Frenchify Your Friday – Number 18

Wear your ballet flats and bring a little French style to your day

It probably goes without saying that French women are known for their seemingly effortless, somewhat understated style.

Over the years, I’ve noticed that there are a few key elements to this style – skinny jeans, a quality t-shirt, a great jacket, a scarf (bien sûr) and flat shoes. Predominantly ballet flats.

Yes, ballet flats – in every colour imaginable – are seen on the feet of the stylish all over France.

While brands like Repetto are quintessentially French, the good news is that you can pick up stylish, comfortable ballet flats wherever you are in the world. And at every price point!

So to Frenchify Your Friday this week, take a leaf out of the French woman’s style guide and wear your ballet flats. Not only will you bring a little French inspiration into your day while looking fabulous, but your feet will be thanking you too.

Until next time – au revoir.
