The Parisienne Basic

By  |  Comments

There are a few items in my closet that I consider to be essentials. Being from France, a marinière is one of them! These stripped shirts are a must-have basic in the Parisienne closet and you don’t have to be French to recognize that they’re a timeless classic. Style icons including Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, and Brigitte Bardot are just a few of the lovely ladies who have been spotted wearing them.

A marinière is a great basic to dress up or down. During the day, I like to wear mine with jeans. For the evening, it’s great tucked in to a sparkly skirt or a black fitted suit. I also have a marinière dress which works with sandals in the summer and boots in the fall or winter.

What’s your go-to basic in your closet?
