How to Nail Clémence Poésy's Effortless French-Girl Style

It’s a fact that some of the best dressers in the fashion universe possess an inherent style signature that they rarely deviate from. And hey, if it ain’t broke, why fix it? French actress Clémence Poésy is proof of this notion. The petite Harry Potter star unapologetically returns to a recipe of a few key pieces but manages to never look predictable. How does she do it?

Well, a close analysis of some her most covetable looks reveals a penchant for denim, ankle boots, and something eye-catching up top, be it a romantic blouse or a statement jacket. As a Chanel ambassador, lucky Clémence has no shortage of access to the latter, but the way she makes a pastel tweed cover-up look effortless is worth taking note of. She thinks nothing of pairing it with clumpy monk straps or lace-up derbies. She also has a wardrobe bursting with fluid, feminine Chloé pieces thanks to her role as the face of the French fashion house’s Love Story fragrance.

What’s easy to take away from Clémence’s enviable style is how effortless she looks. She’s wearing those jackets—not the other way round. Comfort is key, but an interesting detail on a shirt or a strategically placed trilby ensures that she never looks boring. So before you blast yourself for always dressing up that same pair of jeans, just think: What would Clémence do?
