The art of being chic

What better way to define chic than featuring Carine Roitfeld? “With French women you first see the woman and then you see the clothes.” How often haven’t I wondered what is the secret of the mastered to perfection style of the French women? Being chic is about that flair of throwing things together in a seemingly effortless way and always looking stylish, it’s about the ability of wearing ripped jeans with pearls, basic items with haute-couture pieces, bold accessories with a classic tailleur.  It’s like saying meet me halfway between elegant and unexpected. I wish you a wonderful week!

Stilul lui Carine Roitfeld defineste cel mai bine termenul chic. Nu v-ati intrebat niciodata care este secretul stilului desavarsit al frantuzoaicelor? Chic este undeva intre elegant si cool, intre clasic si neprevazut. Este acea abilitate de a purta perle cu jeans rupti, piese haute-couture cu unele elementare, accesorii indraznete cu un taior clasic. A fi chic nu tine de cat de multi bani ai sau de cat de multe haine ai, ci de a detine cunostintele necesare pentru a putea achizitiona cu cap cateva piese de rezistenta, cat si de un simt ingenios de a le combina intre ele fara prea mare efort, insa cu destul fler, creind astfel iluzia ca ai o suta de tinute diferite. O saptamana minunata!
