This little thing has so much fashion – it’s worth a blog……
But here are some incredibly subtle and very valid style points in this little ditty!
Mix and match your separates – and buying separates gives you way more than a single garment.
One dark top, one light top, one red skirt and one white skirt, and so far we have 4 outfits with 4 pieces. This is cut-and-dry what the capsule wardrobe is all about. Now this is from Air France. I suspect they want to promote trendiness to the finest degree (as all things French are completely tasteful – except sometimes their politics!!!)
Dark color always makes your waist look smaller. Even though they’re talking about a seat belt – in the typical French tasty way, they have this on the waist. That’s not by accident. Dark colors always recede and make that area look smaller.
The bateau or boat neckline is always a classic. This is also a classically French design for the top known as Breton shirt or French Naval shirt. It’s based on the French naval shirt, so designed so the sailor could be seen easily in the water. Yikes, guess a lot went overboard, but at least they wanted to get them back!
The shoulder is a classical location for ornamentation based on military ornamentation. Notice how the black Breton shirts have the military buttons on both sides, while the white only has one side, so either way is good.
Ballet flats are never out of fashion, and although it’s excellent to have a black pair, having another color isn’t bad either.
And finally –
Our guide through this lovely video has on a fabulous uniform, but did you notice how high the waist is on the dress? I thought you might have. It’s an excellent location!
So there you have it. You’ll never look at this video the same again!!!!
