I agree with #6!!!!!..... gym wear..... yoga pants.. . gym leggings should stay in the gym............
I know....... it's just IMO!!!.......
I am from the 80s generation...... what have we been teaching our youth!?....... take the time to dress up.........
I miss the football player shoulder pads and Aquanet hair!!!!.....
I completely agree with you. I think I am considered OLD & old fashioned, but, I think America has “dumbed down” on many things and I wish there were a more “humble - pride” in our everyday lives. (Yes, I know that is not a word, and Yes, I am American, and proud to be, and yes, I am older. However, the Bible instructs “the older to teach the younger”).
Thank you for sharing.
Style parisien ou élégance tout court ???? Le style actuel est le Gilet Jaune, qui va avec tout, dit Karl Lagerfeld, tellement il est moche. Quant à l'élégance, elle se veut tellement sexy-égalitaire, qu'elle n'a plus de charme. Mon élégance "à moi" est le "linguist spirit". Ne cherchez pas, c'est top secret.
Paris and France has such a variety of style which is expected from the fashion capital however this video is only for one style and is an example for the cliché French fashion so instead of saying that these are fashion styles you ‘should not wear in France’ it should be changed to ‘what you shouldn’t wear to be Classic French Chic’
These are general fashion guidelines for any country. I must agree; there is nothing worse than seeing a woman dressed garishly, tacky or inappropriately. It automatically tells the world; that your careless, immature and not very smart. We live in a wonderfully fashion forward world now; with so many chic urban elegant looks. It's hard for me to understand why a women would layer herself in bad choices like: heavy makeup, track suits, stiletto pumps, micro mini skirts / dresses and tacky clothing. Life is too short - to wear "bad" clothing. Dress for success. Classic choices can be urban and very fashion forward; when paired with the right: accessories, boots, shoes, sunglasses and hand bag.
Sweatpants can be very elegant and most of all they are so incredible comfortable. In Holland is is very trendy to wear them on a daily basis. I think someone's attitude and radiance are much more important than clothing.
+Marie-Anne Lecoeur In Holland we call it "sportbroek" or more often a "jogger" . But in y opinion many people are very badly dressed and could look much much better and indeed look dreadful in their SWEATpants. But it often depends on someone' s overweight (!) and bad posture/ attitude and depressed grey faces that they look so terrible. My joggers are tight and i have no overweight ;)
I agree with your statement 'someone's attitude and radiance are much more important than clothing.' However, what a pity to hide this radiance with sweatpants. I cannot describe sweatpants as elegant for many reasons, one of which is in the name itself (i.e 'sweat'). :0)
I luv it I like to dress that way, was an unpleasant surprise to find out how British woman use so much make up fake hair, eye lashes etc etc all the opposite of what I was expecting😯 to be honest no classy 👎🏻
reason why vive la France 🇫🇷 🥰
When I was 7 my American mother caught me trying to wear too much jewelry at once and told me not to do that. I think that there is a certain type of American who follows her guidelines exactly. Her advice would work anywhere, especially if you want to be taken seriously
Bonjour Marie-Anne! J'ai habite Paris tot dans les annes quatre-vingt et je l'adore! Je veux dire que tous ces choses sont du mauvais gout meme chez nous! Je viens de souscrire a votre chaine! Merci! Connie
most american women have tout a fait no style. they shove their enormous backsides into yoga pants, wear their dresses much too short and for the most part, appear to be quite masculine. oh dear! vive la france!
Elegance and understatement ... yes!
Absolutely superb advice in any culture.
I adore French style. It’s terribly sad to see American women often painting their faces like clowns, they have no idea how horrible and fake they look. Not all women do this, but it seems to have become more prevalent in society now. It’s refreshing to be in France and see women secure and comfortable with their natural beauty!
Merci! Bisous Bisous!
I don't disagree with any of these guidelines for classic chic style, thanks for sharing them. But I don't like that you assume that these are unique to the French and also generalise across "most" French women (all 34+ million of them). There doesn't seem much room for individual self expression in your Paris. Also when you call them "no-no's" and judgementally "forbid" things I want to come to Paris (home of moulin rouge and paradis latin btw) and dance in front of your appartement wearing low cut neon sports wear, high heels, hair extensions and a *lavish* samba headdress!
