It’s Thursday night in Melbourne and I’ve been using my time productively…to day-dream about Paris, France and all things French.
To be more accurate, I’ve probably been remembering more than day-dreaming. I’ve been recalling the flavours, the scents, the light and most of all, the colours of France.
And in thinking about colour it occurred to me that, this week, my suggestion to Frenchify Your Friday has to be to wear black.
Black forms the foundation of every French wardrobe – whether you’re male or female.
Yes, you do see some colour here and there. Maybe in a scarf or perhaps in a handbag – although that colour is likely to be another neutral…cream, beige, tan, grey or navy.
But mostly you see a lot of French people dressed in black.
And in the French context, black is never boring.
To my mind it always looks classy, elegant and appropriate.
So why not tap into some of that class, elegance and appropriateness and Frenchify Your Friday by dressing in black this Friday?
Until next time – au revoir.

I think the Parisians throw off their black when they get to Provence! Saying that, black forms a lot of my Aussie wardrobe – I’m sure there is a colour called ‘Melbourne Black’ – just as there is ‘Parisian Black’!
I’m tipping you are right about Parisians in Provence Jan – especially in summer! You are also right about black being worn everywhere in Melbourne – it’s an easy Frenchify Your Friday for Melbourne based Francophiles this week!
