The French Women Style
Why do we want to dress like french women? The allure of the french women style is so popular that almost every blogger has written about it. Their effortless styling seems to be easy and uncomplicated. But its not random at all. French women seem to have a code they follow when dressing for the day. Parisian women look elegant and polished but not overdone.
Wearing bright red lipstick would be paired with mascara and no eye shadow. The face would be clean with a light handed application to bronzer and blush. You may want to pencil your brows with a strong polished line. I love wearing a bright red lipstick with just a touch of mascara. I feel if you are going to wear red on your lips you should have the rest of your makeup take a break. That is how french women make red lipstick less vampy.
My beautiful mom has always been a red lipstick wearer. She has always reminded me of those french women who look like they wear red everyday. Sometimes i feel like its a bit much, but if i par down the rest, it seems to come out very classy. Thats where you want to be, a lot classy a tiny bit sexy.
“When wearing something really chic, you go easy on the makeup, and if you’re wearing only a shirt and a pair of jeans, a red lipstick could do the trick. We don’t really show off; we like simplicity.” — Typhaine Augusto of Cuillère à Absinthe
Everyone should have a stripped shirt in their closet. This is a must for putting together a french women inspired outfit. From a button up shirt to a t-shirt the stripped shirt provides a classic look that can be dressed up or down.
When i think of French women wearing flat shoes i immediately think of Jackie-O and her impeccable style. French women usually don’t wear super high heels. You will see them in trendy flats of all colors. I especially like pointy toed flats that give the outfit a bit of edge while still being classy. The trick is to not overdo it.
Black Leather Jacket
A black leather jacket is a staple for the french women style. You will see them wearing it with a solid t-shirt and jeans. If course it wouldn’t be complete with some flats. You can also stay true to french women style by wearing your jacket over a skirt or dress.
The classic bag for french styling can be structured with minimal embellishments. Think Chanel or Chloe and most French women will wear it in black. The French women style is usually a collection of black and white items.
