How to be Parisian

Some tips from the book:
  • You don’t have to spend a decade’s worth of salary on your wardrobe, or flaunt designer brands the whole time. All you need is one signature item: the one you wear when you need to feel strong.
  • Always look as if you are gazing at the sunset. Even during rush hour in the Metro. Even when picking up frozen pizza from the supermarket.
  • Wear navy blue with black. (And red with pink, a la Yves Saint Laurent.)
  • The Parisienne wears very little jewellery.
  • Talk to everyone in the same tone of voice, whether it’s your parents, the taxi driver, your boss,, a celebrity you met at a bar or the newspaper vendor on the corner.
  • Wake up on Saturday morning in your building, looking out at the same view as from your apartment, but at a slightly lower angle. Realise you’re in your downstairs neighbour’s bed.
