I'm aware that by this point, French-girl style is a bit of a trope in the fashion community. Still, I find myself enamored with the easy way my Parisian counterparts can effortlessly make even the simplest pieces seem oh so cool. I feel no shame in saying I have a healthy number of hip French women filling up my Instagram feed, inspiring me to mix things up for the summer.
So what are the trends I've plucked from these understated trendsetters? Below are seven easy-to-replicate styles I'm trying out in the coming months. From full-on outfits to one-off accessories, add these to your closet, and poof—you're practically French. And while you may not have the means to jet-set to Cannes with your new buys in tow, we're of the mindset that if you're sitting somewhere chic with wine and a cheese plate, it's basically the same thing.
Read on to shop the French pieces we're currently obsessing over.
White Jeans and Tee
Available in sizes XS to XL.
Available in sizes 23 to 32.
While girls around the world opt for denim cutoffs, the French take is with a simple tee tucked in.
Available in sizes 24 to 30.
For a summer date-night look, style espadrilles with simple high-waisted bottoms and a lightweight blouse.
Available in EU/IT sizes 35 to 41.

A hat goes just as well with a casual swimsuit as it does with a fancier dress.
For a French-girl take, choose a style with a wide, flat brim, avoiding anything too floppy.
A bold color (and hey, shorts too) make this suit feel anything but stuffy.
Available in Violeta sizes XS to XL.
