V53: GET THE LOOK – FRENCH CONNECTION

CeciStyle Magazine v53: Get The Look - Add a French vibe to your black-and-white color scheme for a charming effect

  1. FRENCH CHIC
    Go for a French-y mood by adding patterns like toile and stripes, as seen in these invitations I designed for a creative project with event pro Jill La Fleur (click here for starting prices, cecinewyork.com).

  2. FLAT OUT GORGEOUS
    Slip on these delicate flats from Pretty Ballerinas ($198, anthropologie.com) for a look that’s both elegant and playful.

  3. FLORAL RELIEF
    Add a dash of vintage charm with Frolick’s floral cameo ring ($46, shopfrolick.com).

  4. WALK LIKE A LADY
    You’ll ooze Audrey Hepburn-like femininity with Oscar de la Renta’s full-skirted cocktail dress (oscardelarenta.com).

  5. TOP TALENT
    This Pocomo hat from Peter Beaton ($224, peterbeaton.com) has gamine style to spare. Wear it with your favorite striped shirt.

  6. HOLD ON YOU
    You can skip the card when giving this clever decoupaged-glass tray ($78, jaysonhomeandgarden.com) as a gift. The message is there for all to see!

  7. PRETTY SCENT
    What a romantic candle! Lollia’s Wish petite perfumed luminary ($32, lollialife.com) smells of citrus-y Italian bergamot and comes in a darling, French-inspired floral pattern.

  8. CARRY ON
    Pair one of these small bow totes from Peter Beaton ($136, peterbeaton.com) with a shift dress or cropped pants for ladylike polish that’s perfect for summer.

  9. FRIENDLY CHARACTER
    Searching for a sweet hostess gift? Try a set of these French friendship wine glasses, complete with etched description ($18, basicfrenchonline.com).

  10. SYMBOL ART
    For a regal touch, choose these Brian Danielle fleur de lis black diamond earrings ($340, maxandchloe.com).
