ITSO . . . In the Style of . . . Inès de la Frassange

Having few but good things. Mixing old and new, luxurious and cheap, day and evening. Remembering clothes are there to help you look and feel good, not to show off. We are not hangers.
- Inès de la Frassange in an Elle interview
The NICEST: comfortable casual

Inès de la Frassange is one of the authors of Parisian Chic, a guide to Paris style and she represents that style, that chic-ness. Yes, Inès de la Fressange does it well. Hers is the ultimate in the most elegant "comfortable casual" style.

When you search for photos of de la Fressange online, the majority of images feature her in pants, cropped or full length and a blazer, jacket or cardigan. She has almost a "tomboy" quality when she is wearing a formal gown or even a shirt dress. Her "look", in pants, top and "jacket" is definitely one that appeals to me at this time in my life. Yes, I think she looks even more elegant in this casual style than she does when wearing a dress.

Cropped Pants: Those cropped pants show up on de la Fressange all the time; which simply proves that one can adopt an article of clothing or accessory and make it his or her own. Black, white, beige; she's in them all the time.

Jacket, Blazer or Cardigan: If the pants are cropped or not, she is often in a blazer. She also chooses blazers to wear over a skirt or dress.

Flats: De la Fressange's model height doesn't need enhancement. In fact, there are red carpet photos of her in an evening gown and flats. She does wear heels but on the street, it is more often flats.