Well I’ve never been there but I feel the same way about everything you mentioned. I think it’s very unattractive when girls or women wear their makeup and it looks like they have racing stripes because they didn’t blend their blush. Anyway thanks for sharing sharing your knowledge. 👍🏻👍🏻💜🦋
These are perfect. So many Americans have no idea and it's embarrassing for those who try to be sensitive to their surroundings! But it seems you have not mentioned shoes. Perhaps you are talking about shoes in another episode. I cannot stand flip-flops, here or abroad. I don't know why they are so popular here!
Thank you, Marie-Anne
In Paris and Milan that are fashion entitled places, locals judge tourists by their looks. In order to avoid theft, scam or mistreatment one must disguise as a local. It is obnoxious, prejudiced and sad but true. Just wear anything black or beige. Or both. And scarves.
I am reading all of the comments with much amusement. Everywhere I go in the city where I live (in America) most people look like slobs. Women wear their "best" mens' t-shirts, poorly fitting jeans OR leggings on asses that nobody should be subjected to see. America should be ashamed of itself. I realize this is a generalization so don't call me out on it, But over my lifetime I've seen self-respect as far as dressing eroding with every decade. It doesn't take any more effort to put on something nice than it does to look like a slob. Come on ladies. Don't use the excuse "I'm American, I can do what I want." Stop eating garbage food. Start exercising. Put on some nice clothes. No excuses. Stop being lazy.
I change with the time, I feel better with long shirts 👚 and some jackets 🧥 and cardigans and scarfs🧣 ... but I think the French look is very chic when you say that, is because they use some things that are very specific things that are great 👍. And are minimalist! 😉. In America we use a lot of clothes! 😩 and we can’t combine like them. 🤫
When I travel around the streets of any European city, I’m wearing nice slim black jeans, a little black cardigan, black flats, and small silver earrings. My hair is in a neat ponytail. I carry a black bag. I walk with confidence, I blend in, and I’m often mistaken for a local.
I wish it was like this here in the U.S., especially regarding too-short hemlines (longer lines elongate the body and make women look more sophisticated, classy), too much makeup, and especially all the hideous fakery (those big, thick, gloppy acrylic nails are UGLY UGLY UGLY). Imagine all the time and money we could save if we went with sophisticated understatement.
Do you think all this understatement is an overreaction to the extraordinarily ornate, lavish, and some would even say garish decoration of the French architecture that was so popular for centuries? Hotels, castles, public building, museums???? Not exactly toned down there. I happen to think most Parisian women look a bit boring and on no level think they are the most chic and beautiful women in the world. Let them eat cake.
Wonderful suggestions that I try to do in my every day life here on the East Coast in America I don’t really care what other people wear however it is always nice to know what the customs and norms are in foreign places. Perhaps when a person honors the customs they will blend and fit in with the local population and the travel experience is enhanced
Je suis née à Paris, j'y reviens très régulièrement pour voir ma famille et je ne crois pas qu'il y ait toutes ces règles et codes vestimentaires que vous décrivez... Surtout depuis une quinzaine d'années....le niveau général a beaucoup baissé et en particulier, je note un relâchement complet dans la façon de s'habiller...tout le monde s'habille comme il veut, du plus BCBG au plus extravagant......et les parisiens se moquent bien des règles en la matière...
I believe she’s talking about strolling on the avenue in Paris . At a private party I’m sure exotic wear is welcome. Certainly on women under age 35. But when any woman goes around with miniskirts , big cleavage, heavy fake makeup 💄 garish colors... she is seen as tactless, trashy and an easy mark for trashy males to chase... anywhere in the world. N’est ce pas?
No neon colors, no fake lashes or extensions, no heavy makeup, no extravagances.... jeez, you make Paris sound very very boring and "old". Luckily, all the times I got there I saw for myself that it's not that way :)
Well went to Paris ,people are very natural nothing over the top!
