One of the things that surprised me most about Paris was the lack of “high fashion” I had imagined…there were no sky-high gladiator heels, platformed pumps, sweater dresses, or trendy statement necklaces. Yet every single French woman had a laid back, gorgeous style and fashion that knocked me flat. They could wear a pair of jeans, a t-shirt, boots and a scarf with the panache of a runway model. How?! I asked. The fashion lesson I learned from the French is a simple one: be confident and feel lovely in whatever you are wearing, and voila! instant fashion.
The beautiful Garance Dore has post about this very phenomenon today on her blog. Check it out here. :)
