We probably don’t need to sit here and remind you about why French-girl style is especially appealing. After all, we cover Parisian fashion on the regular to routinely offer up all the effortlessly-cool inspiration you could ever need. On that note, we recently highlighted the simple items an influencer swears by to look more “French,” and thought it may be of interest to dive even deeper into the “basic” pieces that make up a French woman’s wardrobe.
To do this, we went straight to the Instagrams of some of our favorite fashion people. What we uncovered is that Parisian women continue to wear seemingly simple outfits that are made up of more elevated basic items, but the ensembles in question don’t look basic in any way. They’re quite fashion-forward. Hey—what do you expect from the coolest style set out there?
To show you what we mean, we rounded up six French-girl spring outfits that are simple but quite impactful. And while you may have many of the items featured in each fit already in your closet, we shopped out inspired finds as well in case your wardrobe could use a refresh.
