French Girl Dress Code

'French girl style' is totally having its moment in the USA. American girls are pulling inspiration from Parisian street style and dreamy instagram babes (my favorite forever and always will be Anne-Laure Mais @adenorah.) French women are sophisticated yet playfully care free with the way they dress. They keep hair and makeup natural. It celebrates a new wave of femininity. It doesn't feel stuffy and constricted. Femininity in French style is freeing, and embraces the modern day creative woman.  I cannot wait to head to Paris in August to see how first hand how women dress. Through my constant studies, I am sharing what pieces I think every American girl should invest in to feel as cool as any French babe.
THE WHITE BLOUSE- This is a classic item, that transitions seamlessly for work and play. I don't think a woman can have too many white tops. A crisp cotton blouse, is a go to for French women. The simplicity allows for the natural beauty and character of a woman to shine through.


TAILORED DENIM- Just like LA girls, French girls love their denim. I always prefer vintage with a raw hem, but Reformation always has some rad options if you want to buy new. High waisted is ultra flattering, and adds a little pep to your booty. Denim is classic, and will always be worth the investment. 


THE STATEMENT SANDAL- French girls are savy when it comes to their footwear. They use this accessory to express their personal/unique styles. They also care about comfort and practically, so the  heels are typically a block. Low heels are much more chic than a skinny sky high stiletto. I dig these Charlotte Stone sandals so much for a electric pop of color. All of you know too, I adore local LA brand Marais


TIMELESS BAG- The bag is the piece to showcase timeless vs. trendy style. French girls invest in high quality (and durable products). Whether its a structured cross body, or a weaved basket bag. Their purses are often vintage inspired, and feel as if they could fit in any era.
