Classic Parisian Outfit #1: The Off-Duty Model

All of my Parisian Style & Wardrobe Posts can be found here.

The most classic of all modern French outfits is this one:



I call this outfit the “off-duty model” because it makes me think of how classic it is and how easy it is to do it on a budget!

A simple white tee, under a classic, sharp, well-fitted blazer and some cropped Audrey Hepburn-inspired cigarette pants or jeans.

Add some heels in any style you like (literally ANY STYLE).. or wear it with flats, ballet flats that are rounded, pointy-toed, lace-ups, or even tennis sneakers.

Then you can add jewellery or not.



Can be a solid colour like a classic white, black or navy, or a graphic print.


A thinner lapel with one, two or three buttons, the sky’s the limit!

I like a neutral blazer to start (black, navy, ivory, camel..), but you can add a pop of colour with a bright pink blazer over a more neutral outfit.


Cigarette-style pants, white, or dark rinse jeans. That’s pretty much it.

You can go for a bright red pant if you want instead, but the rest of the outfit has to be neutral.

Only ONE colour pop allowed.



Short ankle boots, wrapped boots, higher heels, stilettos…


Classic ballerina flats or a pointy-toed, or lace-up version is pretty.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.
