What’s been said about French style that hasn’t been said before? Well, not much, really. Our Gallic neighbours, especially in the capital city, are exceptional dressers. They just know style. It’s as if they are born with it. Their innate understanding of what looks chic is unmatched, and while I know it can seem a little tiresome that we bang on about French fashion, we have a good reason: it never goes out of style.
Today’s history lesson on la mode a la Francaise is the loose-fitting shirt. Thanks to French fashion designerJacquemus’s Bahia tie-front shirts, I’ve been re-thinking the huge-collar trend and thinking about opting for this classic look as worn by French women for years.
