The French tend to have small apartments and therefor smaller closets. They tend to have just room for one jacket, a trench, a fabulous pair of denims and a lovely cocktail dress. The Parisian lady may rehash the same look many times but she will do so with class and dignity. French femmes usually prefer a well worn classic to a new but quickly forgotten department store buy. Edit your wardrobe like a Parisian and you will only have your best and chicest choices left and a little more money to spend per item.
