First Lady of France’s Layered Look Is a Lesson on How to Wear Dresses in Winter

Monochrome styling continues in 2020.

Brigitte Macron joined her husband Emmanuel Macron, president of France, along with the Prime Minister of Luxembourg Xavier Bettel and his husband Gauthier Destenay for talks about current European affairs at the Elysee Palace in Paris today.

For the occasion, Brigitte chose to layer pieces of the same color, a styling hack that took over celebrity closets in fall 2019; France’s first lady’s take on the trend included a navy blue midi-length coat over a matching navy high-neck knee-skimming dress.

She continued her monochrome ensemble with a pair of dark blue suede pumps with a pointed toe and a tall heel.

The chief of the European Council, Charles Michel, joined the French president and Luxembourg’s prime minister along with his partner Amelie Derbaudrenghien. The group of European officials met to discuss the European Union’s priorities and current affairs as the new year kicks off.

The French first lady oftentimes favors Louis Vuitton when it comes to clothing, shoes and accessories. With footwear, specifically, she leans toward pointed-toe pumps with a stiletto or block heel usually around 4 inches high. Louis Vuitton’s Eyeline is one of her favorites and she also frequents the graphic-print Matchmake pump.
