Black Is The New Black

Nothing is ever the new black. Black is always the best color choice for clothing (if styled correctly)  in any season. I have recently began to adore the French/Parisian style because of its simple, seemingly effortless and extremely chic and modest appearance {never show too much skin}. Not to mention black is essential to this look. 

In order to perfectly capture the essence of Parisian style, there are a few articles of clothing and accessories that are necessary. "Less is more" as they say, so the less patterns and hold colours, the better. Pairing black bottoms, whether it be black denim, a skirt, or leather shorts, with a black top of some sort is always a yes. This, however, is not to say there is no other option. The French love pairing white and grey with black as well. All of these colours together instantly create an effortlessly chic appearance {which I currently  adore }. The French girls are also queens of the boyfriend jeans, so these are crucial as well. Also, don't forget to leave a little bit undone. What? Yes! Leave your appearance a little undone. Only tuck in the front of your shirt and leave it out in the back. Don't button all your buttons. This adds to the naturally "effortless" look leaving people wondering how you're so flawless without trying. Now for the outerwear; the French always rock the leather moto jacket. It's edgy nature adds another layer to the chic street style that makes it look even better. 

Accessories and Shoes: Leave the accessories to a minimum. A few pieces of dainty jewellery at most. Hats are a must {medium brim preferably} and if it's black, it goes with everything! The classic Parisian shoe is a flat. From loafers to booties, they're all flat {probably due to all the walking on cobblestone!} and its just another effortless layer to the look. 

Where do you find everything you need for this adorable French style? H&M will get you nearly everything at a beautiful price. By purchasing various black, white and grey tops with a variety of black bottoms, you'll walk out not having spent a fortune with countless numbers of outfits because of how well it all goes together. Their boots and flats are flawless, but you'll probably have to order them online {they arrive quickly don't worry}. Below I displayed some products currently on H&M's website that follow the description I've talked about in this article! Aside from H&M, I had lots of luck in the TOPSHOP section of Nordstrom. I hope you've enjoyed this weeks What I Love Wednesday ❤️
