We can still dress and look Parisian Chic in different pastel colors from creating contrasting ensembles to incorporating softer shades of colors and even brighter colors that will inspire your neutral colors of wardrobe to more fun, vibrant, and yet still chic and sophisticated.

Nothing wrong with choosing colors in our style of clothing while incorporating different pieces on any occasion, and style them in a chic and elegant way.  We don’t need to follow the stereotype of Parisian chic style dressing in neutral tones and boring colors all the time.

Parisian’s hairstyles are super chic, feminine, and stylish whether it be short or long hair.  French braid, half updo’s, chic and messy buns, and chignon hairstyles are among the most popular hairstyles that Parisians do on an occasional basis.  

Though, to tell you the truth, they don’t spend most of their time in front of the mirror perfecting their hairstyle. Clip In Hair Extensions are additional hair to add length and volume to their natural hair.  Sometimes they just leave their hair down looking like “I woke up like this” yet still look super chic, beautiful, and effortless.

As far as make-up is concerned, Parisians tend to keep things simple, natural, but most of all, flawless. Invest in a good foundation (look no further than top French designer brands), concealer, loose powder, and finishing powder to nail that airbrushed. 

Doll-like look that the Parisians have perfected over the years. A bold, red, statement lip is definitely the order of service if you want to add a little drama, and a precise feline flick on the eyes is essential for stealing the spotlight.



Clean lines, simple but powerful designs, staple pieces. Repeat these three things when picking out your outfits and you’ll have an excellent head-start. If we’ve learned anything from searching Parisian style, it’s that you want to make your style look as effortless as possible.

Swing your leather jacket over your shoulders and don’t look back. Show some skin in an unexpected, yet tasteful way; think sexy as opposed to skimpy. And as much money as you may have spent on your latest designer find, you don’t want to show it.

It goes without saying, but Parisian chic is all about a crisp, elegant heel. Unfortunately, this means never being able to run or be comfortable again, but a small sacrifice to pay for the covetable image, no?

There are actually ways to cheat with this – pack a small and discreet pair of ballet flats in your bag when you need to do a lot of walking/standing and change into your fabulous heels at the last minute. No one will know your secret!


One of the top giveaways when spotting a Parisian is their sheer love of accessories. Whether that’s a silk scarf wrapped pristinely around their neck, or a cute statement hat atop their head, accessories are definitely key.

No accessory is too big or too small, but the key here is not to over-crowd the accessory; let it stand out and let it do the talking without having to fight for attention on your body. In case you weren’t aware, simplicity really is the key when it comes to dressing like a chic Parisian.

Luxury Brands or Non-Branded?

Also, getting acquainted with all the top, luxury French brands from Chanel to Christian Dior to Louis Vuitton and more; there’s a reason they’re top of their game – just look at their latest runway collections for definitive proof.  Definitely worth saving all your pennies for!

You don’t have to re-mortgage the house to inject Parisian style into your life, but brushing up on what the latest season of Paris Fashion Week has showcased will definitely help you with your shopping and styling quests.  Although, most Parisiennes don’t typically shop at Louis Vuitton.  Based on my observation, they prefer not to wear branded bags with a logo.

Secondly, don’t underestimate smaller and more unique brands, either. Parisians have an obvious keen eye for style, but that also comes with having a great eye for a bargain too.

Shopping in quieter, less touristy, and less obvious places are bound to reward you with some great unique buys. If it’s quirky, one of a kind, yet totally en-vogue and swoon-worthy, you can bet that your favorite Parisian style icons will give you their seal of approval.

Over to you, which ones are your favorites?
