Paris Street Style by Isabelle Thomas

Into the Wild

Paris Street Style Read Online Free - 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.

Praise for Paris Street Style:

“In this fun new book, a pair of fashion bloggers promise to reveal the secrets of their compatriots’ mysterious and seemingly innate ability to look sophisticated under any circumstances. With the help of hand-drawn illustrations and photos of models, fashionistas and anonymous women met in the street, they dissect the essential elements of les Parisiennes’ deceptively casual, highly individualistic brand of urban chic and offer readers tips galore on creating their own personal style.” —France Magazine

2.5 Stars I love a good fashion book but I was a little disappointed with this one. It seemed to contradict itself by saying that fashion is all about individuality, finding your own style and being fearless, but then would list do’s and don’ts on the very next page. How are we expected to be fear...

How to rate a book like this? On the quality of the writing? The originality of the fashion advice? The photographs and art? The writing was easy and accessible for all audiences. The fashion advice was hardly original but a good reinforcement of what is already dogma, and the photographs were no...

I love fashion and all things French, so you'd think I'd love this book. But I think that fashion should be a source of joy and pleasure, whereas the authors of this book seem to think that fashion is a cruel and dictatorial world, where the better-dressed pass judgement upon those who try too ha...

My daughter picked this up for me at the library, because she knows I have been exploring French fashion lately. This book has lovely photographs on heavy paper and there are some good tips in here. But it's also contradictory, laced with interviews with designers, shop owners, "fashion icons," t...

It’s fun to read thou. Sách đẹp, bìa đẹp, giấy dày chất lượng khỏi chê. Hình ảnh in đẹp, thiết kế dàn trang cũng tinh tế. Nội dung thì không quá đặc sắc, đúng hơn là đơn giản như tổng hợp các bài trên tạp chí làm thành một tập san. Quyển này tập trung về áo quần phụ kiện (trang phục) hơn là phong...

I had high hopes for this book, as it is a "French chic" book written for women -- by French authors. Before I get to content, I have to address the poor proofreading and editing peppered throughout the book. With regard to content, there are several contradictions throughout, and that drove me ba...

Aaaaahhhhh, to be in my twenties again - or even my thirties. This is a quick, fun read for every woman interested in dressing well.

Paris Street Style - a guide to effortless chic. This book was more like a self indulgent magazine and not so much of a book. Most of the so called styles are very editorial. I've never seen real Parisians walk around looking like this. You can skip this book.

A little bit negative, arbitrary and racist. However, some tips are really helpful, in their own ways.

[ This post was originally uploaded to http://www.theageofintimacy.com/isabe... as part of a blogging/social media internship. ] 'Personal style' books fascinate me. I'm not exactly sure why. I think it might be because I fall back on the default jeans-top-flats combination – the natural instinct...
