Ooh La La! Those French Women Certainly Know How To Wear a Scarf!
One nation known around the world for its sense of fashion – its sophistication and chic style, is France. Few would disagree with the statement that French women have forgotten more about fashion than most women know. It is not surprising that women around the world are always seeking the secret of that completely distinctive look.
Some claim French flair is genetic. You are born with it or not. Others prefer to believe the look is the result of paying close attention to all the elements of fashion – something young women are taught at an early age. Whatever is the truth, a Frenchwoman, without seeming effort, always makes any foreigner feel sadly underdressed.
If you have any doubt about Parisian chic, stroll along any Paris boulevard. Do you see any locals sporting sweatpants or wearing the omnipresent sneaker? Of course not? The women confidently walk pass each other wearing anything but – high-heeled black pumps finalize a remarkable fitted dress, skirt or suit ensemble. Black has always been the trademark color. Although other neutral colors may appear, these women do not appear as drab or colorless.
Accessories set off the complete look. While French women may not opt for the glittery and either brassy or fussy patterns, the ones they do choose add a dash of color. They team their modest and elegantly customized outfits with but a single accessory. This one item is responsible for injecting a brush of color while providing a personal and distinctive touch. For this role, silk scarves are a favorite.
The use of the scarf is obvious to anyone making a pilgrimage to France. It seems everywhere you look women are adorning themselves with this marvelous accessory. Scarves appear in a multitude of places in the hair and around the body, knotted in a wide variety of ways. While other materials are in usage, silk features widely. Frenchwomen, after all, understand what quality is and use it to their advantage. Silk is delicate in appearance. It flows softly. Its fine texture ensures a proper drape. Silk, like the style of Frenchwomen, is natural.
There is another advantage to silk scarves. Since no woman wants to appear with an identical scarf as another woman, silk provides the perfect solution. Forget the repetitive patterns of designer scarves. Too many women wear them. French women opt for the singularity of hand-painted, hand-dyed silk scarves. These are truly unique works of arts created in a myriad of different patterns and designs. No two are alike allowing every woman their own scarf and, therefore, the ability to make their own fashion statement. A single silk scarf can help them capture that allure that “je ne sais quoi” – the embodiment of their style.
