Once thing I've noticed about French girls is a very clean simple style. If they wear something that has a lot going on or an unusual silhouette, they tone down the rest of the outfit.

I mentioned the big sunglasses a few pages back and I guess what I should have said was big tacky sunglasses. In the states you will see girls wearing jeans with lots of detail with a big handbag with lots of stuff hanging off of it and then giant sunglasses that say DIOR in gigantic rhinestones on it. It's expensive, sure, but it's just too much if you are not, say, a well-known rap superstar.

^ Agreed! A lot of US fashion (especially amongst younger, fashion-victim girls) can be summed up as such: too much, too much, too much. It's all too overdone and they dress like they have something to prove- either how stylish or rich they are.
