Everyone knows how fashionable French women are. To me, they are the most stylish set of women in the world. They always inspire me with their sense of fashion and style.
French women have always been known to be classy. In my eyes, they are the definition of stylish. And no matter the age, French women have always kept up to date with fashion.
If you want to look trendy the French way and don’t know where to start from, why not follow try these tips. They are so easy, you can literally steal them and own the style.
Keep to a colour scheme that is neutral and not vibrant clashes
The best type of style is the one that is kept simple. The funny thing is that simple may seem a little difficult to pull off than elaborate. But if you want to dress like the French then you need to stick with a neutral set of colours – one or two will do.
The French are not known for being making bold combinations of colours. Instead they stick to a few. This is where your monochrome outfits will come in handy. The most common colours used are black, white, blue, grey and beige.
Capture the relaxed look with loose fitting shirts and tops
The French love comfort and nothing does that better than loose clothing. You don’t have to wear fitting clothes in order to look stylish. To capture that French look, you do not have to accentuate your shape. Your focus should be on making sure that the outfit is a perfect match.
Laid back and French could be as easy as putting on a loose shirt, rolled up at the sleeves over a nice pair of comfortable jeans. You can also try a baggy shirt rolled up at the sleeves and black and white striped trousers.
Go for the stripes
The black and white stripes is a popular French cliché that is still worn today. Taking a cue from the monochromatic style of the French, black and white stripes make a good ensemble for those who want to copy the French style. When it comes to the black and white stripes, the most popular is the striped top or jacket. Style that over a nice pair of black trousers to maintain the monochrome colour scheme.
Less is more
The French style is one that minimalist in nature. From the choice of colour and accessories, a French woman looks stylish, focusing on ensuring that they look simple. The best way to follow this is to tone down on the number of jewelry you use. Don’t overburden your outfit with layering. A simple neutral grey top over black trousers will hit the mark just right.
Add some men’s wear to your range of outfits
Believe it or not adding a masculine touch to your outfit can make you look very French. It not only makes you dress like the French, it also makes you strong and elegant as you maintain some femininity. A tailored black or grey suit would do the trick. Blazers also make a good fit. And, of course, together with a matching clutch purse, high heels and some red lipstick you’ll let your femininity shine through your outfit.
