Parisian style is joyful, flirty, and fun. Luckily, you don’t have to live in Paris to get the je ne sais quoi of French style. All you have to do is to have a little bit of fun with your look. It’s that little wink that really makes the difference - here’s how to get the look:
1. Start with the quintessentially Parisian top - a navy and white bateau top featuring horizontal stripes. Extra bonus? The red heart detail that makes this top shine.
2. Add simple pops of color - a pair of bright green shorts and a sunny yellow sweater. Why do these colors work? Yellow, green, and blue are naturally complementary colors, as they sit next to each other on the color wheel.
3. Finish off the look with cheeky accessories - a pair of black sunglasses with a red bow, a bright blue cross-body bag with metal tips, and a pair of black and tan sandals that go with whatever color you’re wearing.
