French people of all ages seem to be more dedicated followers of fashion trends. I was surprised to see my neighbour wearing handkerchief hem skirts then another year tulip skirts when they were in fashion and she’s in her 80’s. I was quite shocked to see one of my students wearing woolly tights under shorts, as she was a professional woman in her 40’s. When neon colours were in fashion, bright greens, yellows and shocking pinks were everywhere, then a year later, no one was wearing them. A French friend, when asked for her thoughts on the differences between the British and the French, observed that British people have the confidence to wear what they like.
