We talk a lot about British style, and we talk a lot about French style, but it recently occurred to me that we very rarely compare the two side by side. Being something of a Francophile, but also someone who is very proud to be British, I decided I’d rectify this by creating the exact sort of content that would interest me. If you’ve found yourself here, that likely means it’s of interest to you, too; something for which I’m very grateful.
Recently, I embarked on a bit of a fashion history lesson, chronicling the typically British items French women have adopted as their own. Today, however, I wanted to look at our respective aesthetics from another angle. Surely there must be some British trends that French women just don’t get? So I set out to discover what these are.
