"So I agree – it is more about attitude. If I think about my wardrobe – I always dress the same way – and if you think about Charlotte Gainsbourg or Jane Birkin, they also have a very simple straightforward uniform. It’s so much more about the details – about the way you wear your clothes, rather than what you’re actually wearing. I think French women tend to keep it simple. I'd say try the less-is-more approach, which is not always easy to get right.”

“To not try to be too sophisticated. Even if I am going to an event or a wedding, I try to just look effortless. The more effortless you look, the more chic you look.”

What five things do all French women have in their wardrobe during the winter season?

“A perfect sweater, a manly coat or jacket – it’s very important to mix masculine and feminine – a jumper dress (they're so great because they are warm and cosy, but still feminine), a perfect jean and a great pair of boots.”

“I love winter clothes. For me, it is all about choosing great materials and getting the right cut for your body – and then styling it right. For example, I love an oversized manly jacket, but I'll team it with some girly heels.”

How do you choose a winter coat?

“I absolutely always buy in a bigger size. This is true for coats and also sweaters – I always take a bigger size because I think it looks far more chic if it’s loose fitted, rather than tight.”

What would you wear for?

1. A winter wedding?

“A velvet jumpsuit.”

2. For the office?

“A matching wool trouser suit. At the moment, I love tailoring when the top and the bottom are the same print.”

3. The Christmas party?

“A little black dress or maybe a wrap top in silk with jeans and heels.”
