As I so often do, I recently turned to some of the most stylish French women I admire from across the Atlantic to find out their current take on fashion. While I’ve asked them about everything from the trends they’re skipping this year to their best gift ideas—and I have even weighed in on my own fashion learnings after living in Paris myself—this time around, I was interested in finding out which investment pieces they would be buying in 2019.
Ahead, I’m sharing my findings. Just as their styles range, so do the pieces that made it onto their personal lists. With everything from Gucci’s Instagram-worthy crystal hair clips and tailored suiting to classic suiting and pieces straight from the Louis Vuitton runway, these are the French girl–approved investment pieces they have handpicked for their closets in 2019. Go on to see why each piece made the cut and shop them for yourself.
