Get The Look: French Girl Street Style

June 5, 2024

Chic. Elegant. Timeless. Paris has been dubbed the fashion capital of the world and for good reason. Aside from some of the oldest and most respected fashion houses calling France their home, the street style in Paris is unmatched. The classic French girl look is an effortless style that never goes out of fashion.

With the rise of street style inspiration accounts on social media and the popularity of Emily in Paris, the classic style continues to prove that it is ageless. If you’re looking to elevate your personal style this is the perfect formula to emulate the ever-stylish French Girl. —Sheila O’Neill

The Céline Triomphe Glasses

The it-girl sunglasses of summer 2024 have to be the Céline Triomphe Metal Frame sunglasses. Opting for a sleek metal frame offers a more feminine and elegant profile than an oversized plastic sunglass.


Made popular by one of the most famous fashion houses, Chanel, the durable fabric is practically synonymous with French fashion. This adorable Anabella Bow Top and matching shorts in tweed from French-inspired LA boutique, Nana Jacqueline is a darling take on the classic fabric.

Ballet Flats

One thing is true about Parisian girls, they are getting their steps in and looking good while doing it. For a chic Parisian look, opt for a classic pair of ballet flats. The Chanel lambskin ballerinas are a versatile shoe you will reach for over and over.

Basket Bag

Before we had the Birkin, we had basket bags, quite literally. As the story goes, Jean-Louis Dumas (executive at Hermès) had the iconic bag designed for its namesake, Jane Birkin, after he sat next to her on a flight and witnessed her spilling the contents of her bag. Jane often carried her belongings around in a  signature straw tote, which had recently been run over. The Miu Miu Basket Bag is a young and fresh accessory to any French inspired outfit.

The Handkerchief

Whether you’re tying it around your head, or your neck a silk scarf is a quaint accessory and a staple in French fashion. This square scarf from Dior is an investment piece you will have forever.

Extra Credit

To complete your French girl look, nothing says “effortless” like a bouquet of fresh flowers, or a baguette stuffed into your tote bag and a bicycle for transportation.
