In this sequel to her New York Times best seller Parisian Chic, Ines de la Fressange offers a complete guide to mastering the secrets of Parisian style. Ines de la Fressange's personal style is chic yet relaxed in every situation. While a navy-and-white striped nautical top with slim, cropped jeans and flats is a classic French look, it's harder to pinpoint how Parisians unfailingly blend elegance and allure with such ease. In this sequel to her best sellerParisian Chic, the world's favorite style icon demonstrates how to achieve her quintessentially Parisian look throughout the year. Her style secrets start with the building blocks of wardrobe staples—an LBD that can be dressed up or down, timeless riding boots you'll wear for a lifetime, or the perfect pair of jeans—and combine with seasonal items like costume bangles, a top in this season's on-trend color, or the right shade of lip color. In this new volume, Ines expands on what you need for every season and how—by incorporating a multitude of unforgettable French style details—you can transform yourself into a true Parisienne.

How To Be Parisian brilliantly deconstructs the French woman's views on culture, fashion and attitude. Bohemian free-thinkers and iconoclasts, Anne Berest, Caroline De Maigret, Audrey Diwan and Sophie Mas cut through the myths in this gorgeous, witty guide to Parisienne savoir faire. These modern Parisiennes say what you don't expect to hear, just the way you want to hear it. They are not against smoking in bed, and all for art, politics and culture, making everything look easy, and going against the grain. They will take you on a first date, to a party and through a hangover. They will tell you how to be mysterious and sensual, make your boyfriend jealous, the right way to approach weddings and the gym, and they will share their address book in Paris for where to go at the end of the night, for a birthday, for a smart date, for vintage finds and much more. Full of wit and self-deprecating humour, How To Be Parisian explains those confusing subjects of clothes, makeup, men, culture and lifestyle as only a true Parisienne can.
