The other day I was flipping through the new February FLARE, only to come across a spread featuring Garance Doré! It's so nice to see an interview with her in one of Canada's favourite fashion magazines. Garance shares all kinds of perfect parisian style tips... which of course, I had to share here!
*Work your assets. In Paris, mother's teach their daughters that you have to show what's good in you, the best part about yourself.
*Details matter. It's not the big things, but the little things that will make you different from everybody.
*Find pieces that have meaning. It's important to buy a few things that have a story and become a part of who you are.
*Make mistakes. Everyone has their off days, but it shows you tried something new.
*Figure out what works for you and stick with it. (Garance says she's drawn to a menswear style. And it suits her!)
*Take notes from the experts (i.e. Paris VOGUE's Carine Roitfeld with her always inspiring style of good and bad taste).
*Find unique jewelry to create a distinct style of your own.
*Invest in top design. Save a little bit to buy that piece you'll really love.
*Look for pieces with versatility. Something that can go from day to night.
And the best advice? "It takes a life to make a style." I think that's pretty true, don't you?
