Parisian Chic

Inès de la Fressange

In a recent article for the Guardian's online Fashion Blog, former model Inès de la Fressange revealed her top five items to give a wardrobe a French make over. Here's how to add Inès' effortless sense of style to your look...

A Denim Shirt
"A few years ago, I would have said a white shirt, but that's boring now. If you have an uptight, bourgeois outfit, a denim shirt can change that, mess with it.  I like to mix up the expensive and not too expensive."

Ballerina Flats
"Sensuality doesn't come from heels – especially if you can't walk in them!" 

"I can't stand those ones with too much stretch. You need a dark one that you don't wash – you dry clean them."

A Jacket
"It should be tiny to make things sweeter. I often shop in the H&M's boy's department or the French store, Soeur, for teenage girls. Their jackets are narrow and cropped. That's what makes them feminine." 

A Navy Sweater
"This is universal – for men, women and children.  Navy will always be beautiful, whether you buy it at Uniqlo or Céline."
