They say that stereotypes exist for a reason, and that’s just as true when is comes to fashion as it does the rest of life. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule but as a whole, they can be pretty spot on.

For example, the always ever so chic French. (With icons like Coco Chanel, Francoise Hardy and Brigitte Bardot setting the stage, it’s hard to go wrong.) 

French girls have a simple, effortless look that always has that – dare I say it – Je ne sais quoi. They go for simple and understated, but never sacrifice quality. They make casual, chic and they embrace the power of the flat.

Since they value quality over quantity, they invest in a lot of neutrals that easily mix and match (read: BLACK). They know what looks good – and they stick with it.

I bet they really love turtlenecks too.
