Ask a French person’s opinion on the British sense of style and the usual response I get is that we dress ‘n’importe comment’. British women make a clear distinction between what they wear in the daytime vs. what they wear in the evening. But in Paris, everything is so much more understated, more relaxed. In a city of cafe pavements people just tend to dress for all eventualities. They worship the day-to-night look, the work-to-play look, something completely transferable, comfortable, urban.
