(Telegraph)   How do French women stay so chic and stylish? It's easy: they just avoid trends and ignore advice from celebrities and pushy shop assistants on what looks chic and stylish   (fashion.telegraph.co.uk) divider line 65

I mean, subby kind of has a point, rare as that usually is on fark. The hottest chicks I've known rocked ripped jeans and a nice tight band shirt and didn't give a fark what beyonce was wearing, so maybe my ideas on fashion are different than vapid people that care about the kardashians and whatnot.

Being secure within yourself and having your own sense of style are always sexy.

They also mess around with each other and do anal.   So yeah, they're going to be deemed stylish by at least half the planet.

From TFA it sounds like the answer is a combination of "do what you think makes you look good" and "do what everybody else is doing."

I had a short fling with a flight attendant for Air France a couple years back, and yes, her pits kinda stunk. At least they were shaved I guess...

They start by not wearing that shirt/jacket? Makes her look frumpy and appear much thicker, if not heavier.

I think it would be fun (if I was the editor of Vogue or a big celebrity or something) to try and start the most ridiculous fashion trend possible (I dunno what exactly) and see if they could get ordinary people to wear it.

I've been in a long term relationship with a French woman, spent time in France, etcetera.  My ex wasn't at all into clothes or shopping, hated it.  I don't think she ever bought new clothes the entire time we were together, yet she still looked well put together.  The nonsense about not shaving and not bathing is, of course, a stupid stereotype.

If you go to, say, Paris, you will see beautiful, well dressed women, but that goes for any major city in any country.  Everywhere else in France you will also see beautiful women dressed nicely, but not necessarily walking around smaller cities wearing high heels.

I have been to France a number of times, the last time being 3 years ago, and I have never noticed that French women are any more sexy/attractive than their counterparts in other countries. I think it is a bunch of hype based on a time long ago that no longer applies. They may not be as overweight, but that's not the same thing.

Look at the "In Pictures" section.  Audrey Tautou is in there.  Rawr.

And that's the Vogue Paris editor in chief shown in the article.  She gets a pass because she works for Vogue.
 
2014-06-24 11:43:33 PM  
The real answer is because French women are physically healthy.  Clothing looks more stylish on attractive women than on women with undiagnosable "glandular problems."

There is an inverse relationship between the number of attractive women in a room and the number of fatties in a room.  Even if every woman present "feels good about herself" equally.

So much this. I like being with women who wear what they think is comfortable. Not a heels fan here.

Hell, a nice fitting t-shiat, jeans, and sneakers is pretty damn sexy when you like the person wearing them.

You couldn't do it. it's simply not possible to come up with things dumber than what they really push as "fashion."

article says something about french women looking stylish and sexy, yet shows one in frumpy clothes, looking downright ... frumpy.  Who cares?

ex gf is latino and she looks divine in her daily jeans and t-shirt ... after 2 kids

/yes, I know latin women develop hips early, but hers are just right
//no pics, she still doesn't think she looks hot after all the work I did on her self-image
///she still thinks she's ugly, though she's a solid 8

I mean, I don't really care as an actual point. How French women derive their style is slightly below ironing my t-shirts in how much it affects my daily life. It's not exactly the best supporting point though.

If I asked you how the UN was effective at preventing and mitigating violence, you wouldn't start off with the Rwanda Genocide.

Wearing simple styles will never detract from a person's beauty.

The more out-there the style choices, the bigger the likelihood that the outfit will look a mess, which does tend to distract from a person's beauty. Hence the ubiquitous "What Was She Thinking?" columns.


My best friend veers between "smashing" and "fashion victim." The latter is not fun to watch.
