The Parisian fashionista is chic yet effortless. She has this “je ne sais quoi” and The Parisian Flair knows the stylish secret. She is certainly a complicated woman. She is truly accomplished and holds this spontaneous nature. A born sartorial, she knows what to wear, when to wear it and the most important, when to get the perfect piece! She can get dressed in a heartbeat. She knows what she owns and what she needs or wants. Often, you’ll see that the French woman owns HER style. She knows what fits her and will buy the same brand forever or the same piece in different colors. She feels that a black leather jacket over a pair of skinny denim jeans with ballerinas is perfect for her. Usually, she is very cultured. Therefore, she understands the fashion cycle easily because fashion (la mode) is inspired by different medium. Curiosity is her motto! Even though she is a businesswoman, she has time to read the latest Vogue, she gets inspirations just by looking at the other women in the streets of Paris. She discusses trends with her friends over dinner. It doesn’t sound superficial when she does. It’s as influential and part of the French culture than an art exhibit and cinema. She goes shopping and it’s fun! Knowing what to look for and where to shop. The Parisian woman is very active, lovely, funny and charming. The Parisian Flair IS this portrayed woman. By reading and following The Parisian Flair, you’ll learn how to dress like a true Parisian, how to get its philosophy, what to buy and when. It takes time to truly embody the “je ne sais quoi” that everyone always mention. We are here to help.
