1.      Always remember perfume

Choosing a great fragrance and sticking with it every day is one of the greatest secrets to French style. French women feel practically naked without it. Choose your scent wisely and avoid anything that is too cheap because it simply won’t last as long. Tips for keeping the fragrance on you longer include making sure it’s also on your clothing, such as a scarf.

One of the paradoxes of French beauty is how women stay fabulously slim whilst enjoying the delicacies of French cuisine, which include pain au chocolate, cheese, white bread and wine. It’s all down to moderation. Cut out snacking, eat less over a longer period, and take time to eat.

3.      Red wine

6.      Loving red lipstick

Red lipstick is about as quintessentially French as it gets, and yes, you can wear it to an informal gathering with a messy bun. Keep your clothes simple and chic and your eyes low-key, then add red lipstick and the aforementioned perfume to complete your French look.
