I must admit: I love Parisian style. As a French girl (a Lyonnaise), I have always been inspired by Paris, its creativity and sophistication.
The Parisian style can be defined as effortless chic, and it is made for women on the go. Having good staples are as important as being able to wear them and mix and match them on numerous occasions. The Parisian woman loves neutral colors and pays attention to details: the cut is fitted or oversized and she will wear nice shoes or accessories. This style is admired worldwide, and the French people are very proud of their iconic looks and luxury labels (like Chanel, Céline, Chloé and Yves Saint Laurent).
If I should drop the name of one Parisian designer I am obsessed with, I will definitely go for Isabel Marant. She knows how to redesign the dressing room of modern women: chic with an edge and always practical.
With Laura from InitialsLA: the stylish Parisian blogger based in Los Angeles, we found the perfect spot in Downtown LA to pay tribute to Paris. Check out two inspired Parisian iconic styles featuring the Leapoard print and the tweed.
Laura: The timeless leapoard coat
I love how Laura styled this leopard coat with this red top and a vintage denim. The look stays sophisticated but effortless chic. Laura is wearing a top from The Reformation, a trendy and sustainable fashion label made in Los Angeles. It really worths to see The Reformation website or store on Melrose Avenue.
Julia: The edgy Tweed
I can not resist to an edgy tweed skirt. When I saw this tweed ruffle hem skirt at Zara, I knew it will be one of my favorite basics! This skirt is really easy to style with a sweater, biker jacket or a simple tee-shirt. This look is really inspired by Chanel, Isabel Marant and Iro. Those Parisian labels know how to upgrade the tweed fabric.
As a Los Angeles resident, I also cannot say no to cut-outs and slits! I love the details of this sweater from Dezzal.
