How to Look French-Chic

French women are known for their effortless and sophisticated style, even if the outfit is just made up of white t-shirt and jeans. How do they do it? After studying look after look, one key element is their prowess in making their outfit look simple, yet elegant. Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, Christian Louboutin, are all French designers that exude the simple and sophisticated style in their pieces. This minimalist look is followed by a few sparkling jewels here and there, and voila, there you have it.

Personal Style: Work Your Way Up

One of the best pieces of career advice is to “dress the part” or dress like you belong there since how you look shapes the way you’re perceived. If you work at a law office, you want to give off an air of professionalism with the blouses, button-ups and blazers. And if you’re working at a less-stiff work environment, you have a little more wiggle room. But in either case, accessories and jewelry can be used to your advantage in building your personal style and adding an understated element of “fun” to your look.

Check out 1928′s collection of badge holder necklaces like the adorable butterfly below and our Downton Abbey hair pin sets to help you dress the part in style!
