5 Items Every French Woman Over 40 Owns

Want to know one thing stylish French women over 40 have in common? Seriously fine-tuned wardrobes that can teach all of us some lessons about how to curate closets brimming with chic pieces. In fact, many of them have the same go-to items that are the building blocks of a cool Parisian wardrobe, or non-Parisian wardrobe for that matter.

I started to notice these similarities when looking through some photos. From glossy black jackets to perfectly tailored tweed jackets, there are plenty of French wardrobe staples that are always consistent.  Go on to see the five pieces every stylish French woman over 40 owns, and then shop the pieces for yourself if you find their outfits as inspiring as I do.

33 Pieces I Love From & Other Stories, H&M and COS

Brighter mornings! Longer days! Rising temperatures! Spring is officially here, and we’re pretty excited about it. Finally, it feels like winter is melting away (aside, apparently, from the odd bit of sleet), and things are looking up. And it seems the high-street also shares our excitement. Over the last few days, we’ve seen the new-in offerings at our favourite online shopping destinations take a springlike turn. 

Now, while we pride ourselves on not favouring one brand over another, we think it’s fair to say that some stores have nailed spring 2021’s aesthetic, with many of our favourite items coming from three places in particular: H&M, COS and & Other Stories.

With a host of chic treats boasting the most beautiful colour palette imaginable, we’ve whittled down the top 11 items below for your shopping pleasure. Keep scrolling, and make sure you’re fully prepped for spring.

My Favourite Affordable Skincare Brand Just Landed at Boots, and I’m So Excited

While I’ve never thought of myself as a particularly extravagant person, I recently totted up my regular skincare routine and found that it totalled an eye-watering £669. Yikes. With that in mind, I’ve been busy testing more affordable skincare options than ever in my quest to find efficacious products that don’t compromise on results. Currently, I am somewhat obsessed with Versed, our sister skincare line in which every single product clocks in at £20 and under. 

And the affordable price tag doesn’t mean that you’re compromising on quality. Every product is made from clean, simple ingredients that have been sustainably sourced and tirelessly tested for maximum results. From cleansers and serums to moisturisers and eye creams, it’s a full range of hardworking skincare that I’m recommending to everyone. Oh, and it’s just landed at my favourite place to shop for affordable beauty: Boots.

The 2021 Co-Ord Trend That I’m 100% Here For

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of a co-ord, or any outfit that takes less than a minute to style, for that matter. When time is of the essence or, you know, you just don’t have the brain capacity to make any decisions (same), a matchy-matchy pairing is a godsend. If you find yourself nodding in agreement, it’s my happy duty to tell you that one of this summer’s key trends falls neatly into the low-maintenance co-ord category.

These Romantic Trends Are All I Want to Wear This Summer

Romance hasn’t exactly been the cosiest of bedfellows to the pandemic. Dates and special moments have been on hold, and the monotony of our daily lives hasn’t made for the best backdrop to grand gestures, darling fashion moments and Instagrammable opportunities. But the restrictions (both physical and sartorial) of the last year led to fashion lovers finding an outfit outlet for their most whimsical aesthetic dreams: Cottagecore took off in a big way during 2020, and the look has now developed to encompass almost everything under the category of romantic.

Fashion People Love Straight-Leg Jeans—Here’s How They Style Them

Yes, skinny jeans can totally be comfortable (especially when paired with other cozy pieces). That being said, we totally get if more relaxed denim cuts are your jam as well. If that is the case, what’s coming your way may be of interest. That’s right—we rounded up a range of chic denim outfits featuring looser jeans.

And yes, while each outfit below clearly has the looser denim silhouette in common, they also all share another similarity in that each is quite easy to put together. In fact, many can be created using items already in your closet.

With all that, keep scrolling to check out cool jean outfits to wear now or to reference down the road. And while we did mention that the looks in question are comprised of common fashion pieces many of us own, we also shopped out some cool items as well if you’re interested in adding something new to your wardrobe.

M-am mutat la Paris și acum port exclusiv aceste 4 articole Cu blugi

As 2021 is all about long-lasting pieces for our wardrobes, it makes sense to turn to the most timeless and quintessentially Parisian outfit that can be worn year-round: jeans.

