As you may or may not have heard, I am constantly trying to be a french girl. You know, svelte no matter how many croissants I eat, generally unbothered and adorable, with effortless style. But sadly, I have to limit my pastries, no one has ever called me adorable, and it’s too cold right now for the striped tee, silk trousers, and beret I’m envisioning (you see it too, don’t you?). In the interim, I’m reading up on looks from fashion week and channeling une femme winter – and for me, nothing says effortlessly chic like all black. The ripped jeans keep it from looking too severe and give this outfit a little texture. I also LOVE this dusty rose COS coat for spring, but I think using it as a transition piece with black is totally working. Come back for the spring-styling in a few weeks. p.s. If you’ve never tried an Everlane cashmere sweater, let me tell you, they are a dream for a fraction of the price.
