French girls are probably the most followed on Instagram. Why? They always look so effortlessly fresh and elegant. However, the look is not hard to achieve. You only need a few simple items to create the classic look!
Linen clothing is perfect for the summer months because it wicks away moisture. Yet it is also beautiful. UO Gabrielle Gold Linen Midi Wrap Dress is a gorgeous colour, while Margaret Midi Dress has brilliant tortoiseshell detailed buttons. For a shorter alternative, we adore Asos’ linen off shoulder mini dress with tortoiseshell buttons.
White shirts may seem like an obvious choice and something that the majority of us own, not just french girls. However, they make it a staple in their wardrobes and usually opt for a more expensive shirt that will last and is timeless. Newlook’s Off-White V-Neck Boxy Shirt has the same tortoiseshell buttons as some of our favourite linen dresses, this simple detail can make a garment look so much more expensive! Whereas Lipsy Flute Sleeve Tie Waist Bardot Top is off the shoulder and on trend!
A striped t-shirt may seem slightly boring. But it is so elegant when worn with the right trouser (linen preferably). Nautical Navy Striped T-Shirt is the first choice, you cant go to the French Riviera without seeing it! For a longer sleeved option, Missguided navy Drop Shoulder Striped Long Sleeve T-shirt is perfect for those cooler evenings!
French girls buy less Jewellery but more expensive pieces that will last them forever. The key is to go for more delicate pieces that go with everything, such as Jon Richard Buckle bangle or Esther Cross Hoop Earrings!
