Before you read anything, I think you need to know that what we imagine to be French summer style is a bit of a cliché, and you know what? I’m okay with that. There is a lot that I love about French fashion. It’s elegant, classic, and a little bit sassy, but it’s not known for being experimental. And who says that you need to be completely out-there when it comes to your summer wardrobe? If it ain’t broke, and all that. When it comes to dressing for the warmer months, I always see the same key pieces cropping up on Parisian women. I’ve analysed the style of several of my favourite French influencers and worked out that there are nine items that are pretty much guaranteed to make an appearance during the warmer months.
From the perfect white T-shirt to a slinky slip dress, there are plenty of items that you probably already own. Nothing here is complicated. While I can’t guarantee that the current climate is going to change into glorious sunshine the moment you wear any of these items, I can guarantee you might feel a little more French. So go forth, and take a look at the following items to plan your summer wardrobe accordingly tout suite!
