I so enjoyed pulling together this second instalment of my Style Profile series, where I analyse the sartorial choices of my favourite style icons. Ines de la Fressange has long been a fashion idol of mine (and the rest of the world, it seems!). The former Chanel model is truly the epitome of Parisian chic, and is a brilliant example of uniform dressing.
*Who: Ines de la Fressange.
*What: French model and fashion designer.
*Fashion Style: Ines’ signature look includes tailored blazers, skinny jeans, v-neck jumpers, stylish shirts and brightly coloured flats. She provides brilliant inspiration for uniform dressing: utilising only a few keys looks and pieces that form her signature style.
*The Style Factor: It would be hard to be cooler than Ines de la Fressange. Her style icon status comes not only from her amazing wardrobe, but from her lovely personality that radiates through her beautiful smile.
*Shop: Aside from perusing Ines’ own shop, you can incorporate some of her look into your own style by picking up skinny jeans from ACNE, basic tees and tanks from Le Petit Bateau, classic flats from Roger Vivier and fitted, cashmere sweaters from Eric Bompard.
*Eat: Channel your inner French woman and pick up a flaky croissant and strong coffee from your favourite cafe.
*Do: Ines’ style is always comfortable, as well as stylish: perfect for strolling around art galleries, hunting down London’s best independent shops or meeting friends for dinner.
