Let’s face it ladies, nobody is googling, “How to Dress Like an American Woman.”
In fact, if you google, “How to Dress Like an American Woman” you’ll mostly get articles on how to dress like a French woman.
There’s a reason.
French women know how to create a personal style and they know how to rock it. You can do it too. It isn’t all that difficult. Begin with a beautiful scarf.
The scarf is the quintessential French accessory and EVERY woman in Paris wears one. We were in Paris for six full days and every day I wore one, too.
I must admit that mine were on the slightly more colorful side than most Parisian women were wearing (they wore mostly black and grey), but I certainly felt chic just the same. A big part of being chic and stylish is being aware and sensitive to fashion trends, but also being comfortable with who you are and refusing to be a slave to someone else’s fashion sense. I like colorful scarves and I wore mine with pride. And who knows? Maybe next year really colorful scarves will be worn on the Champs-Elysees and you’ll know who started it first.
Scarf-tying is its own artform, and I almost came to wonder if every woman on the streets of Paris had her own signature scarf tie because they all looked just a little bit different.