These trousers are one of a Parisian’s wardrobe essentials and the item I’ve invested in most since I moved to Paris. The French don’t really do “dressing up,” and Parisians are always ones to choose comfort and practicality (sexy practicality, that is) over restricting or gaudy going-out outfits that are neither sexy nor effortless. It’s the key look for most French women I know, so here’s my roundup of a few of my favourite denim formulas I’ve come to rely upon…

Uitați de produsele de înfrumusețare Buzzy nesigure – Aceste „plictisitoare” Munceste mereu

O mică responsabilitate înainte de a începe: în ciuda faptului că meseria mea implică testarea a sute de produse de înfrumusețare în fiecare an pentru a descifra care sunt cu adevărat bune și care sunt un hainele noi ale împăratului, încă nu sunt imun la zgomotul care înconjoară un produs de înfrumusețare în tendințe. De fapt, una dintre cele mai mari bucurii ale meseriei mele este să testez cele mai discutate noi lansări de frumusețe – știți, cele care în prezent saturează fluxul dvs. Instagram – pentru a afla dacă funcționează efectiv. Cu toate acestea, deși există o mulțime de produse de înfrumusețare care merită, fără îndoială, hype ( TLC Sukari Babyfacial al lui Drunk Elephant , mă uit la tine), există o mulțime de cazuri când o nouă versiune se dovedește a fi o mulțime de ambalaje frumoase și nu multe altele.

Dacă întrebați un dermatolog ce produse de înfrumusețare buzzy ar trebui să le încorporați în rutina de îngrijire a pielii, acestea vor fi destul de unanime în răspunsul lor – uitați-le. În schimb, există o serie întreagă de produse de bază pe care experții în piele le recomandă în mod constant pentru o piele sănătoasă. Da, s-ar putea să pară puțin plictisitoare în comparație cu măștile de față strălucitoare și petele colorate sub ochi care domină feed-ul TikTok , dar credeți-mă. Aceste produse funcționează întotdeauna.

The Essential Sandal Trend Every Fashion Person Will Wear This Year

We may have only had, like, three days of a heatwave recently, but as soon as the sun came out all we could think about was shedding our boots and trainers for bare ankles. Anyone else? Sandal season is finally upon us and we couldn’t be happier about it. A great pair can be the perfect gateway into spring/summer dressing— even swapping them into your favourite jeans and jumper look now can make your existing wardrobe feel instantly refreshed. 

We don’t discriminate on sandal styles here (classic tan, lace-up, mules… we’ll take them all) but it is fast becoming clear that one trend is going to rule them all for 2021, and that’s chunky ones. From velcro dad sandals, to fisherman caged styles and flatform flip-flops, we still can’t get enough of them (this is the third year running they’ve been popular now, so at least we can be confident it’s not just a fleeting fad). 

Now for where to buy them. Of course, there’s the usual designer culprits, but for affordable options our absolute go-to on the high street has to be Dune London— and it appears we’re not the only ones. Influencers and editors all over our Instagram feed have been sporting the brand’s most popular styles already this year, and they’re only about to get more sought-after as the weather keeps warming up.

My Mum Looks 10 Years Younger Than She Is—This Is the Product She Swears By

When I was a child in the ’90s, I always saw my mum as being „old.” She wasn’t. In fact, being 38 when I was born, she was far from it. But in my mind, she was way older than the other mums at my school, and so, to my pre-pubescent self, she was neither cool nor youthful. Thirty years on, however, I now look at my mum—who is now approaching 70—and only see how radiant and bright she looks.

The most frustrating thing though is that whenever I’ve asked my mum about the products she likes or I give her products to try she’ll say, „You know me, Kesh. I only like oils.” And it’s true. She’s not a huge beauty lover like I am—I’m a true magpie when it comes to trying all the latest buzzy ingredients. In contrast, ever since I can remember my mum has hinged her beauty routine on a plethora of oils for her hair, skin and body care. Every day, she plucks oils from her shelf and incorporates them into her routine (which is enviably simple) and this is what she swears by for her beautiful skin.
