Achieving Elegance Through The French

Dear Ladies,

French ladies are the epitome of elegant style. French Women have been the leading style icon for centuries. Don’t believe me ask any historian. France is the home of many of our favorite designers, such as Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton and Celine the lists go on and on. Looking at all the french women nowadays specifically Parisan women, their style seems so different but so similar from each other. There are just a few key items they wear on repeat that gives them that chic, demure look.

Silk Slip Dress

A French women would not be caught dead in a neon mini dress at a formal event. The midi or maxi silk satin slip dress is a fail safe option.


Most women would wear a blazer for the office but the French no, no it’s needed for the style and look of a formal look they say. Look to the French for casual blazer looks.

Silky White Blouse

By now you can tell the French women loves the luxurious feeling of silk. French women wear a lot of white button ups, preferably silk. Paris weather is very inconsistent, Silk is temperature regulating. Silk keeps you cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cool.


Hate when those bumps appear on your arm when you’re cold, problem solved. A cardigan is light and easy for those chilly evenings. The Parisian women loves practicality.

Striped Top

You might feel like you’re wearing a costume when pairing this piece, but we all love a little bit of dress up don’t we. This now iconic pattern was first inspired by French sailors. Stripes were not the only things inspired by these sailors, the sailor hat and wide legged sailor pants were also from them.

Wrap Dress

The wrap dress is the most universally flattering garment on most body types. So much in fact the French style icon Jeanne Dumas is famous for wearing them.

Straight Jeans

Believe it or not ladies jeans, can be classy and elegant. When buying jeans go for a straight cut or a wide leg cut to really bring in that French chic look.

Trench Coat

The trench coat was originally designed by Burberry for soldiers. Inspiration comes from everywhere I see, invest in a nice Burberry trench coat. French women love to wear this on rainy spring days, also perfect for those who live in London.

Ballet Flats

Originally worn by ballet dancers, these shoes have weaved their way into everyday life. A nice comfortable shoe that is easy to walk in and can handle rocky terrain. Another bonus they are perfect on grass.

Strappy Sandals

A spring summer staple, easy to wear and style. For a non French trendy look go for the square toe strappy sandals. You can’t go wrong with strappy heeled sandals…. or can you?.

Wedges & Gold Hoops

This basic combination is seen on every other millennial French girl. Wedges are a classic summer must have and small gold hoops are always classy.

French women will always remain as the leading style icons or will the Italians begin to take over. Thank you ladies for tuning in on this Parisian style post, drop a comment and I will happily reply.
