Blair Trends- Parisienne Chic

16 May

As we’ve already established, Blair is a fan of the French girl look, although, being Blair, she adds her own twist in the form of colour popping extras and enough attitude to star in a sitcom.

And there’s no wonder Blair loves the French look: it’s classy, romantic, elegant…pretty much everything Blair stands for. For example, take a look at the ultimate French fashionista, Coco Chanel:

She exudes poise and elegance in this picture, and that is precisely what we are going for.

So, without further ado, here is how to achieve the Blair Waldorf French girl trend:

This look is inspired by Miss Waldorf but, as you can see, I’ve taken some liberties. This is about making French chic easy-to-wear and, as much as I love Blair’s wardrobe, it is anything but easy to wear.

We begin with a classy black dress with some lace for good measure. This gives us an understated foundation to the look, so we can have fun with the accessories. It’s knee-length too, so our poised mistress needn’t worry about exposing too much.

A cute cropped cardigan livens the outfit up with its whimsical polka dot print.

Fishnet tights stop the look from being too “nun out to Paris for the day” and give this outfit a much needed injection of allure.

The look can be paired with a cute pair of black pumps (so you’ll have no trouble walking the cobbled streets of Paris) or with a decadent pair of black lace heels.

A pinch of girliness is thrown into the mix with a giant pink flower corsage and a beautiful floral necklace. A beautiful quilted heart-shaped bag just adds to the overall femininity of the look.

Luckily, the look is rescued from the “too girly” zone by a pair of black leather gloves…finishing off the outfit with a flourish.
