Ten Ways to Dress Like a Parisian

Inès de la Fressange’s book “Parisian Chic” has amazing advice on Parisian fashion. If you didnt know who she is, Inès was the first model to sign an exclusive modeling contract with an haute couture fashion house Chanel, muse to designers like Karl Lagerfeld in the 1980s. “You don’t need to be born in Paris to have Parisian style”, she declares on the first page.  Here is an adorable illustration about her rules.
