How To Nail Summer Style Like A French Girl

When it comes to looking effortlessly stylish, French girls have it down. With their impeccable taste and curated wardrobe of go-to pieces, they all display that je ne sais quoi aesthetic that reads both feminine and cool. And with summer’s warm weather, now’s the perfect time for us to channel their signature looks via lightweight separates and of-the-moment accessories that are quintessentially Gallic (think high-waisted denim, floaty blouses and straw totes). Ahead, four très-chic outfit formulas that’ll have everyone mistaking you for a Parisian. Oui, oui.


French-Girl Summer Style

A straight-leg denim-and-front-tie-top combo is one that French girls are wearing daily right now. Complete the look with bright slip-on pumps and a ladylike structured raffia bag.

For a charming daytime ensemble, opt for a matching linen top and skirt set rendered in a pretty pastel hue. Accessorize with abstract gold statement earrings, leather mules and a classic top-handle carryall.

A printed V-neck mini with sleeves is the dress style for summer. French girls love to team the staple with lace-up espadrilles, white oval sunnies and a woven straw tote.

A jumpsuit is another way Frenchies love to rock denim. Layer a thin tee underneath, slip on vibrant block-heel sandals and add a mini top-handle for some final European flair.
