’s time to leave the store, and fast.”  “Nothing looks worse than a girl tottering about on unimaginable heels! The key to sex appeal is a feline walk, not a precarious wobble.” We couldn’t agree more! Meet this fabulous woman tomorrow in NYC – all the details (plus the RSVP address) after the jump…….
