Men’s priority isn’t their appearance. Lately, The Parisian flair has been experiencing a change in Men’s behavior. It’s well-known that French men pay attention to their look, what they buy, how to wear it and spend as much time getting ready than their female counterparts. Nevertheless, they look elegant, casually well dressed or stylish and it stays natural and effortless. They appropriate old forgotten dress codes and take some risks to become stylish guys and get that sartorial elegance. They are not afraid of being judged.
How do they learn? They buy trendy magazines, check out cool blogs and talk fashion with their female friends or girlfriends. Why not? When you ask an American man how he feels about fashion, usually the answer is that he doesn’t really care. It’s changing Messieurs! Your awareness to trends and what looks good has evolved. You have an opinion and are actually buying brands and clothes you enjoy, that fit you and that you feel good in.
Who are they really? French men are not as sophisticated as their Italian neighbors or as chic as the Brits, but they have this “je ne sais quoi” that the entire fashion world is still trying to define. They know how to build an entire “look”, when to buy an expensive piece, and why that particular one. They have flair when it comes to getting their basics and what clothes are suitable for their personality. Their elegance doesn’t only come with their style or what they are wearing. It’s a whole. Parisian flair is giving you tips on how to become more of a French lover. Courtesy was the number one value of old France. You can feel the legacy when it comes to the way French men behave or are supposed to behave. Let’s face it all French men are not courteous and perfect gentlemen. For some reason, Parisian Flair has notice that a lot of American women and foreign women were attracted like magnets to the French man stereotype. Why is that? As Parisian insiders we can tell you that it’s because French men don’t like perfection. It’s all about paradoxes. Some men are charming but also womanizers when others are generous but casual and so on. The key to the secret door to their world is simple: French people live with their flaws, they don’t try to change and they laugh about it!
