Fashion Enthusiast, Passionate about developing and creating beauty routine homemade tips. Make up is my hobby.
For me, style should be comfortable personal and timeless. Although, sometimes it can get quite challenging. I always thought that the « Je Ne Sais Quoi » Chic French Style was elegant. I don’t know why, but I never get it right. This did not change until I met a typically French woman who was a friend of a friend of mine. I learnt a lot about timeless style from her. For her « The main goal of French style is to be effortless, modern and elegant, and when you think of it, three words come to your mind which are simplicity, style and sophistication. » We share the same style philosophy which is « Fashion is Attitude ». In addition, the so called ‘French Style’ is not all always about clothes, but also about attitude.
To get that French style, there are some basic tips to help you be inspired.
TIMELESS PIECES ARE THE KEY
Elegance is not about trendy pieces, it’s about being timeless because timeless is always trendy. Chic quality items over quantity because looking elegant in cheap fabrics is hard. Therefore it is preferable to choose stylish classics over faddish styles.
FIND YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE
Find your signature style or maybe styles that work for you. Fabrics and colors both included. Know and make sure to stick to your own defining style.
FIT THE CLOTHES
Fitting is everything, looking chic in an outfit that doesn’t fit you is hard. Make it your friend. Your outfit should be well tailored and tidy in appearance.
ACCESSORIZE YOUR STYLE
When you find yourself trying to wear more than three pieces of jewelry, you know that you’ve made the wrong combination. Consequently, more than three will just confuse your look. Accessories should never be an afterthought, they are part of your signature and style. Don’t save them for special occasions. Every day is a special occasion.
Additionally, perfect manners are the most sophisticated accessory any woman can have.
MIX POSTURE WITH ATTITUDE
Wear your clothes with attitude, French style is not always about clothes, it’s more about attitude. In fact, it is about how you move and walk. Sexiness, and refinement come from the way you walk and hold yourself. Similarly, it comes from how you cross your legs and how you open your bag. I actually get compliments every time I open my Felt-Cabas bag by Maison Mayshad. By the way, speaking of the Maison Mayshad bags, did you check the new color?
Do not forget to smile and keep the positive attitude, you are a MAYSHAD WOMAN!
NEUTRAL YOUR COLORS
Always go with the flattering neutral colors. Again, to be more specific, I am talking about navy, black, gray, brown, white, beige, cream and olive green.
