French Style Secrets

Chic French style seems to be the key to be effortlessly sophisticated. It is all about feeling comfortable.
Everybody knows the feeling when you dressed up and in the end, it doesn’t feel like ‘you’. That doesn't happen according to French style rules. You wear the outfit and not the other way around. To achieve this, you need a wardrobe full of well-selected pieces that make it easy to create outfits. It simply all goes together!

The key is to have a clear idea about the pieces you are looking for. Invest in quality classics in neutral tones and the occasional red.  

The Ultimate French Style Guide

1. Build A Wardrobe With Classic Pieces

If there is one thing that will help you achieve your best style it is to invest in wardrobe staples. See them as the foundation of your style and wardrobe. 

Here we go:

  1. Le wrap dress
  2. Polkadot blouses
  3. The Breton Stripe
  4. Romantic tops
  5. Scarves
  6. The ultimate vintage jeans
  7. Loafers
  8. Trench coat



2. Don’t Follow Trends

Pick your own personal style, and stick with it. This should come naturally to you because it consists of the type of clothes you feel comfortable and powerful in. Trends come and go. While they can be fun to play with, when it comes to the core of your style and wardrobe this should not play a big role.

Once you have set the basis for your wardrobe, you create a balance. From there you can update your look by selecting some trends that fit you and your wardrobe well. For example, this can be an update of basic staples that keep your look fresh and contemporary. Such as an oversized version the Breton striped top or an extra long version of the trench coat. When you mix some of these trends your outfit will get the best of both worlds: classy and chic, but also fresh and up-to-date.

3. Quality Over Quantity

When it comes to classic pieces you want to enjoy them for as long as possible. Good quality pieced can get even better when you wear them. 

Having a few favorite pieces you never get tired of wearing add more personality to your wardrobe.
