If you finished binge-watching Emily In Paris and now want to just pack your bags and move to the ‘City of Love’, congratulations, you’re just like all of us. Emily In Paris is the latest Netflix show that’s got all the girls… and guys wishing they could go gallivanting in the quaint little streets of Paris and not be afraid to leave behind a trail of hot French romances with that je ne sais quoi French attitude. *such fun*
The show follows an American social media marketing manager, Emily Cooper, who moves to Paris for a year, to bring an "American perspective" to a newly acquired advertising team. Aside from giving us a view of the picturesque city, we also got a look at the typical French girl style, which FYI has become our new obsession. From showing us the perfect solution for those dreaded bad hair days to teaching us how a simple hair accessory can change your entire look to also giving us fashionable yet comfy office wear attire options, we’ve listed down the best fashion and beauty tips to follow if you want to add a bit of Parisian vibe to your style, regardless of where you live.
P.S. These tips will make you feel anything but ringarde!
These beauty and fashion tips are oh-so-easy to recreate and there’s also room to add your own personal touch to it. As the French say, "C’est simple comme bonjour"!
Bad hair days are annoying. It can leave you feeling like merde, even if your outfit and makeup are on point and getting the perfect selfies are almost impossible in such situations. Well, if there’s anything we learned from Emily Cooper, is that un chapeau makes everything better. And the options are endless as well. You can hide your bed head for your morning brunch with a stylish beret, or use a sun hat while vacationing at the beach or even ditch the baseball hat for a fedora to protect your head from the heat while grocery shopping.
The makeup artist who created Emily Cooper's perfume launch event makeup look revealed that in order to achieve the perfect day and night French-girl makeup, you need to keep it très simple in the morning and later highlight your eyes and lips. For the day, a light base along with highlighter, mascara and blush starting from the apples of the cheek going all the way up to the temples is good enough. For the night, all you need to do is apply a bold red lippy and a hint of eyeliner on your upper lash line, et, voila!
We first saw Audrey Hepburn rock those bold brows in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ and now we see Emily doing the same in Emily In Paris. Granted, actress Lily Collins does have naturally thick brows, but that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve it as well! All you need is your trusty brow powder and spoolie to rock those box brows, all day.
Not everyone is brave enough to pull off all of Emily’s office wear looks but there’s one that’s simple, stylish and will make you look like a total #bossbabe. A long flowy summery dress paired with a belt and strappy stilettos is something everyone can pull off.
After seeing Emily Cooper's ballet outfit which consisted of an off-shoulder dress and a sleek updo paired with a subtle tiara-like accessory placed around her head, we’re now left wondering why hasn’t hair jewellery blown up on the trend chart yet? It clearly screams la haute couture. If you want to embrace this look, you don’t need to go scrambling through the internet to find a chic piece of hair jewellery, you just need to dig into your jewellery box. The show’s stylist revealed that she used a necklace and place it around the crown of the head to upgrade the updo.
Along with these tips from Emily In Paris, remember, confidence is the cherry on top to help you fully embrace that French girl style.
