What influences the local style of your city? Paris is known as the fashion capital o the world, and indeed, fashion is a part of our culture. Maybe the local style is influenced by the beautiful views and classic buildings of the city. I always choose clothes that are comfortable to wear. At the moment, I love fluorescent shades, especially green and orange. This season, I want to try wearing Wide Leg Pants in different outfits as I discover new spots in my city and spend time with my children.

What influences the local style of your city? There are all kinds of shops and fashionable people in Paris, so I think there is a synergy between them. A current trend is pairing neutral shades with fluorescent colors. I personally like classic items, so I often wear neutral tones with pastels. I'm a mom of a young child, so comfort is important, too. I love mixing up styles, like pairing loose and tight pieces or adding a feminine touch to masculine styles.

What are your styling tips for wide leg pants? When I wear wide leg pants I adjust the volume of the outfit by tucking the top in or tolling up the sleeves of the T-shirt. I like pairing chunky sneakers with wide pieces, but it's important to create contrast, like adding socks, so the look is not too boyish.
