This time of year my outfits often feel a bit bougie. So, to right the ship, I turn to my fav style bible The New Garconne: How to be a Modern Gentlewoman by Navaz Batliwalla. Inspired by the profiles on chic, modern women, this book is my go-to style compass.
One of my favorite profiles is on Sophie Hersan, co-founder of Vestiaire Collective. Everything Ms. Hersan wears is classic, yet she makes a simple white shirt and jeans — accessorized with a Kelly bag, tank watch, and pumps — look incredibly chic. Maybe it’s a French thing.
