I tried to do an update on my post about an Essential Parisienne Closet but then I realized that…. that ish is timeless and classic, and that means that each year you don’t really need to update any of it.
Frankly, the whole point of a classic capsule wardrobe is that it stands the test of time, you don’t need to really update or change it, and the most you can do is just buy a different pair of short moto boots rather than the ones you have.
What I did do, was come up with a few more outfits that I have seen floating around as of late, seeing as the weather has been cooler.
I already have a whole bunch of Parisian outfit style updates here, but here’s another set.
THE SWEATER DRESS
This one is classic with a twist!
You have the oh-so-seemingly plain sweater dress that is nothing special (but of course the fabric is luxe and deliciously warm), some black tights, and instead of wearing heels which is what you think this dress is made for, you throw in some tough moto boots.
This works because you have feminine details, paired with classic items, with some menswear inspiration thrown in to make it not quite so girly.
THE HIGH HEELED SHEARLING
Again, masculine meets feminine!
Rugged shearling jackets are still blowing up on style pages when thrown over any outfit.
It keeps you warm, looks oversized and comfortable without being too prim and proper, and you wear a simple little ripped jean ensemble underneath to keep it cool. The interesting asymmetrical hemline of the black turtleneck (it’s all in the super minimal details) keeps it interesting when you have a white tank peeking out.
Now, the clutch has a very SLIGHT colour detail (horrifying I know), with a red racing stripe, and the pumps are epic and sexy to offset the rugged look.
THE DAILY LOOK
This is pretty much what they’d wear every day.
The long-sleeved shirt is both lightweight and sexy enough to be slightly transparent so you can wear a black lace bra or cami underneath, and the black pants have cool moto zippered details that would show through that transparent top.
The scarf is knitted and marled in a grey to kind of bring some “colour” (Parisian style) to the look.
The final touch? A beaten silver cuff.
