There’s just something about French women - they’re put together, sexy, and completely cool. Their brand of effortless style - that je ne sais quoi - is a mix of sharp silhouettes, subtle detailing, and killer accessories. But how do you get Parisian cool girl chic right? The key is to pair quality pieces with interesting details. Nothing that screams "look at me," but pieces that grow more fascinating on closer inspection. Case in point? These leather booties, which feature an eye-catching set of hardware. Or this double breasted mohair coat, highlighted with a deeply gorgeous ombre coloring.
