How to Dress like a Parisian | According to The Haute Lifestyle

Monday, August 20, 2018

"Fashion Week Season" is in the air and most of what we've been seeing thus far is inspired by Euro Fashion more specifically Paris. The Fashion capital of the world is always ahead of the trends and has a certain sophistication and effortless chic that the rest of the world try to emulate. 

We here at The Haute Lifestyle have been doing our best to keep up with "French Fashion" and found tips and trick on how you can dress like a Parisian by adding your own personality and of course for a lot less.


Skip the Beret



Sure, there is the cliche' association with a Beret and French culture which dates back to centuries ago but this is actually the farthest thing away from dressing like a Parisian. Unless you are a mime, the Beret is definitely not a necessity.


Easy Does it


Contrary to popular believe where it is often perceived that Parisians go overboard when it comes to Fashion--take it from us when we say "less is more". Most Parisians will opt to keep it simple and go for cool and modern. What's cool and modern? Think of a comfy pair of jeans with an edgy pair of ankle boots and a statement item like a handbag or coat/jacket.


Cashmere Sweater, Great Jacket or a Good Blouse

In today's Fashionova and Pretty Little Thing world, items like the ones named above are something of a distant memory. When was the last time you heard anyone say "Oh, I need a cashmere sweater or a good blouse in my wardrobe? We'll wait - A great cashmere sweater can make an everyday outfit look chic and more expensive than it is. We've also found that Parisians love a well-constructed leather Jacket and will wear it over a dress to create that ultra cool look.


Swap out your Black Dress

Parisian Fashion is all about embracing the delicate features of a woman which is often expressed through fabric choices like lace! In this case, you are swapping out your mundane Black Dress for a chic little lace dress. Lace is very important right now because you can dress it up with a nice pair of heels or dress it down with flats or sneakers.


Minimal Make-up


One of the top things we noticed about Parisians is how little makeup they wear! The face has a more natural look, eyebrows are either thinly shaped or slightly bushy and they finish that off with a red lip. This look fits into the "no-make-up make-up look" that became popular 2 years ago in the mainstream beauty industry. Instead of the "beat face," we are used to, opt for a fresh natural look.

Part proceeds of the concert will go towards a scholarship for a young woman in nursing school as well as contributing to the Gregory Isaacs Foundation. 

This will be an exciting concert as Sister Nancy is known for her strong performances that artfully brings the powerful lyrics of her song to life. She is also dubbed as Jamaica's first original female Dj and so patrons can expect an unforgettable experience with a real feel good time which will resonate well especially with her original fans. According to Laurell Nurse, one of the chief organizers of the event ..

"Over the years' she has also managed to keep herself modern and people who are not from that era when she was in her prime, will appreciate her sound and her music. I'm sure everyone who comes out will at least know 'Bam Bam', one of her biggest songs so they can sing along and have a great time."

The "Bam Bam" singer will also see performances by artiste on the rise Kim Nain and other up and coming artists. 


Tickets for the event are available for purchase at the venue and the Pulse Headquarters at 38 Trafalgar Road for $JMD1,000 |USD$10

Why we might delete our Instagram Account

Friday, August 17, 2018


Instagram is a haven where superficiality lives 

It hit me like a ton of bricks last night -- "I need to delete my Instagram account for the Blog and obviously my personal account". I remember watching an episode of "Black Mirror" in a world where people were ranked by how many followers they had and only got certain things based on that like where they get to live, work and even marry. The main character got crazy (literally) documenting evey aspect of her life and trying to fit in. I then realized this must have been an exaggerated version of what Instagram is today. 

Black Mirror - Season 3

Yup, I a millennial is seriously contemplating deleting my Instagram account simply because it adds no value to my life. We (me) have not posted in over a month and it literally has not been on the top of my mind. Thing is, I have a job and a life + a blog and many other things I'm trying to really get up and running and constantly posting pictures and quotes are quite daunting and definitely not on the top of my list. There are certain norms and social constructs portrayed by Instagram that gives us an idea of perfection that often not only heightens our insecurities but slowly leads us into depression. Isn't it weird how many people got lip injections because Kylie Jenner decides it cool? Isn't it weird how all females look alike? Same hair, make-up clothing, and lifestyle-- so much so that if a person is missing it's hard to pick her out of a crowd as they all look like manufactured robots -- sighs. It's all too much! 

Instagram is one of my stressors, I find my self constantly scrolling through photos of people (for no reason) who are only showing the good side of things professing to be living their best lives -- I know some of these people and they are for sure not living any type of life and the fakeness of this is all quite stressful. How can I see you sitting in the cafe right beside me in Kingston, then your Instagram photo shows a photo of you (in Madrid) living it up? It makes no sense, I can literally see you right there!


Deleting my Instagram just feels like the right thing to do now and I've actually been thinking about it for a while but last night the feeling was strong! It's like one extra un-necessary thing I have to think about and it would just be easier to let it go. Based on our statistics, Instagram is one of the places we get the least traffic and the least business interactions -- people are always begging for a free service or pictures rather than wanting to pay for the same.

Sure Social Media is a great way to connect with the rest of the world, get information in real time and promoting but this generation has turned it into something dark.

The account will officially be deleted next Friday but we will continue on Facebook where we first started. 

Tell us how Instagram has impacted your life and it's it's a necessity
