The Secrets About French Style

Who doesn’t want to be a Parisian girl? We always wonder how come those French girls/ladies have created a style with such an easy and elegant way. Their style is simple, but at the same time, sophisticated. Although we could find their pretty pictures in almost every fashion magazines which even are coming with editors’ interpretations, we still fail to follow this style.

So what are the secrets about French style? What didn’t those editors tell you? After studying the newest French trends both on Fashion magazines and social media, I found 5 items that appear very often, and , for sure, they definitely are the highlights of French looks.

White wide-leg trousers is the easiest way to create an easy and simple style. Also, compare to other colors, white is a more gentle and elegant color, which is more suitable for most of the ladies who want to give French style the first try.

Skinny silk scarf is going to be your another choice for French style. This kind of scarfs can be multifunctional: you either could wrap it on your neck with a simple knot, or use it as a special hair band. Both ways can elegance and charm to your look.  However, for silk scarf, you’d better have one with high quality, because the quality and exquisite workmanship is the key of French style.

3. Clifflink

Who said cliff links are men’s exclusives? Now, cliff links have been redefined by French ladies. A pair of delicate and artful cliff links on your white shirt can really be a highlight.  Thinking of why would French women choose this item reminds me of Coco Chanel who disagree that women should not wear pants like men.
