At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we (and the rest of the fashion-loving population, for that matter) can’t get enough of French-girl style. Blame it on the Parisian It girls and designers we’ve been fawning over since the beginning of their conception, but French girls simply have this je ne sais quoi about them that we can’t get enough of. Of course, while the idea of fully achieving the effortless aesthetic may slightly out of reach, these affordable French brands are making it so much easier.
Not to say that the classic French houses don’t have their time and place, but when you want to know what French girls are actually wearing in their day-to-day lives, these brands have you covered. Plus, they won’t cost you an entire month’s paycheck. The affordable French brands ahead are cool while maintaining that Parisian charm of being both trend-forward and classic. Basically, you’ll look like a true Parisian without trying too hard or spending too much. Keep reading to see the chic (and affordable) French brands your favorite Parisian girls swear by.
