Le Freak, C'est Chic!
When I think of effortlessly chic fashion. I think of the French. There is something so incredibly feminine and crisp about French style. Nothing is overdone, and it all looks and feels so fresh, uncomplicated and most importantly - fun. With women like Julia Sarr Jamois, Jane Birkin and Audrey Tautou as my French style-spiration, i've been experimenting with simplifying my style, and focusing on comfort, neatness and splashes of colour here and there.
With the weather going from hailstones to blue sunny skies within the hour, my Spring/Summer wardrobe is quite the mishmash of textures, shapes and colours, but my uniform as of late has been girlfriend fit jeans, a baggy tee, a duster coat or faux leather jacket and some trainers or clogs, like this pair of bright red ones that I bought from fellow clog enthusiast Kristabel.
There is something that feels so oddly glam about being dressed down, but putting every piece together with effort if that makes sense. For examples, the splashes of red in this outfit is what makes it just a little bit more interesting and not boring. It feels like I'm writing a phd on the subject of simplicity so i'll leave it here. But what are your thoughts on French style? And who do you think wins in battle of the most stylish countries? I'd say Nigeria comes second, but i may be just a little biased… ;)
