If you’ve always considered yourself to be a minimalist or averse to the bold color trend, 2019 just may be your year. As we saw on the runway of heavy hitters including Tibi, Burberry, and Dior, fashion is on its way down to earth with a focus on head-to-toe earth tones (like brown, tan, beige, and the like). Naturally, French girls, in particular, are already ahead of the game and testing out the look on Instagram.

When you think about it, the trend does feel very Parisian with the pared-down nature and the monochrome feel. To that, we pulled some of our favorite French girls wearing the look to showcase how to rep it in 2019. Keep scrolling to get inspired and prepare to make a statement next year in the subtlest way possible.

Toss on an oversize beige coat and you've basically already mastered the trend with a coordinating top and trousers.

Follow this French It girl's lead and go for the all-brown look. While you could opt for pieces in all the same shade, mixing it up with different tones is just as effective.

A matching knit set in a muted tan is another easy way to jump on this 2019 trend. Incorporate other of-the-moment accessories (like snakeskin accents) and you're set.

If the head-to-toe brown or tan look isn't your thing, break up the trend with jeans and simply go for the trend on top with a printed blouse and jacket.

Yes, even brown can make a huge statement. Case in point: this eye-catching coat. Done and done.
