Happy-Go-Lucky Book Review. “Paris Street Style. A Guide to an Effortless Chic” by Isabelle Thomas and Frederique Veysset.

by Cashmere Wrap & Macadamia Nuts


This book was among my finds brought home from Paris. During my stay I was fascinated by the parisian street style and this special kind of an effortless elegance that Parisians seem to radiate with. Having said that, it was pretty obvious I had to get the book, if not for an inspiration, than at least for a purpose of my fashion research.

The book is a know how written for all who admire the Paris street style and would like to apply some of french chic into their daily life. It was written by two insiders who know the Paris style inside out and are not afraid to share this secret knowledge with others. The book is full of pictures, illustrations, fashion tips as well as interviews with prominent people related to french fashion. It makes an easy and interesting reading, not to mention how inspirational it may become.

After the lecture of fourteen chapters you will know what are the key pieces no Parisian can survive without, how to mix chic and cheap, how to go vintage, how to upgrade your look to make it more refined and what is to be avoided at all cost. I thought it very applicable and easy to incorporate into my wardrobe policy, so if french chic is your thing, this is the book that is worth the attention.
