How To Dress Like A French Girl This Spring

Dress Like A French Girl

Yes, our admiration of the ‘French girl’ still reigns true! We already shared where the French “It girls” shop, and now here’s your guide to dressing like one this spring. The trick is simple: don’t overthink and don’t over-plan. Build a wardrobe of pieces you can mix and match and follow our simple formula for dressing like a French girl all season long.

THE DRESSES

Floral Wrap Dress: To get the French girl look, wear this with flat sandals, espadrilles….or sneakers.

Ribbed Mini Dress: No fuss, no muss. Throw on this simple knit style for errands or a glass of rosé.

Wrap Mini Dress: The French girl style is all about a wrap with a mini dress, midi dress or blouse.

Square Neck Slip Dress: Like we said, less is more. That’s especially the case with this sexy dress.

 

THE TOPS

Drawstring Blouse: Don’t let the word ‘drawstring’ alarm you. Plan on seeing plenty more of this style in the coming months!

Ribbed Tee Shirt: Tuck this simple tee into high-waist jeans or cropped pants.

Satin Wrap Top: This top exudes sophistication, but when you wear it with relaxed jeans and a straw bag, it’s the perfect casual look for spring.

Floral Print Blouse: Such a versatile piece for your spring wardrobe—you can wear it with any of the bottoms or shoes featured for a new look.

 

THE BOTTOMS

Denim Culottes: Trust us, you’ll want to wear these high-waist culottes with everything this spring and summer!

Wide High Waist Jeans: The wrap belt on these jeans elevates them just enough to make the jeans-and-a-tee look much more stylish.

Kick Flare Jeans: Our new favorite silhouette in denim is a French girl fave. Dress it up or down with any of the tops, and the higher the waist the better.

Ruffle Tie Mini Skirt: We would keep the look simple with this flirty style and wear a knit tee or short-sleeve sweater.

Denim Skirt: Opt for a longer length—think knee length and below.

 

THE EXTRAS

Espadrilles: Luckily, espadrilles are one of the season’s hottest shoe trends, so you won’t find a shortage of options in every height and color combo. Our vote? Go with a neutral like beige, navy or black.

Straw Basket Bag: The classic French girl essential is a straw basket bag!

Cat Eye Sunglasses: Wear these with anything in your wardrobe and you’ll be on-trend this season—we love the retro vibes.
