How to Dress Like A French Girl


French girl chic is the sartorial jewel in the fashionista crown. Synonymous with off-duty elegance, barely there makeup, topped off with undone perfectly styled hair ... there's something deeply covetable about that easy-breezy French gal style.

So, how do you achieve that perfect Parisian look? C'est simple! Follow these rules for everyday French style.

1. A classic camel-coloured coat is a French-girl must. The go-to for dressing up or dressing down, it's as perfect worn over shoulders during a Spring stroll as it is for the weekly commute.

2. A small leather bag is an essential. Nothing too big, just the right size to hold the essentials for whizzing around the city.

3. What says French style more than elegant flats? Ranging from the chic loafer, to the sophisticated mule to the understated ballet pump, these flats are as stylish as they are versatile.

4. The plain white t-shirt is an integral item of the French girl uniform.  Worn with a pair of jeans for off-duty elegance, slouchy and styled with a blazer for casual cool, worn with a mini and flats for city chic... the style choices are endless!

5. All season French Girl style starts with denim. Straight leg jeans to be more precise. A chic style statement everyday.

6. Oversized boy-shirts are a French girl favourite. Throw over shorts or loosely tuck into tailored trousers for a winning combination.

 7. Blazers are a biggie. Is there anything more instantly outfit transforming than a beautifully tailored, slightly oversized blazer? A timeless piece.

 8. Trenchcoats are another hit. The perfect transitional piece for warmer days and cooler evenings. A simple basic that makes any outfit effortlessly chic.

9. A printed silk scarf is a year-round staple and all-time favourite. A statement piece that's as quintessentially Parisian as the striped tee; no French woman's wardrobe is complete without a scarf to add colour and interest to their daily chic style.
