Is there anything more perfect than a button-down shirt, blazer, and skinny jeans? I think not. It’s the classic, yet sophisticated style that women everywhere – French girls included – rock on the chicest streets. The art of looking chic is easy and while I love the usual simple pieces, I love adding a little flair to the mix. Rather than pairing denim on denim with sneakers opt for bright white pumps (even in the winter) or lace-up leather pants for casual wear. A leather blazer with studs is tres chic when compared to a school boy blazer and menswear inspired loafers are flat out chic in lieu of pumps. This is what I call the updated classic – taking your favorite pieces and adding some flair. See below for my favorite pieces to give you the classic style you want with a happy dose of personality or check out my Pinterest board dedicated to killer style.
