When it comes to dressing a la Parisienne, the attitude matters just as much as the outfit.  Approach your look with unapologetic confidence and you’ll capture that je ne sais quoi in seconds. After all, renting = no risk, so why not go for it? Below, a few style tips to get you started.

Tip 1: Liven Up All Black

Refresh this monochromatic fallback with quirky details like statement sleeves,
cutouts and graphic shapes. Voilà: classic to cool in seconds.

Tip 2: Experiment with Patterns

Florals, checks, stripes – try them all! Don’t be afraid to swap your neutrals for a little  offbeat flare. Style with slides for a modern twist.

Tip 3: Seek Romance

Paris isn’t called the City of Love for nothing. Channel your inner romantic in a ruffled statement top. Throw your hair in a messy bun and head to dinner looking fashionably effortless.

Tip 4: Spin the Standards
