Really, who better to compile a style guide on the elements of “Parisian chic” than Inès de la Fressange, the French model who is perhaps best known for being Karl Lagerfeld’s muse and, in turn, becoming the first model to sign an exclusive modeling contract with Chanel? The book discusses everything you need to know about how Parisian women maintain their effortless sense of style – including how to mix affordable basics with high-end touches, how to accessorize, the seven essential items you should have in your wardrobe, and more. There is also a section on how to give your home a Parisian chic twist. To complete the guide, de la Fressange has shared her favorite shopping haunts and destinations. Parisian Chic: A Style Guide ($16.10) is due in stores on April 5, but you can pre-order it now at Amazon.com. In the meantime, check out some excerpts inside from the French edition.
