The 14th of July marks independence day in France, and was a gory beginning to the French Revolution marked by the storming of the Bastille prison (hence it’s name) and the release of its crazy prisoners. I love all things French so for me, the fourteenth is a day that I always eat at my favorite French restaurant (Hemingway’s Bistro in Oak Park, Illinois—in case you’re curious) and don my favorite French fashions.

Personally I adore Marie-Antoinette so I wear pro-royalist fashions. Whether you’re a fan of the monarchy or the revolution, here are some fun French-inspired fashions to rock on Bastille Day.
