Our Favorite French Girls Of Instagram


Endless streams of street style shots and envy-inducing editorial spreads are proof positive that when it comes to effortless dressing, French femmes outshine us Yankee gals 9 times out of 10. We say, if you can’t beat them, join them.

In honor of Bastille Day, we picked 7 Parisiennes – including an insanely chic mother-daughter duo — with killer taste and Instagram feeds to match and decoded each one’s personal style for your shopping convenience. You can say merci later.