I wear whatever I usually wear and I did perfect( even got compliments because I stand out a little )
Lady on the video is right. 🙂
Everything there is been classy.This is way Jackie Kennedy did so well in Paris☺
I’m sure there are women in Paris with hair extensions. As far as dressing modest, classy and not wearing clown-like makeup, that sounds great to me since that’s how I generally dress. Maybe hair extensions that look fake shouldn’t be worn but I think those shouldn’t be worn anywhere. Lol. But if the hair looks natural and pretty, I don’t see why not.
Nice, with most I agree - but also I must mention that I was extremely disappointed with Parisiens behavior to tourist in general "(( Because if you are not perfect French speaker they are very often - rude - unfortunately even in restaurants and cafes...
But French people are surprised if in others countries people after visit Paris are on the same way to them....and no willing answer simple question in French ...but why?? same what people in Paris sent to others shout go to them back ...simple and elegant...
Paris is beautiful but in my opinion just be "chic" if the behavior is not ok or rude - is just something which sends all GLAMOUR or chic down like nothing else...
For people saying that one should wear whatever one feels like and that others should not judge one on what one wears.... well that’s against nature. We humans are programmed to watch, analyse and plan accordingly. If I see a woman in an itsy bitsy, bright coloured dress with her bits hanging out,, wearing heavy make up, accentuated by hair extensions, fake lashes, fake nails and loud accessories.... I will take her to be tacky at best and a streetwalker at worst.... and not just I, any normal decent person would too. Consequently, I will not accord her the same attention or even respect, the I would otherwise give to a decently dressed woman. Like it or not, argue however much you want... but that’s the truth... and no matter how much you yell and shout, deep down you know it too!
the mini skirt back in the day was worn all over Europe , here in the states gym clothes are worn out all over even to dinner. Plus the most horrendous is people wear their pajamas to the grocery store , to the pharmacy all over out to eat as well. I was so shocked when I first saw that . Do they wear their pajamas in public in France/
Marie Anne the first time I saw this I worked in in the pharmacy for 27 years ,I was flabbergasted the other employees were laughing at me because I put up such a fuss seeing that they said it is normal roll out of bed with out changing & do your errands & even having dinner in their attire. I am 67 that is something we NEVER would do The other appalling thing is young girls having their breast pierced with dangling earrings walking around with a see thru blouse. My Nanny if she were alive to see that she would have a spell another here in the states is very overweight women walking around with real short shorts,but also having a tube top with their extra fat hanging out like a spare tire around their stomachs with out any shame Also a lot of women here have many many tattoos on their bodies Do the women have tattoos ob their bodies where you live? I am happy my Mom taught me to dress respectively since I was a little girl she will be 90 next year & still dresses so nice . Have a lovely day !!

La otra chica es Monica Smiller y su culazo tragón, esta chica lleva camino de convertirse en patrimonio de FAKings, tal como estamos viendo ultimamente. Y como chicos tenemos a tres pichones locos por follar con alguna de nuestras chicas. Ellos han decidido que Mónica sea la ganadora, Mónica ha decidido que Filipe sea el afortunado y quien romperá de nuevo su culo en una escena donde nuestra chica nos demostrara que no tiene limites para nada.

Que pasa chicos de FAKings, mi novia se llama Sugar Bitch y pronto al ver el vídeo adivinareis por que. El caso es que a mi preciosa chica le encantan las pollas , cuantas mas mejor, y yo que presumo de ser un cornudo consentido , siempre me vuelvo loco y me pierdo por complacerla . No nos engañemos, creo que me pone mas a mi el ver como la follan que a ella disfrutar con rabos ajenos. Sea como sea, nuestros escarceos por locales liberales y sitios donde acostumbran a ir parejas a follar y chicos a pajearse mientras las ven, es habitual . Para grabar este vídeo nos hemos ido al rio en una zona en Sevilla donde acostumbra a pasar lo que os he comentado. Las parejas hacen dogging, las chicas a solas hacen cruising y los cornudos como yo, llamamos a todos los que están mirando para invitar a follar con nuestra zorrilla . Hemos tenido bastante suerte ya que hasta tres chicos han terminado follando con ella y los tres se han corrido en su cuerpo, eso a ella le encanta, a la muy zorra le gusta que su cuerpo huela a semen . Yo ya os lo he dicho, como loco por complacerla. A ver si os gusta el vídeo y lo publicáis, prometemos enviar mas.
