Next time I see a French gent dressed head-to-toe toute en l'orange (like in Fontainebleau) I will know this is an Aixoise far from home...
Chere PBers, when you head Sud do not go toute en noir like yours truly svp!
White/blanc = YES/oui but of course
Even if it looks like you stepped out of bed in your nightie, if it's white you're A-OK in Aix.
Neutrals OK if they are layered, flowie and you can pass as a 60s hippie gypsy.
White Panama hats are de rigeur
Any hat is preferred to none since "mad dogs, Englishmen and Aixoises like to go out in the noonday sun".
On ze feet, wear as little as possible.
Havaianas flip flops are the permanent flavor of the month here, so Brazilieras can feel right at home. The rest of us will have to shell out the 28€ for a couple of strips of rubber/plastic? to blend in...
Les kidlets can get away with wearing black evidently...
But most will be wearing a riot of colors as kids do anywhere in the world. So be it.
Dogs can come as they are.
