I'd Wear That

Caroline de Maigret Style,

Surprisingly I haven't featured Caroline de Maigret here before because as a self avowed tomboy, I've long been a fan of her personal style. This outfit that she wears here that consists of a blazer styled with straight leg jeans and a pair of Adidas Stan Smith sneakers could be one of my Spring uniforms. Despite a sense of casualness, this look is effortlessly chic and put together. One of my favorite ways to elevate any outfit is to top it with a tailored blazer for some polish. And this outfit has some styling possibilities that can notch up the versatility. It can take on a more professional look with a crisp button down shirt or a feminine blouse or it can take on an edgy cool vibe with a graphic tee. And the choice of footwear can transform it as well. Would you wear this? How would you style it? 

Incidentally, Caroline de Maigret is one of the co-authors of How to be Parisian Wherever You Are, a fresh and fun read where four Parisian women offer their original views on style, beauty, culture, attitude and relationships among other topics.

She looks so awesome, chingu! I really need those Adidas sneakers...like, yesterday:D And thanks for the heads up on that book. Will add it to my TBR. I have Ines de le Fressange's Parisian Chic book and love it, so this book is right up my alley:)
Have a great day!

Hola Rowena,

Thank you so much for your beautiful comments. As usual I find a lot of inspiration and energy to keep creating in your feedback! I really appreciate that you always take the time to share your vision with me :)

As usual I love the style icons you share over here! I think Caroline De Maigret is crucial when you try to understand fashion in our current era... She started as an icon many years ago but probably the explosion came out with her book like 10 years ago or so but it is crazy to see how many of her "features" still appearing in contemporary fashion (streets, blogs, Instagram, magazines, etc.) I feel that it has to do with something that feels timeless but also propositive :)

If you ask me I'd definitely wear this same look, from head to toe, probably adding a bit more of color but exactly the same!

Checking out all the other content you shared lately!

Take care :)!

I like your ideas for styling varying looks featuring the straight legged blue denim jeans and white Adidas Stan Smith Sneakers. I especially like the idea of styling it with a feminine blouse and tailored blazer.
