I’ve been wanting to wear this French-style look of hi-tops with skinnies since I saw so many girls wearing them like this in Paris last year.
I know I’m a little late on recreating this style(!), but as I’m nearing the end of my La Redoute ambassadorship I thought I should get these fabulous black Nike hi-tops and do my own version before it’s all over.
It may be the end of March but we still need winter coats in the UK (depressingly!), so I paired the black and white of my Nikes with the black and white of my check coat. A little colour in the form of a purple galaxy snood (long since sold out sadly but I do love this ombre one) and this was enough to keep me warm and comfy for a walk at the weekend. As with my other French style outfits, it may not be an outfit that screams “Parisian chic” but it’s the elements of it I like to take away and make my own, and as a long-time fan La Redoute is the perfect brand to be able to do that with.
Are you a fan of French style – and what does Parisian style mean to you? Do you have any French style heroines – modern or classic? Do share, I’d love to know!
