About the Author

Marie-Anne Lecoeur is a French woman who is now based in Jersey, in the Channel Islands. Growing up in her native France, she got used to seeing well-dressed and confident women. This spurred her on to write her books to share her advice and tips to those women who need a bit of help in the style department. She also writes a blog where she gives advice on chic and elegance, teaching women what to wear for their body shape and size. As you never get a second chance at making a first impression, she knows the importance of getting it right for all occasions. Drawing from her life in France, she offers tips on French style and gives away the secrets of French chic.

This fun, compact book is full of practical style advice. It is a no-nonsense guide to being (as the title says) chic and elegant straight from a French woman. I found the author through her charming YouTube videos and instantly liked her savvy approach to elegance. She does have very strong opinions about style and has no trouble telling you what she approves of and doesn't approve of (which is, in itself, so French- j'adore!) Reading this book is like having a conversation with a stylish woman whose secrets you've always wanted to learn. Written with humor and panache!

Get the Kindle edition so you can click and visit the many web sites listed as references. I zoomed through this and am now going back to savor it like the best French bon bons. Have pen and paper handy when reading this book. I am a 65 year old U.S.-born woman and this book helped me. Some things were reminders and others were an ah-ha moment. Am now looking for sweet almond oil. Read the book to find out why.

All right, so quite many things mentioned in this book will seem obvious or be well known already to a lot of readers. I guess.
But it's a very good summary to safe, lasting choices, and sound advice.
I already read "The little black book of style" and I didn't think they overlapped - both were interesting and brought good tips, which is what I wanted from this book.
I'm a native French speaker and I thought the short quotes in French were hilarious - very "prim little lady" but to the point. (You're safe using them in public).

I found How to be Chic and Elegant a very useful/helpful read. I enjoyed Marie-Anne Lecoeur's humor and her common sense. The two areas that I found most insigntful was to buy quality over quantity (as I am a big bargin shopper and really need to work in this area) and less is more on accessories. I highly recommend this book if you are struggling with fashion issues.

I like that this book reads easily and to the point. There wasn't a lot of fluff and filler. The advice is good and somewhat timeless. I could easily skip over the parts that didn't apply to me such as hair coloring and go to the ones that I needed. I read it in its entirety first but I will g back and highlight the parts of particular interest to me. Great read.

If you want to present yourself as chic and elegant, this is a good little book to have with you. I'm following a lot of it already, but it's a strict reminder to never leave the house without looking your best. The hair and makeup tips were rather generic, but overall, it's a worthwhile read and something you'll go back to over and over.

This book is deceptively simple. If you've read anything at all in the french chic genre, online or in books, articles in magazines, this is familiar territory. The value lies in the way the author has put together a stripped down guide to chic and elegant presentation, the French way. From clothing to makeup, hair and skin care she covers it all.

She has a good table of contents that are linked for easy access. And the information while very brief is very very good. I originally gave this a lower review, thinking it was overpriced. What I overlooked was the clean, fluff free point by point course in how a French woman puts herself together.

I've had time to regret my original review, and come to appreciate this book for what it is. I don't think any other book can replace it, and it's become a favourite on my kindle bookshelf. I highly recommend it. I apologize for my earlier less favourable review. This book is worth 5 stars and probably worth a lot more than I paid for it.

A book that I will refer to again and again. Great tips on how to look stylish and elegant without breaking the bank. The sense of humor throughout is an added bonus.
