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.
FROM MY INSTAGRAM @SAVERSPENDER:
COMPONENT #1: TEES
Can be a solid colour like a classic white, black or navy, or a graphic print.
COMPONENT #2: STRUCTURED BLAZER
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.
COMPONENT #3: CLASSIC CROPPED PANTS OR JEANS
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.
COMPONENT #4: NOW FOR THE SHOES
Short ankle boots, wrapped boots, higher heels, stilettos…
Classic ballerina flats or a pointy-toed, or lace-up version is pretty.
