Vive la France: French Style Icons

via

When it comes to fashion, no one does it better than the Parisians. And even though Detroit (or Dé-troit) is known as the Paris of the West because of our incredible architecture, the French have us beat in the style department. Their style is effortless, their beauty natural, and they are experts in mixing uptown glamour with downtown cool.

Put together, but not too perfect. Polished, but not stuffy. They just exude a certain element of “je ne sais quoi” that keeps them looking très chic.

So in honor of Bastille Day, let’s break out the macaroons, pull on our stripe tees and toast to the women who make fashion look oh so good.
