Personally, I think the way to be fashionable is to be timeless. Wear things that are flattering to you and speak to your personality. Buy classic lines and colors. Add one or two trendy items. Trends come and go, and to me a lot of these trends read as ‘young’…and now that I’m 40, I don’t think it’s attractive to dress like a teen. It’s more important to have a signature style. I have a friend who wears all-natural fabrics, lose to the skin, in neutral colors (traveler, tea lover, education professional). I have another friend who favors overalls and shirts with funny pictures (scientist, nature enthusiast, higher education). For myself, I’m rocking florals, pastels, classic black, and dresses/skirts (historian, educator, traveler, romantic/cottagecore personality). While we switch it up, it’s instantly obvious that something is or isn’t our style.
Just wear what you want and tell people it’s French. 😉
