Dress Like A French For The Holiday Season

It’s almost the holiday season! And just looking around at festive outfits is always a fun thing to do. If you’ve always wondered how French women dress for the Holidays, here is your French guide to Holiday party dressing. French-girl holiday style is all about being chic and elegant.

The goal is to present a chic and polished version of yourself, incorporating fashion pieces by swapping your pair of jeans for silky black pants, or putting on a little black dress. Mixing classic staples and silhouettes that are finished with festive details and combining them with statement accessories, will elevate your festive outfit. For example, if you wear a classic black dress, make sure to elevate your look with a faux-fur coat or a feather embellished clutch. And make sure to choose elegant jewelry too, like a chunky choker chain necklace or sparkly earrings. Makeup is important too, but there are some makeup choices that dominate the most, such as a bold red lip or smokey eye. French women are not afraid to step their outfits up.

Make sure to follow these style tips to get you dressing more French this Holiday season.

Always choose classic and elegant shades like black, white, burgundy, or dark green. If you’re not sure how to match colors, a total black look is always the safest and the most chic option for the Holidays.

Subtlety is key. The French usually refrain from sequins or glitter. Instead, French women prefer to wear pieces made of velvet, satin, or silk. Just keep sequins, glitter, or feathers for accessories only.

Even for the Holidays, French women avoid wearing dresses too short, pants too tight, or tops that are too revealing.

If you’re planning to wear a dress, make sure to always wear semi-sheer tights. You can pair them with everything from boots to open-toe heels.

Finally, French girls are never overdressed. Avoid wearing bold shades, extravagant items, bright colors, or expensive pieces. Instead, combine classic pieces with statement items like a faux-fur coat, a wool hat, or a great pair of shoes.
