How To Do French Girl Style In 6 Parisian Brands

Want to look as effortless cool and polished as a Parisian girl? A wealth of French fashion labels here in the UK can help you nail the look.

From Maje to Sandro, the coolest brands are delivering across the board this season, from off-duty essentials to glamorous evening looks, but with a signature French spin on every piece; think tweed bomber jackets, puff-sleeve white blouses and quirky trenches. As longstanding fans of the Gallic look, the SL fashion team headed to the fashion epicentre, Paris, to showcase spring’s most stylish, wearable pieces…

This Maje look proves clashing patterns can be subtle; we love the spring-ready florals teamed with a classic tweed finish. The bomber shape and gold hardware put a cool spin on the otherwise feminine edit.

Charlotte wears Maje Tweed-Style Biker Jacket, £315 | Long Printed Dress With Pleated Jewel, £370

Consider this a masterclass in how to do head-to-toe neutrals. Button details on the knit keep things interesting, whilst Isabel Marant-inspired boots nod to contemporary French girl style.

Lu wears BA&SH Austin Jumper, £240 | Heiko Shirt, £190 | Daria Denim, £175 |  | Camus Belt, £90 | Caitlin Boots, £410

Denim, leather, slogan tee and oversized cardi… this Sandro look confirms modern French style is anything but twee. The label’s selection of classics with a twist is perfect for a cool everyday edit.
How’s this for a bit of Parisian rock n roll? Zadig knows how to do that slightly dishevelled, glamorous aesthetic, and this shacket/leopard print combo is ideal for weekend days and evenings out alike.

Georgie wears Zadig & Voltaire Rooka Leo Dress, £270 | Kid Mili Parker, £305 

Balance out pretty Parisian-inspired details (that means ruffle collars and cuffs) with directional layers – this Navajo knit and stitch-embellished jeans nod to the Western trend in a subtle way.

Charlotte wears Claudie Pierlot Aztec-Style Jacquar Knit Jumper, £260 | Lace Top With Victorian Collar, £199 | Contrast Stitch Jeans, £165

Remember what we said about classics with a twist? This contemporary anorak-cum-trench brings a fresh feel to a simple monochrome edit, whilst oversizing a boucle cardigan gets the balance of smart and cool just right.
Transitional dressing is made easy with this linen top and smart trousers combination. Lacy details and covered buttons feminise the otherwise slick monochrome pairing.

Astrid wears Sézane Cleo Blouse, £90 | Marty Trouser, £100 

Put a fresh spin on tailoring with an of-the-moment sleeveless jacket, adding a wide sleeve and cinched waist for a nod to more classic Parisian style.

Georgie wears BA&SH Stanley Jacket, £265 | Axelle Shirt, £165 | Talent Jeans, £170 | Caitlin Boots, £415
