French Minimalist Fall Wardrobe Staples (Trendy Wednesday #91)
I was unable to take a few outfits photos for today’s Trendy Wednesday post, because our kitchen is being remodeled! We have everything that goes in the kitchen located all over the house. Our appliances are in the living room, boxes are in the den area downstairs and things are in the living room too. It’s total disarray in our house! The initial kitchen demolition is set to be finished next week, so hopefully I can get back on track here on the blog.
In the meantime, I created an interesting post on French Minimalist Wardrobe Staples! So, read on to find out more…
Do you like French Style? I have a few clothes and shoes in my capsule wardrobe that is French style. You can find images of French women’s outfits on the internet, especially Pinterest. French Style consists of basic wardrobe essentials that never go out of style. They aren’t trendy, just classics.
To go a step further, is French Minimalist. That style’s colors are usually black, white and gray, with a few neutral tones like camel or ivory. All of these color tones coordinate well with one another. French women focus on a few well-chosen, good quality accessories to pull an outfit together and provide an interesting look. Often, they like to wear scarves with a beautiful print around their neck. They are noted for their scarves.
Back in the Spring I read, Lessons From Madame Chic: 20 Stylish Secrets I Learned While Living in Paris. I learned that French women rely on a limited number of clothes and shoes because most either have a small closet or even have no closet at all. The author describes the family she lived with in France while she was going to college. She described their lifestyle and their sense of fashion. If you haven’t read the book, I recommend reading it!

I love wearing black and white! Hope your kitchen remodel goes well. We did one three years ago. It’s hard to live through but so worth it! -Melissa
French style is the best. I’ve been working on simplifying my wardrobe since my daughter was born (I figured: one less thing to worry about) and these are some great inspirations. Thanks so much for sharing it with us on #shinebloghop!
