The 4 Trends This Parisian Mother Borrows From Her Daughters

What's better than one chic Parisian? How about an entire family of well-dressed French women? I've been following sisters Salomé and Tamara Mory on Instagram for quite some time, but I recently discovered that their mother, Elisabeth Mory, is equally stylish. 

Curious about the Mory matriarch's style, I interviewed Elizabeth about her favourite autumn outfits and shopping methods. "When it comes to my personal style, I would not describe myself as a fashionista," Elizabeth told Who What Wear. "I have only a small list of brands that I love and then I buy the same dress, top, or pair of jeans in different versions. I am a less-is-more kind of person. So my ideal outfit is a good pair of jeans, the perfect T-shirt, and strong accessories. Or, a beautiful dress that you can wear at the beach with flip flops or at night with heels. A journalist from French Vogue described me as the incarnation of the Parisian. That might be true."

I went on to ask Elizabeth to compare and contrast how she dresses versus her daughters. "The girls' style is quite close to mine, but I think they are more open to different brands and silhouettes than me. Also, they can wear mini skirts which I love but can no longer wear in town—for age reasons." We're certainly proponents of all ages wearing anything they please, but it always comes down to personal preference.

Scroll down to shop the four autumn trends Elizabeth would borrow from her daughters, Salomé and Tamara. 

1. Shearling-Trim Jackets

"I would love to borrow my daughter's Acne shearling jacket, so I will not be afraid of the cold weather's arrival."

I'd wear this with wide-leg jeans for a touch of '70s flair. 

2. Oversized Blazers

"I would borrow my daughter's oversized blazer from Musier because of the perfect material and cut. I would wear it over a printed midi dress or with a good pair of '90s jeans."

A faux leather blazer is a piece I don't own yet, but am now convinced I need. 

Thanks to the jersey fabric, this slouchy blazer is a lot more comfortable than your average stiff jacket.

This beautiful jacket will still be chic in 15 years—promise. 

3. Mini Bags

"I also love Tamara's '90s-style mini leather bag from By Far in the burgundy colour. The colour and shape make it the perfect final touch for fall outfits."

Accessories are also part of the leather craze for autumn. 

4. Flat Sandals

"I would love to wear my daughter's Chanel denim sandals. They made me dream this summer and I would wear them with midi or maxi dresses until the weather is too cold to show my toes." 

Chanel will always be on my dream wish list. 

These oversized buckles are a fresh spin on classic Birkenstock sandals.
