Although they say ‘je ne sais quoi’ can not be learned, here are some sources you can use to find out more about it.
First of all I recommend Justine Leconte’s Youtube channel. She is a French designer who currently lives in Germany and she started her Youtube channel 2 years ago. She has a French series (videos about French food, beauty secrets, style tips and wardrobe essentials) and others from which you can learn a lot from the fashion industry itself (for example how to differentiate good quality from bad and how to dress for your body shape). You can find her official website here.
