Parisian Style, Part 1: The Blazer

I picked up Parisian Chic, by Ines de la Fressange last April and keep going back to it, like a textbook. So much amazing outfit inspiration and tips and tricks for dressing French (pretty much my goal in life.)

One of my favorite parts of the book is Chapter Two, The Not-so-Basics.  She refers to these pieces as the “Magnificent Seven.”  The non-negotiable items that everyone must own, the essentials to chic, Parisian Style.  I thought it would be fun to do a little series around each of these items.  The first Not-so-Basic?  The Blazer! She advises with going with a masculine style, in a classic shade like navy or black… and pairing it with your most feminine + fun pieces.  Below are a few favorites of mine – and how to wear them.

I really believe that everyone should own a copy of Parisian Chic.  Pick one up for yourself, for your sister, for your best friend.  It’s so worth it.  In the meantime, on Friday, we’ll discuss Not-so-Basic #2… The Trench!
