How to Get your French Girl Look Going

There’s no denying that French women have a certain je ne sais quoi, a certain something going on. They always seem to look chic, while making it look effortless.

So how do they do it? The answer lies in simplicity and quality. Here are the perfect items you need to build your own French girl look:

A tailored blazer

A dark, well-cut blazer adds the finishing touch to any outfit and works well with everything, even jeans, and a T-shirt.

A striped top

The mariniere look is as a French as it gets. Blue and white is the classic stripe combination.

A white, button-down shirt or another man-style shirt

A crisp, white shirt (or several) isn’t known as a timeless wardrobe staple for nothing.

White pants

Well-cut white pants, perhaps grazing the ankle, are the classic partner to the striped matelot top.


The little black dress is a French girl’s go-to number, taking her from the coffee shop to work to a late dinner.

Oversized sunglasses

Think Brigitte Bardot, and choose large, dark frames for a chic finish.

Red lipstick

For a touch of drama and a bold splash of color that screams confidence, paint your lips scarlet.
