Paris fashion style

Fashion is all about women. Paris women love fashion but are not a slave to short-lived fads. It is all about a timeless, well-cut, classic look. They are obsessed over cut. No dowdy jackets, too tight pants, or ill-fitting dresses allowed. They dress for their body type and ensure clothes hug in all the right areas. They have mastered slim-fitting clothing that creates and accentuates curves and tailor the slightest details for perfect measure.

They love to be feminine without being overly sexy or entertaining excessive extras. They focus on the finer details and as a result the whole appears seamless and effortlessly sophisticated. They own less but better quality clothing. Their attention is not based on price but on value. They don't dress down, own hoodies, or go to the bakery in yoga pants. They dress for themselves, aim to feel good and do a great job looking fresh and flawless. All in all, women spend a lot of time and money for looking good.

French hat fashion in Paris

Until the Second World War, no self-respecting man or woman in Paris left the house without a hat. Hats were an essential attribute of elegance imposing one person's style and a key fashion item. Famous milliners could turn into full-blown fashion designers such as Chanel and Lanvin. In the 1960s, hats completely fell out of fashion as part of the radical clothing revolution across the western world.

Fortunately, hats are coming back to the City of Light.

Chloe Thieblin, who founded Mademoiselle Chapeaux in 2011, is part of this revival. She began her own production in downtown a few years ago and is now doing brisk business. She first rented hats for great occasion such a weddings and parties. Now, she is selling hats that are deliciously French. The hats of Mademoiselle Chapeaux are cute and affordable French fashion to bring back home.
