THE FRENCH GIRL STYLE GUIDE

Like women the world over, we have a long-standing obsession with French girl magnetism. From the simple (yet insanely chic) way the French dress to their easy-going approach to beauty to that inimitable 'je ne sais quoi' we try our best to recreate. 

The trick to replicating the elegance of a French woman is that she takes careful steps to make sure she doesn't appear to care at all.

Practically speaking, French wardrobe staples are just that: timeless, well fitted staples. Think black pants, classy skinny jeans, menswear-inspired blazers, crisp white blouses, and high-quality sweaters. As a matter of fact, think high-quality everything. Just as French style is made to last, so is nearly every element of a French woman’s wardrobe. 


How To Wear Jewelry Like A French Woman

If you had the chance to glance inside a French girl’s jewelry box, what, exactly, would you find? Chances are there would be a few essentials you’d discover. Parisian fashion girls have a thing for minimalistic jewelry.

Dainty gold jewelry staples fused into their wardrobes as seamlessly as a plain white T-shirt or the perfect pair of skinny jeans. But just like French girl style, it's less about what you wear and more about how you wear it. In France, jewelry is not something to be reserved for special occasions or carefully tailored to your OOTD. Instead, they're style staples a.k.a delicate, adorned pieces that are never taken off, acting less like accessories and more like a second skin.

French Girl Accessories

1. Thin Stacking Rings

We love the subtlety of dainty rings! A hand styled with a unique arrangement of tiny gold rings is pretty much a requisite if you're a French It girl. Thumb and pinky rings are très chic.
