It remains an irrefutable (albeit slightly painful) fact that Parisians possess a je ne sais quoi—and particularly when it comes to their style. Which is why anyone who does not hail from Paris would do well to read Parisian Chic: A Style Guide. Written by timeless style maven Inès de la Fressange, it offers useful tips on how to adopt that effortless Parisian style without spending loads on expensive clothes, including a handful of items you must own. It even serves as a pseudo tour guide to Paris, with the vital spots to see, meet, and shop in France’s bustling capital. Buy it for yourself, peruse it, ingest it, inhale it, absorb it. And then buy it for everyone else you know.
