Petticoats on the outside is one of the hot looks this summer in Paris

Seen from the #61 bus
The lacy jupe/skirt is usually worn over leggings
Are these take-offs on traditional French boy's school smocks?
Certainly Le Bon Marche is taking a page out of the school smock look plus a generous helping of writer Colette's Claudine at School.
Side note- I always wished my mother had named me 'Claudine' instead of after a visitor to her hospital room since I didn't turn out to be a 'Charles'
c'est la vie
Guerlain showed a frou-frou jupe for their new perfume, La Petit Robe Noire promotion coming at last to the US this Fall. Hooray
Another reference for the frilly, lacy short jupe could be Repetto's enticing windows - letting us relive our ballerina dreams over and over

Au Moulin Rose would like you to go ruffly all the way...
One of Paris' best loved pink ruffles sits on the divine Ispahan by Pierre Herme, copied many times over but never the same.
An inedible ruffle on Christine Ferber's confiture at Pierre Herme, just as delicious no?
Totally edible, these ruffles made of macarons at Angelina
Me, I'm happy to keep my petticoats well-hidden while getting my toes wet preferably at Nice or Antibes s'il vous plait...
