Style School: Parisian


    Happy weekend, all! I'm back with another Style School post. This next fashion is something that I really enjoy pulling off now and again. It is none another than...

Parisian

   A Parisian look is characterized by simple, and “effortless” styling. Basic pieces, neutral colors, and horizontal stripes, are wardrobe staples for a lady wanting to emulate this style. The wearer might put together an outfit that could easily fit into the “Classic” category, then top it off with a colorful beret. Parisian style is an excellent choice for the girl who wants to keep styling simple but chic.

Examples of Parisian Pieces: Sailor top; Tailored trousers; Full midi skirt; Ballet Flats; Leather Jacket; Trench Coat; Beret; Small Scarf




   My own Parisian outfit was a breeze to put together, as I already had the right pieces. My blue and white sailor top was a no-brainer. I decided to pair it with a navy skirt, and also layered on black tights for warmth. As with last week, black flats were my shoe of choice. A crocheted beret topped off the outfit, and was that final detail that made the look.

Outfit Details: Top ~ Target; Skirt ~ Hand-me-down; Tights ~ ?; Shoes ~ Kohl's; Beret ~ Made by me 


    I hope that these Style School posts have been helpful so far in clearing up the mystery of all the phrases thrown around in the fashion world. It's fun for me to research different styles and find ways to define them! Stay tuned for next week, when I plan to take on "Boho!" :)

    2. Oh all sorts of things! Right now I'm making lip balm holders for a Easter craft fair we are going to be attending in March. :)

      I like making hats as well ... I have a whole bag of them. :)

      In the past I've made coasters, necklaces, bracelets, bookmarks, animals (owls are my favourite to make!), a couple baskets with t-shirt yarn, and some doilies/mats. :) I'm probably forgetting some things, but oh well!

      So yes you can tell I like crocheting! :p
