Dracula shoulder draping, ineffable chic, a certain je ne sais quoi. How do French women nail it so wonderfully every single time? Then there’s French editor chic – especially Vogue magazines Emmanuelle Alt…I mean, I can’t cope.
Slick slimline jeans, power shoulders for days, hair that hangs just so but what’s interesting is that a lot of her looks and french women at large for that matter contain the basics – the fashion fundamentals. So if you ask me it’s a super easy one to replicate and you can do it on the cheap with thrift shopping, leaving more money for champagne et fromage. Just le saying!
I took my gorgeous model Jessica to the Salvos and here’s what we found
White distressed skinny jeans $10
White worn in tee $5
[Tip: Keeping the base pieces to the same color creates a longer leaner silhouette]
Faux fur vest $25
Men’s military inspired blazer $30
[In the right cut mens jackets can look fabulous on ladies, being slightly bigger allows you to get that oh so french shoulder drape effect. Look for pieces with gold buttons – that adds to the expensive illusion]
Black stillettos $10
[I love a pointed toe to add subtle yet striking style]
Black oversized shades $5
Diamantee ring $5
TOTAL OUTFIT COST: $102
