It’s time to meet the latest style guru on our radar – Parisian blogger, Betty Autier. Updating us with daily outfits on her site Blog de Betty, she’s a great source of inspiration for French-girl chic. With summer on its way, we thought she’d be the perfect candidate to style up some of our latest trends. Putting her signature stamp on Topshop styles, see Betty wow in hot summer prints mixed with cool crop tops, finished with glossy brunette locks and that certain je ne sais quoi.
Want to know her style secrets? We caught up with her on ‘80s influences and her dream holiday packing list.
How would you describe your style?
Quite eclectic! I love too many different styles to restrict myself to just one. I’m just as comfortable in leather skinnies and studded boots as I am in a maxi dress or a pair of dungarees. I love ’80s staples like sequins, beautiful leather pieces and denim.
What piece will you be wearing again and again this summer?
I can’t live without my denim hotpants in summer. Whether they’re plain, colourful, customised, washed out or studded… I want them all!
Do you have any holiday plans this summer?
I’m going to spend part of the summer in LA for work (and also for fun!). For the rest, I’m craving deserted beaches, postcard landscapes, fresh food, quality time with my friends and strolls in the countryside.
What’s on your packing list?
A waterproof camera to take snaps underwater, my entire collection of shorts, sunglasses, loads of summer dresses and sandals – especially espadrilles! I need hundreds of them as I like to wear a different pair everyday.
What’s on your playlist right now?
I’m very nostalgic with music and my playlist features old-school summer hits, Spice Girls and rap.
Are there any secrets to creating a good blog?
Be creative! Don’t try to copy what has be done before. There are so many blogs out there that you need to surprise people and stand out from the crowd. You will only succeed with passion and love.
