French Women Love Color!

French Women Secret #5:

French Women love color.  It's true.  

When you visit Paris, you will find a lot of basic black, but you'll also find lots of French women who play with colors and create ensembles made with signature color themes.  

Or you might find a woman wearing all black, with an unexpected pop of red or blue or green or yellow.  French women know the power of color to make a statement about who they are and who they want to be.


I met this fabulous femme d'un certain age on rue Buci last spring.  I love her bright yellow coat!  She told me it was her favorite color.  It made me think of sunshine on a cloudy day!


My signature color is blue, but I'm also a big fan of red and green. 
Do you have a color that says who you are?  I'd love to hear about it!

  1. People tell me that my signature color is red so I wear it a lot. However, I actually prefer shades of orange (e.g., peach, coral, deep), hot pink, and turquoise blue.

    1. Bonjour Lady Arabella--I adore red too! It's a powerful color. And yes, orange and peach are lovely. My French grandmother always loved coral and it looked lovely on her. And, like you, I adore hot pink. We have two hot pink chairs in our living room. People always comment on them. Thank you so much for writing and for following my blog. I appreciate it so much! And please let me know if there's a subject you'd like me to address. Merci beaucoup, Jamie
