Skinny pants, printed blouses, ballet flats and scarves are the well known mainstays of the cool French girl uniform, with cropped leather jackets on cooler days. I was surprised to see just how many ladies were carrying Longchamp totes and after purchasing one of my own I now understand the popularity. They're roomy, lightweight and perfect for travel. I also noticed a surprising lack of jewelry and makeup while hair was typically worn long and loose. The overall look was cool and chic but not forced...very relaxed.
