It’s undeniable that French girls are known for their effortlessly chic style; that style-setters and women worldwide long to emulate. While it seems like it is part of their genes, it is down to their key style rules that they follow. To achieve French girl fashion, shop for timeless, classic pieces rather than the major trends.
This way, you’ll always look timeless, and more of your wardrobe will work together seamlessly. When you’re putting an outfit together, it’s best to go for the ‘less is more’ approach. Keep it simple and don’t add too many colours, textures or accessories to your look. We love brands like Sandro, Maje and Isabel Marant, Reliquia, Matin, Equipment and Frame to shop that French girl look.
The key secret to that je ne sais quoi we all long to achieve, is investing in classic wardrobe staples. Scroll down to put together your shopping list:
Women who ooze that effortless French girl style love to mix feminine and masculine styles together. A sheer, floaty long sleeve shirt is perfectly paired with classic high-waisted pants.
Worn almost daily, French women absolutely love denim. It’s worth investing in a pair that fits you well, and polished enough you can accessorize them for day or night.
A chunky sweater:
Opt for a chunky sweater in classic hues of navy, camel, crème or black. The tip to give it that French fashion twist; buy it in a larger size for a relaxed, oversized fit.
Sticking to the less is more approach, invest in classic accessories that you’ll love forever. Gold hoops, a chunky chain necklace and two-tone kitten heels are always a good choice.
Classic blazers and longline wool duster coats are a French girl staple. Worn year-round with your favourite denim pieces, layer them together for a 2018 update.
