Extremely practical and super unfussy, French chic is something to be admired. That's why we shared an entire guide on "How to Dress Like a Frenchwoman" [The Guide] in our August issue. Reader of the Week Brown got the memo and was inspired to nab a few key, but effortless pieces to her wardrobe to achieve that perfect je ne sais quoi. "I wore a pair of classic ballet flats and a simple striped dress with other basic pieces to achieve my French-inspired look," says Brown. "And because these pieces are timeless, I know I'll be pairing them with many ensembles." Tres magnifique!
