Emmanuelle Alt’s muted mélange

As editor of French Vogue, Emmanuelle Alt’s Gallic chic is a stand-out of Paris Fashion Week. This time, she’s using tux tailoring to show off her style. "

The Vogue editor knows a thing or two about style – like how to keep an outfit simple, uncomplicated and utterly chic. A muted palette of the same shades of black, white and grey spells instant city style.

Jeans, a shirt and a blazer can run the risk of looking too office-ready, but simply adjusting your cuffs goes a long way to keep you firmly on the street. Emmanuelle rolls up her sleeves and pairs with similarly cropped denim for a fresher look.

A kitten heel can often mean demure and ladylike, but opting for a pointed pair in sleek black leather and with a high ankle strap, adds an edge.

We love a tuxedo jacket, but sometimes its masculine charm needs a little softening around the edges. Emmanuelle has tied a satin tie around the middle to cinch the waist, adding a flattering femininity.

Parisian women are the queens of casual chic, and the cherry on top of a low-key luxe outfit is a low-maintenance beauty look to match. Simple straight locks paired with barely-there makeup adds up to a relaxed vibe.
