Parisian chic: it is one of the most desired, but elusive trends in fashion. There is just something nonchalantly beautiful about how the French girls do it. And their wedding style is just the same. Lauren Crispin knows this better than most. After spending years living and working in France, she is now the co-owner of The Mews New York, a new boutique specialising in French bridal couture. Here are her tips on how a bride can achieve chic, Parisian wedding style.
Less is More
Keep accessories to a minimum and don't overload your ensemble with too many pieces. The simpler, the better.
Minimize the Make-Up
Again, keep it simple, let your natural beauty come through instead of going over the top.
Don't Be Afraid to Be Different
French girls care very little about what others think of their style. Think about a bridal jumpsuit or layer a cool jacket over the top of a dress.
Ditch the Diamantés
A French girl would never be seen dead wearing a bejewelled dress. Keep the materials uncomplicated – silk and lace are a French bride's best friend.
Comfort is Key When it Comes to Footwear
Rarely will you catch a Parisian woman strutting around in six-inch heels. The French designer Sezane is a Mews fave. Chic, yet comfortable, we’ll have a pair in every color!
Now that you know how to perfect the ultimate French ensemble, you must top it off with the ultimate Parisian hairstyle. Look chic yet nonchalant with the perfect, “I woke up like this” flair.
So, bring a bit of relaxed and effortless simplicity to your bridal style for a Parisian chic style and a sprinkling of je ne sais quoi. The Mews Bridal New York is the exclusive East Coast stockist of four Parisian bridal designers: Rime Arodaky, Delphine Manivet, Donatelle Godart and Margaux Tardits. The Mews Bridal also has two locations in the U.K. – Notting Hill and Clifton.
