Tips on Buying French Clothing

Published at 03/26/2012 21:03:28


 French clothing was classified as chic, sexy and sleek. These are only the main adjectives attributed to French outfits. Famous designers like Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton and Givenchy made their point when they created garments. Of course, their vision was not something that could have been understood by anyone, but nonetheless, it can be appreciated. French clothing is regarded as the most stylish and trendy, thus it became known worldwide. There is nothing unusual in seeing a woman act like she has fallen in love when she enters a French clothing store. However, not many men can understand that reaction, but most cope with it. Plus, many guys have adopted this style too, especially those who passed the age of 20. Here are some tips that may come in handy when you want to purchase French clothes.

Step 1

Tip 1: Do not get fooled by the description. Of course, French clothing is regarded as chic and fancy, but that does not mean that you have to buy clothes full of glam and glitter. The secret stands in the fact that each woman should highlight her best features. For example, if she has nice curves, she can outline that body part with a high waist skirt.

Step 2

Tip 2: Avoid bold colours and patterns. Many people have the impression that French clothing is also colourful. It is true in some cases, but the most important thing is that the attention is driven to the right place. For example, if you have a nice face, you can wear a red hat that goes with your lipstick and your jacket, but you must tone it down with neutral colours. However, in general, try to avoid wearing too many bold colours and patterns. This is not French style at all.

Step 3

Tip 3: Embrace the French clothing colour palette. If you really want to adopt a French style, start wearing neutral and earthy colours. White, brown, beige and black are perfect for French outfits. Nonetheless, muted green, purple or red are also acceptable and go along great with neutral colours. This will make you look classy and your outfit will be highly rated.

Step 4

Tip 4: Do not wear the flashiest clothes. French clothing does not tolerate that style. Parisian women know very well how to dress in order to look good even if they cover their whole body. Mix classic style with trendy and you will get the perfect combination. If you manage to add something special to the outfit, something that will give it a particular touch, then you really know what French clothing refers to.

Step 5

Tip 5: Wear the accessory specific to French style. They say the scarf cannot be absent. If you will pay attention to most French women’s outfits you will notice that they wear a scarf even if it is placed on their handbag. Actually, you do not need to wear it around your neck, but this is one item that must not be left at home. Scarfs are those that give you the real French touch.


French clothing is about drawing attention on you by highlighting only your best feature. It is as simple as that.
