If you've ever been to France, chances are you made an observation that the French dress quite differently than Americans do. It's not what they're wearing per se -- it seems like sneakers French mature getting dressed pink coats are popular everywhere these days -- but how they're wearing the trends.
The French might say it all comes down to a certain indefinable je ne sais quoi. But stare long and hard enough at photos of French women compared to their U.
French women follow Chanel's rule: French women go sleek with clean lines and streamlined silhouettes. Americans are cool with cuffed shorts and rumpled denim.
