Happy Tuesday and welcome back to my blog! Today I wanted to show a little appreciation for everyone’s favourite modern Parisian style muse, Jeanne Damas.
As soon as I stumbled across Jeanne, I fell in love with her classy, effortless style. Whenever I find a new fashion inspiration, I try to break down her look into common pieces that are easy to replicate. Lucky for us all, Jeanne, tends to mention in interviews how simple her style really is. In her words, she knows what works for her and she sticks with it.
Jeanne’s, style staples include: high-rise vintage style straight leg jeans, high-rise straight leg trousers, low-cut patterned blouses, silk button-downs, t-shirts, blazers, heeled booties, patterned summer dresses with sandals or espadrilles and of course, her signature red lip.
Luckily for all of us, Jeanne relies heavily on her well-chosen basics. These become the staple of her wardrobe and allow her to mix and match, knowing that every piece she owns is not only flattering on her, but also completely cohesive with her coveted signature look.
Jeanne is all about balance. She mixes masculine and feminine. She wears a bold red lip with no other makeup. She wears an amazing evening dress with a loose messy bun. The undone nature of her look keeps her looking unbelievably stylish while also remaining completely effortless.
Though she’s widely regarded as a total muse and inspiration to women all over the world, Jeanne says that her style is largely not about clothing, but about confidence. She’s not after the perfect outfit, she’s much more concerned about feeling confident in herself, no matter what she wears.
