I find with the French language, it’s often quite formal. Apparently this translates into the fashion as well! Thank you for this video, because I’m going to St. Pierre soon (I know that it’s not technically France, but it is difficult to find videos specifically on St. Pierre) and this is very helpful! 😊

Bonjour Jeanne, wow that will keep me going until Christmas :0Dxx Thank you for the ideas
Jeanne Carstens (16 days ago)
Marie-Anne Lecoeur: I have always wondered what the French women living in the country, wear. How they dress for their lifestyle and still look chic. In the country meaning- on the farm. On a day to day basis. Also - what to wear to be comfy on an airplane and still look chic. Or - advice on haircuts and hair color. What not to do. Merci XX

Anja H. (19 days ago)
I was very disappointed when I spent a couple of days in Paris lately and found almost non of french-chic ladies!!! I think at least in Paris the women wear the same as the women in other European cities, rather comfortable than chic - obviously they all buy their clothes in the same international stores.
Marie-Anne Lecoeur (19 days ago)
Bonjour Anja, I am sorry you were disappointed when you travelled to Paris. I do think that there is a levelling of style with large international stores taking over. Thank you for watching and commenting x

I agree Amethyst, they are. As a French Woman I would never think of trying to advise on American, Italian or any other style.

These are good tips if you want to blend in yes. It's not actually safe in Paris to wear mini skirts or plunging necklines sadly. I live in Paris and just wear what I want.

Life As Marie (1 month ago)
As far as short skirts/shorts I feel there is an age limit on them. If you saw let's say a more mature woman wearing a low cut top and short skirt on it would look quite rediculous. Even when I wear shorter things I always have safety shorts on underneath and a more modest top. Also may be I am just a bit more open about shorter hemlines because I love a good mix between French and Korean style.
Life As Marie (1 month ago)
+Marie-Anne Lecoeur thank you so much! It is a little awkward to look back at it now as that was made when i was in high school, bit i really appreciate that. An yes, I've looked up to both for quite awhile now. French style I would say is more classic and Korean tends to lean on feminine side. I had a friend who studied in both countries and she said both countries put a lot of pride into how they looked. I respect that a lot.
Marie-Anne Lecoeur (1 month ago)
Bonjour Life As Marie, yes I am afraid age does impose limits on what we can wear. It is one of the facts of life. A mix of French and Korean sounds intriguing xx PS you look very pretty in your Make-Up Tutorial xx

Bonjour Marie-Anne! I’m visiting Paris in July of this year and I’ll be with my friends and we like to go out a lot, so I like to look my best! When I go out, I like to wear makeup, partly for style and also to make my skin look a little better. I was wondering what are the attitudes in Paris towards boys who wear makeup? I’d love to know. Fabulous video by the way! Thanks x
Conor O'Brien (1 month ago)
Marie-Anne Lecoeur of course, thank you! I’ll take it all into account. And thank you so much! ❤️❤️
Marie-Anne Lecoeur (1 month ago)
Bonjour Conor, although I do not live in Paris and can not say for sure I would say that like all cosmopolitan cities Paris is a thriving cultural and social mix that welcomes diversity and celebrates people being themselves. Enjoy Paris and what she has to offer but like all cities you may have to be careful at night in areas that may not be visited by tourists and keep your wits about you just as you would in any city area. Your harp playing is wonderful by the way :0)xx

Excellent advice for North America too! Underwear, night clothes, swimsuits, gym clothes worn as normal attire seem to be the new fashions in the US- disgusting!!

What kind of a man thinks that? No red-blooded guy, that's for sure!
LizzyDeBoomBoom (1 month ago)
I have the impression that many Americans are fascinated by the French style, but they do not understand it completely. They still buy a lot of things - if they have perfumes, they have 20-30 bottles, neither one or two distinctive fragrances. If they try to dress in the European style, it is still heavily exaggerated, and the wardrobes are bursting at the seams. This famous "Parisian chic" is nothing but a simple philosophy, not based on consumerism! The style of dress is only a resultant lifestyle, which is very European. Not only Parisian :)

