Brought to you by Opera Lane.
Summer’s not quite finished yet.
But with the heatwave behind us, the warm, dull weather is making it tricky to pull a look together.
If you’re feeling in-between styling influences (summer maxi dress or tailored shorts?!) or not feeling the latest trends at all, you can always rely on a little classic French fashion moment to see you through until autumn.
Parisian style is all about paring back your look to a few good quality, well-fitting basics for a laid-back yet très chic effect that will take you from the office to the wine bar.
The trick here is to reach for loose, masculine shapes and simple accessories that are made to last. All you need is a slick of bright red lipstick and you’re out the door.
