It’s true that French girls and French fashion are heavily glamourized by the international press, wether it’s online or not. The thing is, what they describe as French style is more what provincials would describe as Parisian chic. That’s why, with the help of today’s outfit, I wanted to talk a little bit more about what we wear in Provence. Just because we exist too! (Just a quick disclaimer: I believe that style is cultural, no matter where you live. But it’s true that there are sartorial generalities in any countries.).

I don’t really know if my own personal style would fall into the French fashion category, especially the southern one. As I come from a multicultural background, I tend to take my inspiration from a lot of different things. Nonetheless, I’ve definitively adopted a few key pieces for my own wardrobe.

What I’ve realized, over the years, is how girls are into boho inspired fashion. Provence girls and women really love their tunics or maxi dresses with some hippie prints, especially when paired withΒ Tropeziennes sandals or ballet flats. Nope, we aren’t really into espadrilles! (Except me, I’ll admit that…). Still about the accessories, the scarves and French people are inseparable. Usually made of a thinner fabric for the summer, with some bright colours and funky prints. A scarf will be worn with an all white outfit or with neutral colours. A few other key pieces would be a panama hat, a lightweight cardigan (just in case), some Bensimon shoes, a straw bag, a wrap dress, an embroided white blouse, some printed palazzo pants and a LOT of boho jewellery to wear even at the beach.

To summarize, the difference between the Provence and the Parisian fashion aren’t huge but it’s still easy to tell where people are from. And if I had to tell what style I relate to the most, I would answer that I have no freacking idea!

    I like the simplicity of this look, its laid back but crisp and pulled together. I would probably catalogue it as “very European” – oh and don’t worry, I am clueless to when it comes to describing my very own style.

    That’s a very intersting topic! I live in a rural area too. One difference that I’ve noticed is that country women tend to dress more practical and less fashionable than city women. But I wish people here were as chic as you in Provence πŸ˜‰
    Love your look because you prove that a look can be simple and not overdressed and still be chic. Perfect for a country girl who loves fashion!
