Ok, I am not French, but my style at times is definitely inspired by the French girl style. Who better to emulate than the chicest women from the chicest city in the world?! My fervor for fashion has me always reading other fashion blogs and articles online, and from what I can tell there are two major themes for dressing like a French girl: minimalism & flats (stripes don’t hurt either)! French girls keep it simple with minimal accessories and simple sets like my skirt and top combo. I, myself never really go overboard with the accessories. If I have a statement necklace on, that is the focus and I don’t wear much else. If I have dangling earrings, I skip the necklace and maybe throw on a simple bracelet.
Without fail, the articles also always tell me that flats = French. Parisian women always look effortless; probably because they opt for easy. I suppose flats are better suited for running around the streets of Paris! If you want to go for French girl style, next time you are wearing a skirt or dress pair it with flats or ankle boots and soon you’ll be saying Bonjour to your new French look!
