This guide contains a collection of women’s warm weather apparel that embodies the essence of the French woman: that coy, mysterious, flirty, charm that can be so beguiling. “French-chic” as such is a term that I use loosely to define that certain something, that je ne sais quoi that French women have in everything they do, including the fashion statements they make. If you admire the French woman’s style and consider yourself to be a bit of a Francophile then this is the guide for you.
Note: Any prices mentioned should be taken as a guide only as they are not updated, as always do your own research and due dilligence!
