That French..... 'Je Ne Sais Quoi'

Over the course of the fashion week events across the various continents, I have keenly perused street style photos and I must say, the street style photos from the Paris fashion week totally stand out for me. 
The French have been historically known for great style and grace, which in my opinion is absolutely not debatable as this is my blog...haha! C'mon guys its a democracy, what's your take?  
On a second thought, maybe its actually debatable. Maybe, could it just be that, because the French believe in themselves and give off such confidence about their looks and fashion sensibilities, it shines through and forces the rest of the world to accept them as the most stylish nation? You know what they say about beauty shinning through when one is comfortable in ones skin?

The French embrace their individuality and femininity, and it shows in the way they style their outfits to emphasize these. They also understand how good quality and fit contributes to the complete aura that one projects with an outfits. Very stylish and beyond, French women have come to perfectly master the act of effortless chic even in jeans!

While the rest of the world is inundated with following trends and in some cases going over board with their fashion aesthetics . The French remain loyal to the styles and color that suits them. They seem to always manage to make simple, minimalistic yet classic piece for the most part, look stylish, graceful and always timeless.
Enough said, here's a lesson in style from some of my favorite looks straight off the streets of Paris.

  6. what really struck me about most of the outfits is the structure and detailing-almost as if some architect designed each outfit! the first 3 or 4 looks were really beautiful.

    1. True, they say the devil is in the details, I love when an outfit doesn't just look good but the all important details are taken into consideration

  7. The French are doing the trends just like every other nation. They just seem to be a bit more creative with their styling. Love the first image.

    1. True...perhaps its this creativity that sets them apart?
