Trying to decode French fashion is not an easy task for an Indian who is not a style professional, but if one has to summarise it, it would be – keep it elegant and chic! The one secret to dress like a true blue French woman would be not to get too serious about. It is all about being minimalistic both in terms of the outfit as well as the accessories. Vaani Kapoor as a French-born Indian girl with a desi heart shares a few secrets to dress like a French girl in this promotional video for Befikre!

1. Fashion Tip 1: Wearing Sneakers to Work is Totally Cool!

Wearing sneakers to work is totally acceptable in France, says Shyra! A pair of sneakers with formal attire is becoming every working woman’s favourite combination. Apart from being super comfortable, this mismatch style makes one look totally chic.

2. Fashion Tip 2: Wearing a Scarf in Every Possible Way, Stylishly

What’s the right way to wear a scarf in Paris? Every way is right, claims Shyra. Vaani Kapoor shows three ways to wear a scarf – first, as a belt, which the beautiful star teamed with a shirt dress. Next, she adorned the scarf as a headband and oh boy! Did she look cool? The third way is the classic vintage manner; wearing it around the neck – what else?

3. Fashion Tip 3: There’s Nothing More French Than a Trench!

One couldn’t get more French than wearing the right trench coat. We are falling in love with the black and blue coats Vaani Kapoor is wearing in this Befikre video. A classic trench coat is required if visiting the country in winter. A trench worn over a simple dress or jeans and shirt makes for an eye-catching ensemble.

4. Fashion Tip 4: Give a Personal Touch with the Right Accessories!

Like we said, Parisians are known for being minimalist and classy. Be it their street style or attire for corporate affairs and glitzy events, French women do not believe in going overboard with fashion – nothing hideous or too flashy. They exhibit a simple taste but you can always give the French dressing style your individual touch. Vaani Kapoor shows how you can add quirkiness with the right accessories. Here she shows a bracelet, a ring and a choker as a perfect way to style up.

5. Fashion Tip 5: The French Love Black (We All Do)
