Looking youthful is a difficult balancing act but there are plenty of over 40 women doing it well. For a youthful pick-me-up, give your black outfits a break and test out pops of colors. You can keep things simple with one shade or have fun with multiple hues such as the lady at 0:15, 0:56 and 1:36 (the lady with the orange leather bag...perfection). Another tip to try is tailoring. French women make frequent trips to their tailor for alterations, something I learned from my French friends. I have been having my shirts/tops' hem taken up since then...even an inch can make a big difference, as a too long top can overwhelm a petite frame like mine for example. Your entire wardrobe can get an instant upgrade with tailoring (a topic I will cover in another video). this is an affordable way of looking your best in your clothes. A dash of daring in the form of leather pants or a skirt can also make years disappear. The ladies at 1:05 and 2:30 are perfect examples of this. They look very trendy without trying too hard. A modern haircut makes a difference too. For example, the lady at 4:49 with her short gray hairdo looks divine. A shorter cut thickens and gives body to thinning hair. A modern haircut and regular trims keeps it modern and youthful. The bottom line is there is no need for a major change. If you are in great shape and feel great in your skinny jeans, why not wear them? The ladies at 1:23, 1:28, 2:05, 3:38 look amazing. My favorite look? The lady in the mini skirt with opaque tights, ankle boots and a beanie. Fabulous and youthful! Have a beautiful weekend.

French women used to look so great at one time in stylish dresses and tights. What happened?
Assoluto Cosmico (7 months ago)
I always felt these type of effortless looks look great on slim caucasian/european looking people. Anyone else just feels weird. I've tried it but it doesnt look good in me. Feels forced and very messy. I have to put alot of effort just to look presentable.

Another couple of months...

Wow so many cross body bags, I love it! Must be very popular in Paris. It's the only type of bag I've ever really loved and continue to wear after so many years. It's practical and I love having my hands free. Great video, really enjoyed it. Everyone is very stylish. My friend is in Paris at the moment. Half expected to see her in this video lol. Ahh to be there too! Thank you 😊
ILoveParis (9 months ago)
Me too. I also like the new bejeweled cross body bags, like a piece of jewelry. Thank you so much and have a beautiful day.

More women need to wear pantyhose. They look so much more stylish than regular legs or jeans

Parisians have streets that they actually can walk on and go to for shopping and work but, in Ottawa we have few streets in downtown only and in our long winter are covered with snow and ice! We are hurried people driving in our cars and happy cause we don’t know any better😉
ILoveParis (9 months ago)
It is the same in Los Angeles minus the weather.

Love the videos. But wonder about the title? Why “youthful”? Why not Fashionable over forty? I know I don’t want to be younger! I love 55!
ILoveParis (9 months ago)
I do...I guess that’s why...but I love your title😘😘😘

Every single person looks so nice; nice coats, scarves, boots, handbags! The men too! And all so slim. So inspirational Walk everywhere and make an effort to look nice no matter how much money you make. Thank you! Love your videos.
ILoveParis (9 months ago)
Thank you so much. I like your comment about the effort. When I am in Los Angeles, I don’t feel like I have to make that effort because everybody is athletic attire.

Over the past couple of years (after reading Parisian Chic by ines de la Fressange) I finally have a wardrobe built around basic black and neutrals along with quality shoes and handbags!! I am still working on the Je na sais quoi confidence and attitude of the Parisian woman!!! Thank you for sharing! I could people watch for hours!!!❤️
Agnes Laufer (9 months ago)
Karen I , fantastique I love Ines and also Emmanuelle Alt. I built my wardrobe according to Alt outfits. Those people look beautiful. <3
ILoveParis (9 months ago)
Dear Karen, to acquire that "je ne sais quoi" self confidence, hold your head high, throw your shoulders back, smile gently...you'll see the difference.
Debi Basile (9 months ago)
Love the looks. The worker was great.
Sadie DeSimone (2 months ago)
Debi Basile , looks like couple at 1:24 are American tourists? White sneakers on the man, woman with too many colors for French chic.
ILoveParis (9 months ago)
He was a sweetheart...
Inez (9 months ago)
And a lot of cross body bags as well. I didn't find your favorite look of style though...
ILoveParis (9 months ago)
She is at 3:35. Thank you.
Adele Elzinga (9 months ago)
Some really unsophisticated ugly handbags. I’m very surprised they don’t need to be designer to be attractive.
Laura Light (8 months ago)
I saw a lot of beautiful leather bags, Parisians are classic not trendy
ILoveParis (9 months ago)
Parisians don't like logos, designer handbags, etc. A good quality leather handbag would do for them.
