Like in Paris
This was one of my most frequent outfits while living in Paris. You’ve no idea how much I miss it! Its sunsets, smells, getting lost in Ile de La Cité and visiting its many wonderful museums any day of the week… I have so many memories of this romantic city… but what I want to talk to you about today is a look that’s “très chic”. I wanted to talk to you about my favorite combination while I was there. The outfit is black and white and I give it a touch of color with accessories. Sometimes I matched it with black leather leggings and other with skirts like this one, sometimes with high heels or oxfords. However, my must for this outfit was a black tie over a white shirt.
Women’s ties have been used since the 20s and I particularly think they’re essential for anyone’s wardrobe. This accessory gives a very special touch to any style. I love that masculine and elegant feel that ties give to outfits. And whatever happens, it’ll never go out of style.
I must also mention hats; they have become the must-have for every day due to their versatility and their unusual ability to adapt to any style and occasion.
Gone is the phrase “Hats don’t look good on me” (I used to say it a lot!) *laughs*. The thing is, there’re so many styles that if you look hard enough, you’ll find the perfect one for the shape of your face, your head, your hairstyle, your height… I promise you, this timeless accessory will become the perfect ally in urban looks and you’ll never want to go without it again!
It’s time to find the one that suits you best and give a special touch to your urban looks. Dare to try something different!
