While singing “La vie en rose” alone in your house, you go to your closet and take out the most Parisian-looking item you have. But when your beret looks more like a beanie than an actual beret, you sit down in front of your closet and wonder, “How do the Parisians do it?” As the Parisians themselves say, “Less is more, and simple is delicate.” Not trying too hard is key for this look because whether you admit it or not, there is something about the Parisian aesthetic that makes their style incredibly definitive and effortlessly chic. With some key pieces at hand, we have created a guide for you to follow, on how not to over do it when recreating the most beloved styles from your favorite Parisian girls.
