From Town & Country

Everyone looks to French fashion for outfit inspiration: it is one of its most famous (and enviable) exports. And Paris in the 1960s is hands down its golden age. Parisians of that decade truly mastered the covetable combination of elegance and a carefree attitude. Plus, name a more iconic era of fashion heavyweights: Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot, Françoise Hardy, and Catherine Deneuve. Whether you love vintage-inspired outfits or tend to be more modern, follow their lead for a fall French wardrobe with that certain je ne sais quoi.

Xbox Gift Guide 2020: Best Gifts For Xbox Series X/S And Xbox One Owners

Microsoft has a big holiday season ahead of itself, with new consoles, accessories, and games on the market. Big games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Yakuza: Like A Dragon are purported to show off the power of the next-gen Xbox Series X and S consoles, but with Microsoft’s commitment to backwards compatibility, all Xbox One games and a varied library of Xbox 360 and original Xbox titles are also playable on the Series X and S. On top of that, all Xbox One accessories will be compatible with both of the new Xbox consoles, making this console launch particularly exciting–you don’t have to buy a brand-new set of accessories for your loved one if they’re getting a new console.

Unfortunately, the Xbox Series X and Series S are currently sold out after preorders went live on September 22, but it’s possible some consoles will be restocked before the holidays. Microsoft
