A brand-new book of fashion secrets by New York Times best-selling author, model, and Parisienne extraordinaire, Ines de la Fressange.
Ines de la Fressange's personal style is chic yet relaxed in every situation. While a navy-and-white- striped nautical top with slim, cropped jeans and flats is a classic French look, it's harder to pinpoint how Parisians unfailingly blend elegance and allure with such ease. In this sequel to her best seller Parisian Chic, the world's favorite style icon demonstrates how to achieve her quintessentially Parisian look throughout the year.
Her style secrets start with the building blocks of wardrobe staples--an LBD that can be dressed up or down, timeless riding boots you'll wear for a lifetime, or the perfect pair of jeans--which she combines with panache to suit every situation, adding seasonal items like costume bangles, a top in this season's on-trend color, or the right shade of lip color.
"Parisian Chic Look Book is a wakeup call to the fashion obsessed as well as something that young women who are just starting to build a wardrobe might benefit from. This is not a fashion bible nor is it a DO's and DON'Ts kind of book as its appeal is basic yet specific so if you believe that "les femmes Francaise" are about as chic as it gets, then hurry on down and grab up a copy to take home."--New York Journal of Books "Former Chanel model and the epitome of Parisian chic Ines de la Fressange has just released her new book to follow up her wildly successful first Parisian Chic, and in it she does the work of the stylist. Parisian Chic Look Book: What Should I Wear Today? does everything for you except the shopping."--TheSimplyLuxuriousLife.com "de la Fressange demonstrates how to achieve her quintessentially Parisian style starting with the wardrobe building blocks--a LBD that can be dressed up or down, classic riding boots you'll wear for a lifetime, or the perfect pair of jeans--which she combines with panache to suit every situation. And then she pinpoints the key accessories--the perfect jeweled flats, the lustrous handbag in an unexpected jewel-tone, the piece of statement jewelry that will become your signature--to ramp up your look from okay to 'oh, wow!'"--Society Chronicles
