The women of Paris have always been recognized as the world leaders of a classic, sophisticated look, that certain je ne sais quoi which has held such mystique for style-conscious women around the world.

Here two native Parisians demonstrate what it takes to achieve the look of la petite parisienne, from building a collection of chic, timeless pieces (what the Parisian woman looks for in color, line, etc.) to choosing accessories, jewelry, perfume, and more. In addition, the book provides complete listings of not-to-be-missed Parisian boutiques, plus an indispensable glossary of French fashion terms. At once a practical style guide and a charming homage to one of the most popular destinations in the world, this colorful volume reveals the elusive secrets of Parisian chic.
