Hello there 🙂
Regardless of whether you have actually visited the French capital or not, you are probably familiar with the Parisian aesthetic. The "French Girl" look is characterized by messy bangs, a classic red lip and an effortless wrap dress, and a well-known style with roots in the early 1950s.
The French style, popularized by Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin, has since been reinterpreted by modern It girls like Sabina Socol and Jeanne Damas. While the classic jeans, white t-shirt and wicker pocket are still preserved, the look now includes slip skirts, blazers, corduroy pants, cardigans and more. Of course, the French approach to beauty and style is more relevant than the clothes themselves. The look is low-maintenance, slightly carefree and just "undone" enough.
We are happy to inform you that Parisian It-Girls still appreciate the classic French code to a certain extent, which makes it much easier for us to recognize and disassemble their outfit formulas. Shop the chic French outfits below that will never go out of style thanks to our favorite fashion influencers.
If we could choose a garment that has characterized the French girl style of the past six months, it would be the cardigan. While the look is popular in the U.S., French influencers like Sabina Socol and Anne-Laure Mais have given it their Parisian seal of approval and combined the style with everything from jeans and pants to dresses and slip skirts. Mais even designed different versions of the classic cardigan for her clothing brand Musier Paris.
The retro statement collar has made its round in the fashion set thanks to brands such as Miu Miu and Ganni. French influencers like Ellie Delphine from Slip Into Style took up the look with open arms and harmonized the prairie style top with edgy black leather and structured pants. If the bib collar is a little too much for you, collar polos offer a more subtle interpretation of the trend.
The combination of slip skirt and mules took root a few years ago, and French it girls like corn have embraced the look with open arms. We assume that this outfit formula will continue to stand the test of time. It's comfortable, practical, and just elegant enough. You can now buy a slip skirt in all imaginable colors, prints, and fabrics, and designers like By Far and Staud continue to lead the way in reviving open mule sandals.
We're infinitely obsessed with the combination of mini skirt and knee high boots, especially when it comes to a leather blazer. Keep it understated with a classic white t-shirt, a trendy chain necklace, and chunky, low-heeled boots a la Camille Charrière.
This list would not be complete without a classic floral dress. This effortless look is a staple of spring and embodies French style, especially when paired with espadrille wedges, a woven bag, and dainty gold jewelry. Sweep your hair into a claw clip to complete the look.
You can't go wrong with monochrome from head to toe, especially if it's a classic white button-down. Take notes from Parisian-born Claire Most and combine a light brown undershirt with white jeans and a crisp overshirt for an effortlessly chic ensemble.
Last but not least, we will always love a good graphic t-shirt. The vintage-inspired look has been an essential wardrobe for about five years, and French girls have combined it with everything from used-look jeans and blazers to midi skirts and heels.
