The allure of French style lies in its timeless simplicity; a swipe of red lipstick, a printed neck scarf, a striped shirt, a ballet flat. No matter what your age or style sensibility, there is always a way to channel that effortless vibe that has been so perfected by French women. For spring, we’re emulating the classic style with just four products.
Start by enlivening your basics with a printed silk scarf like our spring edition version from Chan Luu. You can tie it in a multitude of ways, but we love knotting it once to the side, and letting the tails hang forward. For an extra French vibe, wrap it multiple times around your neck and tie the ends at the side.
Simplicity is key, which is why French women typically carry classic bags. Instead of a brightly colored or embellished clutch, reach for a sleek leather envelope clutch, like the Tribe Alive style from our spring box, to add a dose of understated polish to your ensemble. If you need to carry more items, opt for a black top-handle tote.
In lieu of statement earrings or stacked rings, add a delicate bracelet. Whether you wear them mixed with other dainty bracelets, layered with your watch or wear one on each wrist, the Michelle Campbell bangles in the spring box offer the ultimate in everyday glamour.
Add a swipe of whatever red lipstick suits you best. (We’re partial to a version with a hint of blue because it brightens teeth and the whites of the eyes.) Finish with a swipe of mascara and a spritz of your favorite perfume.
