Nothing epitomizes French-girl style quite like the effortless street looks we see popping up during Paris Fashion Week.
From tousled locks, fresh faces, and red lips, to sleek ensembles featuring a certain je ne sais quoi that we can only hope to replicate, we’re definitely gaga for Parisian style. Fortunately, you can pull off the laid-back glamour from the City of Light with just a few key pieces and tips to get you going. Faux leather moto jackets, chic sets, sleek pants, and other garments with max detail, you’ll be emulating French-girl style in no time. Plus, you can be even happier knowing that all of our picks are summer-to-fall transitional approved.
1. Chic Embroidered Top
French-girl style is far from boring and actually includes a lot more than just black-on-black. Although we love the monochrome look, too, the color palette can be bright and cheery, depending on your mood and the occasion. For a touch of color and whimsy, this particular embroidered top is a super sweet choice and great for pairing with jeans or trousers. Loafers would be tres chic, as would a felt beret. Flare leg or pencil style pants would add a vintage flair that would round out this top nicely. Priced at $88.
2. High Rise Pant
Nothing short of amazing, these unique high-rise pants were created with details in mind. Channel your inner French-girl by pairing these sleek pants with a blousy, romantic top or with a crisp white button-down with a faux leather vest. They come in multiple colors, but this neutral denim stripe look could quickly become a closet staple. Great with loafers or ankle booties, these would make great fall pants that would work well with a variety of layering pieces. Priced at $59.
3. Modern Chartreuse Set
French girls are known for their superior coordination and effortlessly chic sets. This lightweight short and jacket look works amazingly well with the printed dot top pictured above, and will carry you easily into fall. When the weather turns chilly, layer the shorts over a pair of black tights with a pair of ankle booties, and throw on a long sleeve top under the blazer. Scarves, hats, and minimalist cross-body handbags are the perfect added accessories. Priced at $98.
4. Faux Moto Jacket
A definite closet staple, this motorcycle jacket is a magnifique way to add a touch of ultra-chic edge to any outfit. Start wearing it now for nights out on the town paired with curve-hugging skinny jeans and a high-low chiffon top. And when the weather turns cool, a gingham skirt, black tights, a sweater, and ankle booties will make for the perfect autumn French-girl outfit. Priced at $119.
5. Sexy Power Pant
Whether for work or play, you’ll make a serious statement wherever you go in these pants. Sleek and flattering, these must-have bottoms feature a wide leg, center back zipper, and high-rise waist. Perfect with a graphic tee and heels, a sexy low-cut blouse, or a top made for the office, you’ll be able to wear these pants again and again. We absolutely love how they drape and think they’ll look amazing with heels or booties. Priced at $178.
