A Street Style with Elise Chalmin

A basic white shirt (one from your boyfriend is ok) is the most must have piece in your dressing. It can be in linen like this one. A beautiful designer vintage bag (so it is affordable) is also a necessary wardrobe item because it will go with everything, in any circumstance. I would also say an Elise Chalmin teeshirt (haha !), a pair of white Converse, a vintage pair of Levi’s jeans, and a nice pair of slippers.

I think that style is all about the attitude, I am not a fashion victim. And I would say that you don’t need to be overdressed to be stylish. I think the most cool thing is to be natural, and have a great pair of sunglasses and red lipstick, so you can go everywhere.

Paris impacts my style because all my friends are living here, and you don’t always have a set program for your day, it can happen that you have a drink, a party or an event unexpectedly so you need to be dressed for any last minute plan.

I am quite simple in my style, usually wearing jeans with t-shirts. If I am wearing heels, I would be very casual on top. And on the contrary, if I am wearing a very dressed top, I would were sneakers. I am not a very “girly-girl” person and I feel quite easily ill at ease, so I like to be very secure in my clothes.

In the photo above, I am wearing an Elise Chalmin t-shirt, a Thailandese designer striped jacket found in Bangkok, Gucci mules and a vintage Levi’s jeans.
