4 Simple rules for over 40s petite girls how to dress like a French women.
1. Less is More
When I think about French style for women, the key word is alway chic. No matter how the trends comes and goes, less is More is still very true for the core of French women style. For example, in this outfit, since I am wearing a hat, I will not wear statement earrings. I have one bright color on, I will not wear a second bright color.
2. Natural Colors Clothing Plus Red Accessories
French women don’t just have one style. Like us, different age group and different areas has very different styles. But in general, they like to wear natural colors most time of the year, especially black. When they go out for a date, or a dinner, they usually reach to some red accessories, a hat, a scarf, a bag, or bright red lip sticks.
3. Pick One French Style Staple Piece to Start With
In this outfit, the absolute French style staple piece is the red beret hat. After picking out the core piece, we can build on the whole outfit by using the rule #2 above. Keeping the clothing pieces in the natural colors palette and only use one bright color as the accessories.
4. Show Some Skin
Showing some skin in a tasteful way is another way that French women to achieve the effortless sexy look. In fact, being a petite woman, it is always a good way to balance the promotions too. I always stick with above the knee skirt or dress if my top is quite covered. If my bottom is fully covered, I usually pick a v-neck top to balance it out.
