We're not totally on-board with all the big trends that crop up on runways and fashion influencers' Instagram accounts, but this summer, we are living for the whimsical puffy sleeves, strappy sandals, tie-dye, and beaded jewelry we're seeing. That said, we have noticed that while the American fashion girls we follow online for inspiration seem to be fully embracing all sorts of trends this summer—from chic and elegant to vibrant and whacky—the French women we scroll past are leaving out a few specific ones.
According to the patterns we've noticed in American vs. French style for summer 2019, here are seven major style and beauty trends French women are leaving out of their wardrobes this year—and seven they're wearing instead.
1. Not French: Tourist Hats
French girls prefer to remain inconspicuous, and the whole "Look at me, I'm a tourist!" hat trend is so… not that.
In terms of beauty trends, Beyoncé's makeup artist told us earlier this week that baby pink lips (as well as corals and sheer peaches) are happening this summer. But French girls really don't tend to mix up their lip colors and definitely not for cool-toned pastel pink.
