What do French women wear when the weather turns warm? Long and flowing, short and sporty, or just trim and no-nonsense seem to be the major trends I spotted recently. And they aren’t afraid of color, even though black and white maintain a strong presence.
The dress on the right above was striking, even without the over-the-top coiffure and the dressed-to-be-noticed friend in white and yellow. There were lots of long skirts that caught the breeze.
Tops and pants (usually one or the other) also were billowy.
Black and white are popular.
Sneakers reign, including with dresses. My aching feet celebrate this.
Lots of colors, especially red, yellow and mustard.
Florals seem to be popular, especially on pants (like the white and blue ones earlier). Especially large prints on black.
The ones below have that je ne sais quoi easy chic I associate with French style. Absolutely nothing special, nothing to grab attention. Understated. But thought-out, neat, just so, without crossing the line into too much.
Anything here that you would wear (or are)? Are you seeing the same trends? It fascinates me that despite global chains like H&M and Zara, everybody does style a little differently.
