A key element in the closet of French women is the Sailor shirt

Do you like striped tops? I have a knack for the French style sailor striped tops. Well, the classic French style striped top is blue and white, but I like this red and white version as a twist on this posh chic French girl look.

I wanted to go for a grown-up French gamine style vibe and added a suede pencil skirt in red, flat pumps and a trench coat. The French girls go for a worn-in pair of jeans, but I wanted the look to be appropriate for the office. The pencil skirt does the trick.

Borrowed from the men pieces add to the look

I added a long pendent necklace as this type of necklace works well with the boat neck of the top. Pearl studs keep the look classic. To stay with the gamine idea I added my uni-sex wooden watch.

Do you style an outfit around one piece like I did in today’s outfit with the striped top? What piece do you usually start with when creating an outfit? Let me know by email, I am curious.
