We all know the French girl fashion archetype by now, but when temperatures soar it’s time to pack away those Bretons and pumps in favour of more summer-friendly options. We’ve turned to our favourite Gallic beauties for some warm weather inspo – from Parisian poster girl Jeanne Dumas to fashion-forward Loulou de Saison, here are five ways to do easy French-inspired style now…
Blogger Adenorah, aka AnneLaure Mais, perennially nails that illustrious French-American hybrid, pairing cult US brands like Réalisation Par with Gallic sartorial tropes for a cool twist. This look is no exception – take heed by teaming busy print skirts with white and gold accessories, with a classic French designer logo thrown into the mix for extra points.
Proving that French fashion isn’t all about a uniform, we’re looking to mega-influencer Camille Charriere for accessible outfit inspo. Just team a relaxed shirt with kick flare denim for easy everyday style, adding baskets, St Christophers and oversized sunnies for a modern update.
French girl fashion isn’t limited to city life – apply the same dressing rules to the beach, sticking to statement accessories with a killer bikini for a trend-lead look that isn’t too fussy. Chloé, aka Loulou de Saison, is the ultimate Gallic holiday inspo.
Famed for her vampy take on French girl style, we love Jeanne Dumas’ sexy everyday edits. The key is in the night-wear-inspired separates, gold details and statement bold lip – just add white cotton layers and everyday wedges for a bit of balance.
Channel the more pared-back element of French fashion by sticking to the basics – a pretty white blouse, denim and simple accessories can still have impact, as proven by Sabina Socol. Adhere to one colour palette with choice directional details for easy everyday dressing
