French Dressing...clair

French Dressing 2

This is a lighter take on the chic French girl uni and one that I saw more and more as the weather got warmer. I previously noted the amount of Longchamp totes I spotted around town but Louis Vuitton handbags are still tops in Paris. Simple metallic touches and a colorful scarf keep this monochromatic ensemble from looking too flat. When hair wasn't worn down a sleek topknot was worn instead.

French Dressing 1
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.
