Parlez-Vous Français? We Adore French Phrases on Everything
They don't call it a romance language for nothing. Just seeing French words written out calls to mind all the glamour and amour of The City of Light. While we can't all be so lucky as to jet off to Paris for Fashion Week (or just for fun), we can channel a bit of that Parisianjoie de vivre in our wardrobes.
French phrases have grown increasingly popular in both sportswear and jewelry thanks to trend-setting pieces like Dior's "oui" ring and Zoe Karssen's cult favorite knits and sweatshirts emblazoned with cheeky phrases like "Eau Yeah" and "Enfant Terrible."
Sister brands J. Crew and Madewell are each putting their own spin on la langue français with t-shirts and sweatshirts bearing expressions like "ça va?" which means, "How are you?" and "bien sûr" which means "of course" in French.
Kate Spade has a whole collection devoted to all things "Oh La La," which includes a chic little pair of earrings that say—what else—très chic. All these French sayings appeal to us because they add dash of femininity and je ne sais quoi to the casual knits and tees we live in on the weekends.
French lessons or not, it doesn't take much to become hooked on all these sweet, witty and conversation-starting expressions. Whether you know what "L'amour triomphe de tout" means or not, we guarentee you'll have a hard time saying non to these pieces.
