Summary "One city always seems to win the award for most-wanted style--Paris, where people walking down the avenues mix timeless and trendy pieces in a way that appears effortless. French fashion writers Isabelle Thomas and Frédérique Veysset break down the "je ne sais quoi" of Paris street style, describing the essential elements that should be in everyone's wardrobe. Renowned experts on French style--designers, stylists, editors, and celebrities--also chime in to reveal their favorite accessories and how to create multidimensional looks and make affordable clothing appear luxurious. Starring both fashion icons and anonymous women met on the streets of Paris and richly illustrated with hand-drawn sketches and Veysset's striking photographs, Paris Street Style is an inspirational fashion guide that will allow you, no matter where you are from, to cultivate an everyday style of timeless glamour, careless, easy chic--votre style français."
