Hello Friends! Thank you for reading my blog.
Following up the Personal Style category I’d like to tell you about the Provence Style and to show how I see it.
At first let’s find out what the word “Provence” means. Provence is a French word for “province” and means a region in the south-east of France. Provence style is a variant of country style. The French country style has become popular in the interior design, art and clothing. This is quite clear why – a warm, southern, sunny Provence is highly inspiring.
If you like comfort , lavender tenderness, soft femininity and exquisite beauty then you are going to love this style.
I don’t like to bind myself and my clients to any one particular style. Life is so multifaceted and interesting and it is boring being dressed all the time in the same manner. A woman should look different and try various styles on. How do you understand then if this is yours or not? Plus, there are a lot of situations, when you need to look differently. Moreover, you don’t have to follow any style in its pure form, you can adapt it to yourself.
The Provence style will perfectly fit into your summer life. Imagine yourself meeting guests at a dacha or in a country house. There is a table on veranda overlooking the lawn, fresh flowers and berries on the table and barbecue in the evening. The Provence style is quite appropriate for such situation.
I choose a floor-length dress that emphasizes the waist. Of the shoulder outfits are not only on trend, but look very feminine.
This is a dress made of natural fabric and of natural color. It creates smooth lines and countours and has a small floral print. Light curls serve as a finishing touch to this feminine look.
Soft natural shades as if slightly faded in the sun are prevalent in the Provence style. Colors are soothing, dusty, naturally occurring in the summer. Among the color options are gray, milky, lavender, beige-to-brown shades, pastel green, sky blue and similar.
I gave you an example of how to wear the Provence style in real life. There can be many options of course. Provence style is not limited to floor-length dresses; it also includes soft feminine skirts, sarafans, cozy knitted things, subtle lace and layers.
Would you try the Provence look on? What situation is the most appropriate for this style?
