I’m sure you have all heard a lot about how stylish French women are?! It’s true, you know. They always look 100% perfect from head to toe. And the more I observe French women the more I feel that all we non Frenchies need is a few basic items to make us as stylish as them!
Here’s a list of 3 must haves for that French chic look:-
1. A striped top in a neutral colour – I suggest either white with black stripes or cream with navy stripes.
2. A scarf – I would go with light cotton or silk scarves for spring and early summer and chunky knit scarves for autumn and winter.
3. Flat shoes – Living in France involves a lot of walking, so most of the women here wear flat shoes rather than heels. I’ve seen everything from Converse sneakers for casual looks and oxfords for a slightly masculine twist to flat boots for colder weather.
These three items are classic pieces that will stand the test of time. Add a pair of perfectly fitting dark wash jeans or black trousers and if you need a topper, throw on a fitted blazer, a double breasted trench or a slim cut wool coat depending on the weather. And that’s it, you’re as stylish as the French!
Of course, you can always add your own twist to this look to make it your own. I’m not a big fan of neutral colours, so my take on this classic look is more colourful and fun.
Would you stick to the classic French look? Or add some flair of your own? Do let me know in the comments!
