5 Ways to Steal a French Girl’s Style

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.

Does Fashion Empower Women

Fashion means a whole lot of things to different people. For some, it means a means of expression. For others, it’s a way to feel good about themselves. Then there are others who see fashion as a movement.

Seeing fashion as way to empower yourself as a woman is something that is most times overlooked by a lot of women. No matter how fashion conscious they might seem, very few women are aware about the type of power fashion delivers. It’s all up to you to be conscious of it and steer it in the direction that will help you grow as a woman.

But can fashion really empower women? I did a bit of research and soul-searching as I’m also into fashion and this is what I got:

Fashion makes you feel confident about yourself

There’s no doubt that looking good makes you feel great about yourself. And when you’re confident, you are able to do things in life fearlessly. For a woman, fashion empowers her to be able to come out of her shell. Fashion gives you that sense of security that you will be respected and heard because people usually address us the way we are dressed. Also, the boost of confidence fashion gives makes a woman feel unstoppable.

Fashion is a good avenue to make a living

Some of the women who venture into fashion industry have been extremely successful. Fashion is a lucrative business and there are so many angles from which you can start a career. From fashion blogging to fashion designing, or a being a personal stylist to sharing and selling courses or training, the options are endless, and the sky is only the beginning.

Being able to create a sustainable living from something that interests you is empowering as it gives you a sense of control over your life. You feel that you are able to support yourself and your family. You also define your income which empowers you to do greater things in life.

Fashion gives you the opportunity to share your message and make an impact

Fashion is expression. It’s a means of telling a story about society. While watching fashion shows on TV, I love listening to the behind-the-scenes interview with fashion designers. I observed that whenever they talk about their collection, there was usually a story behind it and a message they wanted to put out in the world.

Charity shows and fund raisers have been a great way women have impacted society through fashion. Their art through fashion has been an inspiration to several other upcoming designers, who look up to them for the motivation to pursue their dreams.

So does fashion inspire women? Absolutely! It’s all about being able to take fashion leverage on its power to give you the confidence to be yourself, the economic power to live the life of freedom and the ability to share your message and be an inspiration to others.

OOTD: Springtime Staples

It is so windy outside as I write this post, but the fact remains, it is springtime (or is it?), so time to get the Springtime Staples out of the storage and grab some new pieces from the shops, if your wardrobe is in need of a spring fashion update.

I am yet to get my spring/summer clothes out of storage. I plan to sort that out in the next few days, hopefully before the bank holiday weekend next week. At the moment, this confused British weather is really messing with me. It has been up and down as usual this week, dead warm on some days, and painfully cold on some other days, like today. I hear it even snowed in Scotland some days ago.  Can you imagine that in April?

Light layering is the only way to survive spring time fashion, with the ups and downs of the weather. Thankfully, the fashion gurus saw this coming and got us prepared.

 

 

The crazy weather makes dressing up so hard sometimes. You never know how the day would really turn out, so you never know what to wear on such days. It is good to have transitional pieces like what I have on at the ready for when you need it.

Everything I have on here is from my existing wardrobe, no new pieces. I take pride in styling pieces and accessories from my wardrobe in different ways. It gives me joy when I get maximum wear from pieces.
