I Love French-Girl Style, so I Cataloged the 11 Trends They're Especially Into

We know, dear readers, you're into what the stylish ladies over in France are wearing, and so am I. French girls have it down: Their style is effortlessly cool, basic but not boring, and unconventional yet refined, which is why we look to them on the regular for style inspiration. French girls are constantly setting new trend precedents and mixing some expected basics with other complete wild cards. Accordingly, I’ve meticulously combed through the Instagram accounts of some of our favorite stylish ladies to see what trends they are unveiling next, and let me tell you—they are good

From '70s-inspired "granny" sunglasses and the new cool-girl button-down shirt to vibrant jewel tones and exaggerated collars, French girls are serving some serious style right now. While luxury fashion buys from some of our favorite French fashion houses will always be aspirational, it's also exciting to score that high-fashion, French feel at an affordable price. We know everyone's budget is different, so I aimed to provide a few options per trend at different price points with none over $300. Ahead, discover 35 incredibly chic yet affordable fashion finds that follow the trends endorsed by some of our favorite French girls.
