Freidrich Engels’ quote could just as easily be applied to French women’s fashions; specifically womens dresses.
As any fashionista knows, the French have that certain je ne sais quoi that makes even the simplest styles look elegant, sophisticated, and fueled with passion – from a striped boat neck top, black leggings, and ballerina flats; to a long-sleeved frock sporting a drop waist and coupled with knee-high boots. French women live, sleep, eat, and breathe glamour; qualities that are readily available to the un-French via style from La Redoute, a French fashion megastore that serves up Parisian glamour in the form of haute high-fashion looks at affordable price points.
Channel your inner Audrey Tautou during chilly winters with the Asymmetrical Crepe Dress with Elasticated Waist. Envision visiting the colorful flowers located in front of Paris’ St. Eustache Cathedral while wearing the Coloured Straight Cut Shirt Dress with Drawstring Waist. Dream of spending the day window shopping in the Louvre-Tuileries and Faubourg Saint-Honoré district while donning the Long Flounced Tie-Dye Dress in Crinkle Cotton Voile. Style yourself in the Long-Sleeved Plain Voile Dress while daydreaming of fall afternoons spent people watching at outdoor cafes. The Parisian possibilities are endless, mais oui?
Which La Redoute lovely makes you say ooh la la?
Thanks to La Redoute for the pictures.
