A landmark event of the French Revolution, Bastille Day commemorates the 1789 storming of the Bastille prison. And we're going to use it as an excuse to prattle on about French fashion. So, in honor of Bastille Day, we present five high-style picks from five of our favorite French design houses.
A scarf is an invaluable little accessory, because it can be styled countless ways. And the French always seem to know just how to wear them. We love this number in the bright red or the dashing blue, both of which are perfect for showing your French allegiance.
The perfect bag for when you don't quite know what to expect, this black patent beauty can keep everything you might need tucked safely inside.
If you're thinking of celebrating Bastille Day a little more authentically, pick up Louis Vuitton's Paris City Guide and take on the town itself.
When the going gets tough, the tough know better than to wear heels. These classic houndstooth flats are sure to be chic and comfortable, so you can feel free to stage a little revolution of your own.
Blue, white and red rosettes worn by the middle-class became a symbol of revolution in France. This white rosette brooch is the perfect thing to pay subtle homage to this emblem of the French Revolution.
