They save the best for last and Paris is certainly no exception.

And regardless of the rainbow spectrum of brights and comical prints, the minimalism of the fair Parisienne dame still stands supreme in my eyes. The French do style best, always have and always will. And why is this so? Perhaps it's because it is the birthplace of Haute Couture? Or maybe they're just born with sartorial grace, effortlessly pairing back pieces and hues like an art form. Actually an article I read (somewhere on the Internets, possibly Vogue Australia) hypothesised on the subject a few weeks ago, pondering the million dollar question, "why are the French so enviably chic?" The conclusion was that they do not follow trends. Simple enough and makes a world of sense when you think about it. They wear what they like and do so with incorruptible confidence. Which is what style should be all about. No over-thinking, not that you're carrying that "it" mini handbag nor that your coat costs more than what most people make in monthly wages. Style is an uncomplicated expression of oneself and should always remain that way; in my humble opinion anyway.

Who here agrees with me on this? How do you actually see and define style yourselves? Is it through labels and flashy things or more to do with the physical person who carries pieces and how they've defined themselves within them? I'd love to hear your thoughts on the topic lovers. Don't be shy, drop me a line below in the comments.

  2. Sonia, I hear you! Totally agree in each words you said, for me that is really what style should be. I've also read an article about parisian chic style and I agree on the fact the got confidence putting on whatever they love, in or out. And I think their simple style is always the best choice. Amazing street style round up, Sasha Luss is my fav! Hugs! xo (ps thanks a bunch, I so appreciated you noticed the new look <3)

  3. Some great street style pics! I love the hat in the third one - is it Anna Dello Russo under there? That's my guess anyway haha!

    I think you're right - style is wearing what makes you happy and being true to yourself - and wearing the trends that suit you and passing by those that don't. IMHO anyway! :)

  9. I agree with your theory. Personally I don't follow trends either because it's too tiring to have to keep up with it. And I don't find it particularly inspiring and it's as if you couldn't (think) dress for yourself.

  11. Oh gosh, this post. THIS POST! There's so much to admire and mention! The fur shawl is a definite winter inspiration and something we could all emulate and take from this selection of street style. I'm also a huge fan of the peek-a-boo underwear style as seen in the second photo within this post - it's so daring and courageous, I'm not quite there yet, but that won't stop me from admiring it! :) I hope you're having a wonderful week so far, Sonia! :)

  12. Definitely agree with you; fashion is about how you define your style and how you carry yourself! A lot of people love the flashy brand names but I love clothes that are more affordable yet still chic! Thanks for sharing these style inspirations! By the way, I'm in love with that plaid handbag!!!

    1. Agreed. What is the point in wearing something "trendy" if you're not feeling confident in it. Nothing worse than when an outfit is wearing you when you should be wearing it. xx

  27. I totally agree with you, dear, I don't follow trends, because I think that style is something more than trends and wearing clothes, which are IT in every season. Moreover, I love these inspirations, the last one skirt (dress?) is stunning <3

  33. Beautiful street style inspirations Sonia! I love the French style. They always look effortlessly chic (and beautiful). I don't follow trends too. I think they are made for people who don't have a style and too much many on their hands haha. What I wear depends on my mood. I prefer to keep it simple and casual. Happy Friday!!

  41. Wow Sonia. I wish we could go to Paris fashion week together and experience the street style in all its glory. I think you hit the nail on the head....they don't follow trends...they don't spend weeks planning an outfit....and most importantly their confidence is killer. I wish some of this parisian chicness would rub off on me :).
