Voila le highstreet!
So I always love it when things start to come across a little French, cliche or not, there's something inspiring about the way our Gallic counterparts throw things together. As readers of this blog well know, one day it is my aim (when skinny and pouty enough) to always throw this together in this irreverent way. Now the highstreet is determined to make this wish a reality - if somewhat a stereotypical cookie-cutter one.
Not sure how many Parisennes would actually be caught dead wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the Eiffel Tower, or in fact wear polka dots, stripes or even a beret, but a pasty English girl can dream.
With Asos, Urban Outfitters and Topshop as front runners of soon-to-be popular trend, I thought I'd create this little collage of my favorite looks available right now.
It seems that being French requires the following wardrobe requirements:
Breton stripes, plenty of them
Bow embellished, shoes, hair, knitwear, bags
Spots and stripes
Lace and Lanvin-style lady-like jewellery
A mostly black, white and navy pallet with the exception of...
A classic camel trench and..
The odd splash of pale pink.
