I have a thing for French girl style. This probably doesn’t come as a big surprise for those who’ve been following me for a while. I like that je ne sais quoi, that mysterious boyish aesthetic, flirty but tough at the same time. Plus going to France for some time this summer (if you follow me on TikTok you’ll know), I couldn’t help but dive into the good old French girl summer wardrobe. Neutral palette. When wearing prints, go for season-less dainty florals. When wearing colours, chose timelessness.
If it’s floral, it’s midi, linen and has a slightly retro allure to it and puff sleeves. Then you’ll definitely tap into that French summer look. Bonus points if you wear it with sporty or chunky sandals. Linen clothes are everywhere right now, and to say I’m all about it is an understatement. Absolutely perfect for mixing together style and comfort. Breezy and effortless.
I like statement pieces and easy staples, just like French girls do. This royal blue shade is everything. It’s giving jewel tones, it’s giving classy, it’s giving chic. I am here for it! The nice and light silky fabric is perfect for a summer evening. Do not believe the cliché that French women don’t wear colour. That’s a lie. They just chose timeless pieces over trendy ones when pulling the trigger on a colourful piece of clothing.
Tailored shorts are a French girl summer staple. It’s what we call a go-to, especially when teamed with tanks, tees or button-downs. French women know their way around their wardrobe basics. Also, there is something quite effortless about cotton shorts. They build up to that I-didn’t-try-too-hard vibe. Cotton/safari shorts are versatile and can be dressed up or down, depending on our mood and the occasion. I love the simplicity of this black and white look!
