Standout prints

Bold and coloured prints are everywhere — whether it be geometric, floral, check, or polka dots. It's an easy assumption to think prints of this nature will date, but the trick is learning how to differently style them season after season, year after year. Look to other current trends for a touch of pattern play and double-up on the femininity and boldness.

Handle bags

Whether it be large or small, bags that are just held daintily by the hand were seen outside every show. There's no better way to make your bag part of your outfit by holding it right next to you. For your existing shoulder bags with long straps, bunch up the strap in your hand.

oversized belts

We already know that French girls love a great belt. But an easy way for an existing outfit to climb the ranks from a five to a ten is to add an oversized piece. Make sure to keep your outfit balanced, and don't be afraid to show off a little décolletage and to let your tresses out.

Sheer dresses

We've seen this trend pop up season after season, and we're still loving it just as much. Nothing says romance like showing off a little skin in a sheer number. Go easy on the accessories as the nearly-nude statement will do all the talking.
