Styles for women over 50

1.Fitted Blazer:

A blazer is a key part of a French woman’s wardrobe and should be a key part of yours too!

This is a staple that you can find in every over 50 French woman’s wardrobe. The best part about having a fitted blazer is that you can pair it with anything from a basic T-shirt to a camisole or a straight Jean.

A blazer transforms your outfit immediately and gives it a chic, sophisticated look. A blazer in a neutral color such as black, gray, or navy, is best paired with jeans for that put-together look. Whether you choose to wear boots or heels, you can’t go wrong with this outfit combo!

3. High Waisted Jeans:

This is a classic piece available in every over 50 French woman’s wardrobe. It is a perfect definer that gives your waist definition and makes your legs look longer. Considering colors, a dark high waisted jean is more polished while light denim gives a more casual vibe.

Every woman should have a classic leather handbag in their closet. This is a great way to accessorize any outfit, especially a black one so that you can pair it with any outfit! Depending on your budget, you can opt for any size you want.

5. Statement watch:

You should invest in a timeless wristwatch if you don’t have one already. When you’re in doubt about how to accessorize, just wear your wristwatch; it’s the perfect accessory for any outfit.

6. Minimalist Jewelry:

Whatever you do, avoid wearing huge statement necklaces and earrings as they make you look cheap and unsophisticated. Wear minimalist jewelry instead, or like I said previously, just wear a wristwatch!

I love absolutely everything

"Often, when I go out with the intention of buying new clothes, I end up wandering around for hours and not finding anything I really love. Because my time in Paris was limited, I wanted to make the best use of what little opportunity I had for shopping. Enter Linda, who-in just 3 hours-helped me select a range of gorgeous new clothes and accessories, I love absolutely everything I bought. My time with her was an absolute joy: she is very relaxed and easy to chat with, and she really listens to your opinions and steers you towards the things you will like. If only all shopping was this easy!"

"Linda was great helping me set up a personal shopping experience for my wife. She did a great job finding the perfect items according to her laste and style. We were able to get special unique clothes shoes we normally would not be able to find on our own. Highly recommended!"


I'll definitely be back for more!

"This was my first personal shopping experience on a trip to Paris so I wasn't sure what to expect, but was soon pul al case by the warm and friendly Linda... After wearing one of my new outfits back in London. several people have commented that I had a 'French chic look going on! It was the look I'd asked Linda for, so it seems to be working! Highly recommended - and I'll definitely be back for more!"


Great shopping experience!

"We had such a productive two hours with Linda! My daughter is very petite for her age (14 years old, almost 5'2" and 90 lbs). It is hardfor her to find clothes in styles popular in her age group and I was worried that our Paris shopping would be frustrating. I am so gladwe booked Linda! We sent her some samples of styles my daughter liked as well as the types of items we were interested inpurchasing. Linda mapped out stores and actual items in advance. And she was good at identifying potential options on the fly too. Intwo hours we got a dress, two pairs of jeans, some slides and two tops that my daughter loves! In every store Linda would quickly askthe salespeople for the smallest sizes and then my daughter would quickly make a call on what she wanted to try. Very efficient!Linda comes from a family in the fashion business and earlier in the day had helped a bride from the U.S. select her couture weddinggown. She is versatile for sure!Thank you Linda for this great highlight of our trip to Paris!"


Amazing Personal Shopping Experience in Paris

"My 13 year old daughter and I had a wonderful morning with Linda. We walked around the Marais area and Linda introduced us tomany shops and boutiques. Linda quickly understood what my daughter style is and what she prefers and offered her different andunique items at every store.My daughter is typically not an easy shopper :) but Linda was able to find her multiple beautiful items that she loved and wepurchased (all within the budget we pre-defined before starting). We even got one item for me (although this was not our focus thistime ...). Linda also helped us to quickly receive the tax refund forms at the different stores we visited.Overall it was an amazing experience which my daughter really enjoyed and marked as one of the highlights of our Paris visit."

"Linda took my daughter and I and another friend and her daughter shopping and it was just perfect. She chose ideal spots for theteenagers and great spots for myself and my friend (we are in our early 50s). She's kind, patient, and thoughtful and really tries tomake sure everyone finds what they need/ I also loved that she wasn't pushy with us buying things. She made me feel verycomfortable to say you know this is not right for me. I love the shoes I got on our trip and the jeans and my daughter had the besttime. This is a really special experience. My only suggestion would be that if you are shopping for teens and grownups to try to addmore time because 2 hours was not enough for us! It's a great experience -- hope you enjoy it too!"
