The world is obsessed with the famous classic French-girl style, and we all want that “je ne sais quoi” they have that many can’t put their fingers on. Luckily, there are thousands of Parisian girls posting their looks on Instagram. But it is impossible to follow all of them, and quite frankly, not all are worth following. But first things first.
What’s the French-girl style in fact?
Nothing is more eloquent than images. That’s why we gathered the best French-girl Instagram accounts to give you some inspiration and directions on how to get the desired style. But we can summarise it in few keywords: effortless, classic, nonchalant, something vintage, fresh.
The classic French girl is always effortless because she has the perfect balance between being dressed up and being laid-back at the same time. Unlike the Americans, for example, the Parisian girl loves fashion, but she is not stressed to have the last trend in her wardrobe and look like coming directly from a fashion runway. Instead, a classic French girl is looking for top quality materials, timeless design, and versatile pieces to mix and match. On top of all, they happily invest in good accessories and always have sexy haircuts.
E voilá, here are our suggestions for you!
