This post is a toast to one of the ‘all-time’ fashion favourite, the French. Now when I say French, I do not necessarily mean only the people but anything and everything French. Two attributes characteristic of French that I am wearing are—nautical stripes and french cuff.
The nautical stripes have a great deal of history behind them, starting from the French sailors of the 19th century to being discovered by Coco Chanel and subsequently to the rockstars of the 60s. I shall not delve into much into it.
There is no exact information about this, and it might very well be a misnomer, but pants when cuffed inwards at the bottom are sometimes reffered to as ‘French cuffed’. Most exponents will ask you never to go for this sort of thing if you are vertically challenged, especially pertaining to slim-fit jeans. I say, go for it, but back it up with a pair kick-ass heels.
