Overview

Forever Chic: Frenchwomen's Secrets for Timeless Beauty, Style, and Substance by Tish Jett

For any woman who last saw forty on her speedometer comes a sparkling new primer for aging—the French way—with grace and style. Frenchwomen of a certain age (over forty) are captivating and complex. They appear younger than their years and remain stylish throughout their lives. They look at birthdays as a celebration of a life well-lived and perhaps a good reason to go shopping before they dress to perfection for a celebration of another anniversaire. American-born journalist and blogger Tish Jett has lived among the French for years and has studied them and stalked them to learn their secrets. Exploring how their wardrobe, beauty, diet, and hair rituals evolve with time and how some aspects of their signature styles never change, Jett shows how Frenchwomen know their strengths, hide their weaknesses, and never talk about their fears, failures, or flaws. After all, in France, beauty, style, and charm have no expiration dates!

I'm a sucker for these "French chic" books (Lessons from Madame Chic, Entre Nous, etc.) and I have to say Forever Chic delivers the most in terms of specific, actionable advice -- especially for women over 40. The author understands what we need to know and is pragmatic about the lives of contemporary women. Plus, although she clearly loves her adopted country and believes French culture offers some advantages to obtaining a polished, attractive appearance that many American women miss out on, she doesn't make the common error of totally romanticizing the French and putting American women down as a bunch of troglodytes. This is one of the more helpful beauty books i've come across.

More than a book on style & beauty for the 40+ set, this is a delicious read, start to finish. "Sparkling" comes to mind as one of many appropriate adjectives, as Jett's dry wit and elegant, unselfconscious prose make this primer on French chic pure pleasure.

I truly wish this book includes those beautiful photos for different combination of dresses although the author gave detailed description of them. and I still give my rating of 5 star. Amy, China
