Get The Look – French Chic

Ever wondered how French women always look so effortlessly chic – what is that “je ne sais quoi?”

It’s a beautifully cut pair of jeans and a comfortable classy top as a base and then we add to it – a timeless jacket, a scarf that flatters…….Comfortable, casual, everyday chic!

The secret is to think of dressing in years, not seasons.

They don’t slavishly follow fashion or buy cheap, throwaway clothes. Instead, they give a nod to the trends but invest in timeless pieces which flatter their own individual silhouette and complement their existing wardrobe!   This effortless, ‘haven’t tried too hard” look actually takes quite a bit of work, but this is where Captain Tortue clothing comes in – they have done it all for you, with several Capsule Collections which mix and match beautifully, add in a couple of fully trained stylists to help you choose what flatters YOU and voila we have Shopping made Simple.  So why not give it a try?

Say goodbye to High Street hassles, parking palavers, changing room traumas and disappointing online shopping results.  Book a free 1-1 Style & Shop appointment at our Studio for personalised service with our French classic chic clothing range with a quirky twist in sizes 6-24.  All in all – an accessible, middle market alternative to the super cheap and the vastly overpriced.  Prices from £25-£110.

The magic of French Chic brought to our Pop Up Boutique.
