The Colour Combo French It Girls Always Wear

There are certain styles we automatically ascribe to the French: Breton stripes, culottes, le smoking… But with a little digging on the Instagram accounts of your favourite Parisian style stars, it becomes obvious that the French also have a thing for red and blue. Whatever the reason (the colours do fly on the French flag), this classic combination is a favourite across the board. Chic French women find plenty of ways to make a look their own, but in the end, they always fall back on the tried-and-true pairing.
