How to Dress Like a French Girl This Paris Fashion Week
When it comes to effortlessly chic aesthetics, France deserves all the awards. Everyone will agree that there is not one single person in that country that doesn’t have an incredibly cool sense of style. You may find a French woman wearing something that you already own, but it is their je ne sais quoi that makes it stand out.
Yves Saint Laurent first introduced this style in 1966, giving women the opportunity to wear well tailored smoking jackets. French women have been carrying this trend since then, wearing new versions of it or the classic and always perfect tux.
High heels are not and will never be something French women will choose to wear every day. To complete a look, always pick up flat shoes. They can be dressy, like the ones Clémence Poésy is wearing or whichever style of flats you’d like. Just remember, you need to be able to walk comfortably.
Is there anything more French than horizontal stripes? You can thank Jean Paul Gaultier for that. A horizontal striped t-shirt, swimsuit, funky dresses and basically anything is something you will always find inside a French woman’s wardrobe.
Less will always be more. Clean lines, streamlined silhouettes and keeping it to one or two colors per outfit is a very French thing to do. Do like Jane Birkin and pair your denim on denim look with a classic black t-shirt.
Black will always be the new black. Don’t try to replace it because it won’t work and French women know that very well. Full black outfits are all-purpose, always elegant, and will make you feel polished 24/7.
French women know that whenever they can’t decide what type of women outerwear to choose or feel like their outfit is missing something, they can go with the Moto Jacket and look perfect. This item adds that edgy side all French women carry while staying classy, of course.
Little to no make-up is something every French woman can rock. Paired with some delicate, cool and minimal accents and bam! French beauty all over.
