Outfit of the week

 As Jennifer is off to Paris very soon for a long weekend, she has decided to update her wardrobe for the occasion. Where better to look effortlessly chic and sophisticated while sipping a caffe latte! Of course you've got to look fabulous in the fashion capital of Europe, so how exactly do you blend in with the Parisian's?

Firstly, always think that when you are dressing in the morning that today you will meet your true love! With this in mind, Jennifer has chosen to wear the porcelain sheen tunic dress a beautiful refreshing floral printed dress that says chic and sweet. To compliment this and of course keep warm when out in the city, she has chosen the Imperial wool classic coat for that bold pop of colour. A gorgeous supersoft and lightweight coat that looks great with boots or comfy with trainers and jeans. A very stylish Parisian outfit that has been approved by the Inis team.

Secondly, invest in clothes that you will wear and be able to mix and match. We recommend the Polly plains tops which come in a variety of bold colours and are easy to dress up or down. A fantastic investment is the ever stylish tally trilby hat which you know is a classic and never goes out of fashion. This year it has a thick contrasting black band for a more modern take. If you are need of ideas, it goes beautifully with the knit day dress both items Jennifer has already packed into her suitcase.

Lastly, style must look effortless so think simple unfussy hairstyles like a quick side plait and then left loose or even tie into a simple chignon to complement any outfit. Our final bit of advice would be to go all out when it comes to bags as it is one item in your wardrobe that must look designer in the fashion capital. I would recommend the Evie leather tote a boxy 100% leather tote bag that has a removable and adjustable shoulder strap and is sure to get you noticed.

With a few of these items packed and a huge smile, Jennifer will look effortlessly stylish, natural and ready for Paris. All above items featured are on our website under french connection and at an amazing SALE price. So if you have booked a city weekend break away and don't know what to wear, follow our top tips on how to look stylish and enjoy!

Love from all at Inis xx
