November 9th, 2015 at 2:00am

Classic black and white stripes always remind me of Paris. Style icons like Audrey Hepburn and Inès de la Fressange have appeared in the timeless, chic look that is Parisian style. Coco Chanel introduced Parisian stripes into fashion, and these stripes will never be outdated. Parisian style involves mastering the art of effortless dressing with sophisticated and classic staple pieces. Fashionistas/os are fascinated by international style and find ideas from places across the globe, with stripes being worn from haute couture to street style.

A black and white striped top is a classic reminder of Parisian fashion. These clean and precise stripes add a certain je ne sais quoi to a look. This Parisian chic Fashionista is showing her Parisian stripes in this stylish and effortless ensemble. The feminine H&M striped top is styled with a flirty black H&M skirt and a pair of classical black Express flats. Of course, a Parisian without her sunglasses would just be très tragique, so this Fashionista is throwing some shade in a pair of flirty and feminine ASOS sunglasses with a cat-eye design. She finished the Parisian-chic look with a statement red lip using a LUSH lipstick.

Incorporating international trends into your wardrobe is always a good idea. So, get after it this fall!

How To: There are several ways to mimic this Parisian chic style while also incorporating your own personal style. Incorporate a striped top into your outfit; the top doesn’t have to be a striped Breton shirt. Find inspiration from Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn and Inès de la Fressange, build upon this inspiration and do not hesitate to make the look your own.
