Looking back at 2020, from the buttoned down gowns, to the silk scarf and beret trend, and the shedding of accessories, there is an undeniable influence of French fashion in trends we saw. However, this is not the first time fashion has slipped up notes to mirror French fashion. In the early 1900’s brands like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Dior and the list could go on were instrumental in shaping fashion as reflected in film and runways. The styles and couture displayed on the runway were reinvented as they trickled to mainstream fashion and not much has changed since then.

I am posting this OOTD as an Ode to my style evolution on this blog as I didn’t do much of style post this year. And seeing as I’m about to embrace a new way of life in the coming year, I felt this would be a great post. Read more about the evolution of French fashion which I fond insightful.