I am not French but I was fortunate to spend summers in Paris as a girl and attend university there. I remember a very different Paris where women wore beautiful clothes, hats, bags and shoes, gorgeous coats and yes they did wear color. I'm so happy I witnessed this time...
Melissa Mu (6 days ago)
true... nowadays understated has turned into obsessively looking like you just got out of bed. Can't wear heels, no make up, hair MUST look messy... it's become a dictatorship of boring. I quite like the rules given in this video, which are the same I had growing up in Naples and Istanbul, but I also find that Parisians have become scared of looking a bit more original or elegant than before, spending a lot of money for looking as if you were constantly tired and neglected is not my cup of tea. Also, many women are still obsessed with being too skinny, wearing jeans and Stan Smiths and never sporting a hair color other than dull dark brown, which again I find boring.

people from Balkans (Turkey, Croatia, serbia..) And east Europe are way more classier than in France , btw i live in Paris and you cant even wear a skirt without being judged or insulted in public . i miss turkey 🇹🇷 thoo 😭
vilieto (1 month ago)
Eastern Europe classy?! That can't be any further from the truth :D People there go for the biggest brand logos, most kitsch and tasteless clothing statements, dress head to toe in fakes from china, wear make-up that half the year doesn't match because they bought it in summertime when they had tan (some would try to combat this by going to solariums or fake tanning), love to demonstrate wealth in every way possible (even if they don't have any), the whole mafia and pornstar aesthetics are the most popular aspiration. Their homes are only a reflection of this and it can be seen from far away - bright colours, brothel-like furniture, biggest tv screens you can possibly fit through the door (even in slums without proper plumbing).

Thoses rules only apply to older woman in my opinion, cause most of them can be worn with good sense of style if done the right way! ;) but thats just my point of view, i believe that fashion is so much more than just ''following the rules''...!!! Rules were made to be broken.

these are not pure french recommendation. this is just "how to look decent woman". works in every country because it is safer to not show up, be like everybody and don't have attention. very small amount of women are brave enough to be extravagant, wear something very sexy or unique. so how this is related to France? why do I need to look like like local? If I am a tourist it is fine to look like tourist, have camera and make lots of pictures and go to tourist places. no matter how I dress you will see I am not french. so why do I need to even try?

False eyelashes and “blingy” clothing, were a big “style” trend, this past winter... here in the US. (False lashes are still a thing, now.) I like a little bling, every now and then... but prefer to do that with jewelry instead of bling on the actual clothing item. And when I do bling, for daytime, it’s a classic set of dangly earrings and matching (understated!) necklace or - at night or for special occasions - a statement piece like a pair of earrings OR a necklace (but never both together!!!) —— Here in the US, another trend I can’t stand is sportswear. It’s so big that some companies have created “daywear” and even some “party wear” around that trend. (shaking my head) And men wearing baseball jerseys and caps and gym shoes, even when going on a date or to a restaurant dinner. (crying)

I don't like to be told what not to wear. I have my own style which can vary from very understated to very loud, depending on my mood. I actually hate these lists of things not to do or not to say or not to wear. These lists seem very popular nowadays, and have a tendency of herd mentally.

I live in London. I am not English. Yesterday i was in a lift with two spotty-greasy haired french ladies in mid 30s and crinkled SuperDry wind jacket. How is that french? This French Style is pretty much a myth. There are French women that have no sense of style/general idea of how to look well groomed. It is not a "no effort look" it is "no effort literally". And I observe that every time i visit France. I hope some french women will watch this video too!

hehe then french probably do not like norway, we love comfy sportswear and backbacks as much of a time as possible. its about being cosy:D and we think red lipstick is tacky, especially for everyday use. maybe only for special ocasions like christmas party. but in general red lipstick not good, more natural colours :D:D

I went to Paris twice looking forward to see great fashion and was greatly disappointed. People wore old fashioned, boring clothes and most had no style at all. Parisian fashion is greatly over-rated. Do you want to see individualistic, interesting personal style? You should go to London, Rome, Stockholm, New York or Tokyo. Not Paris.

I find this interesting as every MAJOR fashion mag for decades and decades and celebrities (I've ever SEEN in fashion spreads I'm talking you Vogue, Vogue Italia, does just the opposite with the weaves, breast hanging out and over the top clothing. and short skirts dresses you name it! I've not seen ANYTHING (bless your heart Karl Lagerfeld) below the top (pardon the pun) coming out of Paris. So I'm not sure what planet this lady is from. I myself love understated and NO make up look, but when I turn on my TV and see news anchors with those hideous PAINTED ON EYEBROWS THAT EVERYONE IS WEARING NOW I WANT TO PUKE! So I am not sure what this lady is even talking about but I can dig it. I wonder if this is code messaging for some reason. I just feel that it is when I see exactly the opposite in mags, featuring the Parisian mystique and runways. No fake eyelashes, honey I see that all day EVERY DAY and isn't that child what's her name, Killie/Kylie a BILLIONAIRE from all this makeup stuff? Somebody's wearing sumpin!!! Amal Clooney who I love! They are all wearing make up and false eyelashes and weaves, maybe not her but you know what I mean!

