the GET­AWAY PARIS

A day out in the city of lights gives Fash­ion & Style Di­rec­tor Azza Arif the chance to turn on her Parisian style.

“On my first trip down to Paris, I re­mem­ber it be­ing ex­tremely chilly with light rain. I dressed for prac­ti­cal­ity: Ver­sace flat boots and a thick black jacket over denim. Only when I met up with my close friend Lily who was wear­ing a bloom­ing flo­ral trench and bold, red lips did I feel quite un­der­dressed. Of course, this is Paris! There is no such thing as be­ing over­dressed when it comes to dress­ing like a Parisian.”

FASH­ION STOP

“Sum­mer is the per­fect time to visit Paris, but sadly, my trips al­ways oc­cur dur­ing fall. De­spite the season, the city is con­stantly buzzing with tourists ex­plor­ing pic­turesque views, or in­dulging in scrump­tious French cuisines and desserts. When it comes to fash­ion, Parisian style is a state of mind. The lo­cals al­ways ex­ude ef­fort­less el­e­gant style.”

ON THE OLD TOWN

The longer my stay, the deeper I fall in love with Pa­ree. Espe­cially when strolling after 5pm, look­ing out at the golden rays of light that streak through the city’s side­walks. My favourite place to go is the Palace of Ver­sailles – there’s al­ways some­thing dif­fer­ent to ex­pe­ri­ence, no mat­ter how many times you’ve set foot on the Ver­sailles. The gar­dens, the cas­tle, ev­ery­thing is just so un­be­liev­ably beau­ti­ful and grand, from the colour to the fur­nish­ings.
