The Republique/Oberkampf area of Paris is often compared to New York City’s Brooklyn for its abundance of galleries, thrift stores and bobos (French hipsters). Thus, I was surprised when I spotted this Fashionista wearing her flouncy skirt and Van Cleef-like necklace in a sea of grungy teens in denim cut-offs. Her neutral palette and delicate jewelry exudes elegance while her printed skirt adds a hint of playfulness. This outfit also succeeds in showing skin while staying classy, which can be a difficult feat to accomplish on a hot summer’s day. Channeling a polished vibe like that of Chiara Ferragni, this Fashionista shows us how to stay cool yet elegant when the temperature soars.

How To: To recreate this Fashionista’s outfit, start off with an airy printed skirt and pair it with a simple top in solid colors. Alternatively, you could opt for a cropped tank top and a printed dress for an edgier take on her look. For accessories, layer a couple of long necklaces and sling a dark leather bag over your shoulders. Finally, put on some sandals and voilà, you have a cool and elegant look for the summer.