I'm not sure that you should wear these 7 things anywhere. It's a matter of style, and none of these things are a marque of good style...though, I've seen Parisians wearing micro skirts, sportswear while out and about. Please make number 8 on the list flip-flops. I can't stand those things! Especially platform flip-flops. Everything is so regulated these days--why are we still allowed to wear flip-flops??? LOL! ou en français, MDR!

One should watch those videos......a walking tour of the Champs Elysee, or, traversingthrough the Latin Quartre….nicely dressed?  Where?  The police look sharp.  All polished up.  The citizens?  Not so much.  But then, most of the people walking about are out of towners.  Nice Germans in little blue socks and sandals.  Lots of USA citizens in flip flops.Chinese in what ever....those little hats and ugly shoes and weird weird haircuts.Africans in all sorts of mismatched shirts and trousers.  Lots of trainer shoes on theyounger people.  Oh, and ball caps.  It's like almost everywhere else.  Some people are pretty.  Lots are ordinary.  And then there are the desperately homey.  Bonjour Paris!

Merci! I agree with everything that you said. I cannot believe such rude comments by people. Listen folks - if you want to dress up however - go right ahead. But you are still judged by what you wear and how you look. And the fact that you have no idea what 'chic' is makes me think that you are really not qualified to give your opinion here.

Such a good video! I’m going to Paris in June for the first time (I’ve been wanting to go my entire life) and I’m very much in to styling. I’ve always admired the simplicity yet, sophisticated style of French women. Can’t wait to pack my bags! 😃
mataform (3 months ago)
I think it's so interesting that on the one hand classic style is very attractive but on the other it's also smacks of conformity and the establishment. No I don't like hair extensions/micro skirts/ breasts laid out as if on a plate BUT I do like innovation and self expression and art! Jean-Paul Gaultier came to our night clubs in the Uk because he got inspiration for his clothes. We like to dress up and we are eccentric which means we love art and theatre and self expression. This moves fashion forward otherwise it would be soooo boring. I went to Paris in the 80's as a fashionista punk/ beatnick - my boyfriend had an amazing canary lemon yellow linen suit which we had flicked paint Jackson pollock style and he wore a great Fedora and DM's and the french people were outraged! We got hooted by passing cars wherever we went. It was really funny as we didn't expect it. I love the Uk for being so open and yes often vulgar but out of chaos comes beauty and joy! May I say the lovely lady doing this vid needs to wear a stronger colour! That stone white is not doing her complexion any favours!!.

+Anne sorry but I don't think I was being overly harsh. I called her a 'lovely lady' - which she appears to be - and it may interest you to know she responded by saying she agreed with me that she was looking very pale. If she wasn't perturbed by it why are you? The problem with commenting on anything these days is finding oneself stuck between the over sensitive and the trolls. I subscribe to neither.

I dont fully agree with her guidelines because as a professional artist I enjoy fashion as an expression of self and art. I do dress slightly more conservatively and wear natural makeup and dont show off my body too much but sometimes I do. To me fashion is to be fun and exciting and not full of rules and guidelines. That being said I think you are being overly harsh and that last sentence was uncalled for. She looks lovely in white and I dont think its washing her out at all. You can disagree with constructive criticism and still be kind.

What are you talking about? Paris is not as stylish as you make it look, ive lived there for years and everyonr is different, people wear extensions, make up, maxi skirts... and some people sportswear

Thank you for this fun video. I thought I would tell you, though, that no one says “a no-no” any more in the US! It’s a very dated phrase here. One would more likely just say. Something is “no good,” “not cool,” or “not done.”

Thank goodness I live in France then ;0)

Thank you for this. I have been to Paris two times and I have frequently observed that majority of Parisians do ascribe to this basic rules of fashion. My favorite is the most basic shawl or scarf (which I have no doubt either a Celine or Hermes!) is understated but very elegant.

Lol. Except for the makeup I do all of these things. Wearing pajamas out and about is my favorite. I love to wear neon tops too.

Lol
