How to look Parisian this Spring

Hi Everyone,

So happy to be writing that the days of grunge and sloppy wear are truly over.

This Spring sees us women going out looking our very best. Particularly if you wish to remotely  replicate that effortless Parisian chic which the city’s woman are famous for.

The time has come to invest in beautiful floaty fabrics that bring out our silhouettes. Focus on colour and femininity. Pretty palazzo pants are also a staple for every fashion conscious woman this Spring. Get your pattern fix now as there is plenty of it. Orange is a must have in your wardrobe just now. A colour that will carry through into next Autumn/Winter as well.

Todays post showcases three outfits that will make anyone look wonderfully Parisian this Spring. They are currently all available on the La-Tienda website or in store (La Tienda,  Zürcherstrasse 55, 8142 Uitikon).

How to look Parisian this Spring

  1. The pretty dress with scarf

Dresses should be feminine yet dramatic at the same time. The orange dress pictured above does just that with the bold asymmetric black pattern running through it.

Purposefully teamed with a scarf doing softer colours to soften the overall picture.

The shoes are slingback – a simple must have this coming Spring.

2. Comfort with Parisian chic in one

As mentioned above palazzo pants will be found in every fashion conscious woman’s wardrobe this Spring. You might already own a pair. otherwise now is certainly the time to invest.

I’ve fallen in love with this palazzo pant and top set with matching patterns yet contrasting colours.

Tip: if you feel orange doesn’t suit you wear a cream or grey top with the skirt and then simply sling the orange over the shoulders for a pop of colour:

Wishing you lots of fun creating your own Parisian chic this Spring.
