The Fashion Scoop: French Style Tips

Allover Sequin Open Back DressChic, haute; chances are you’ve heard these French fashion words at some point. From red lips to striped tees, the French are all about embracing less-is-more as their everyday look. But what else makes up their approach to style? Read on for our tips on how to dress oh-so French, from fashion to lifestyle.

Less Black, More Color

An all-black ensemble may be très chic, but color adds life to your look. Next time you’re deciding on a dress for prom or a black tie wedding, go for the one with sparkles or metallic for an unforgettable finish.

Remember fragrance

Paris is known as the city of love, and it’s no surprise since a hint of fragrance is oh-so romantic! When getting ready, perfume is just as important to French gals as the outfit itself. No need to invest in a $100 bottle of Chanel; your signature scent can be anything that gives you that boost of confidence (not to mention smells oh-so yummy!)

Embrace Your Imperfections

The French are all about a natural appearance, from minimal makeup to simple outfits. As in: they don’t like to cover anything up, flaws included. So whether it’s your freckles or crazy laugh, learn to love the things that make you unique! Besides - who said those are imperfections anyways?

Have a Go-To

The secret to ultra-confidence? Knowing exactly what makes you look and feel AH-maze, whether it’s the way the color green brings out your eyes or how a mermaid silhouette makes you curves pop. Once you figure out your go-to look, rock it fearlessly, over and over again.

Don’t Rush

The French are all about enjoying their leisure time. And let’s face it: we tend to be a little too plugged in to our phones, ipads, or fill-in-the-blank, leaving us distracted and in a frenzy. Next time you’re getting dressed for school or heading to your bestie’s house, just breathe and focus on the present moment. Sometimes, it’s A-OK to be fashionably late. After all, better to arrive late than undone! Xo, Camille
