French word of the day: bronzé

Def: tan

Everyone is returning from their summer vacances this week. Stores, boulangeries, restaurants are opening one by one, bringing daily life back to the city. Sure enough, the Frenchies are blessed with great skin: it seems to soak up the sun and turn golden brown, making everyone more beautiful than normal. However, I've noticed quite a few people recently whose tans are disturbingly dark and au savage. Their skin isn't merely tan, but orange. Fashion faux pas, don't they know?
