Kat in Paris - Report 3

Our Chic & Slim Special Correspondent Kat has recently visited Paris. Here is her third report:

This is about as bare as they get. It was a hot day, but I saw no crop tops or short-shorts on anyone (bar teenage girls) on the streets of Paris.

The sole exception to the apparent “no bare midriffs” rule was the lovely girl pictured looking at her phone at Cafe Flore. Unfortunately you can’t see it, but the white top she’s wearing is actually a fifties-style bikini top - with flowing long sleeves. Her lightly tanned and very toned midriff is bare! With this she’s wearing straight black pants and black loafers on bare feet — a slightly masculine contrast to the ultra feminine top and delicate jewellery. Notice the neutral makeup — no red lip/black eyeliner in sight. She looked beautiful.
