University Style/ France

Jump to last reply

I am moving to Orleans,France to study French for two semesters. I am a 25 year old American girl. Each day I catch myself wanting to buy more to prepare for France. Also, I don't want to be pinpointed as an American girl.
I know that the French wear neutrals and layers. What I mostly find on google is articles about Parisians, and I know that not all French dress "Parisian chic." So here are some questions:
What kind of coats do the students wear in France during winter?
What type of bag do the students carry? Backpack or shoulder bag? What colors?
Do French carry their text books around school? Or are there lockers available?
Any other advice is always appreciated!
Thank you all in advance!!
