15 New French Girls to Follow in 2019

After spending some time living in Paris myself—and then traveling back as much as possible—I've discovered my love for French style knows no bounds. At Who What Wear, I touch on the topic at length, often dissecting everything from their winter wardrobe essentials to the bags they always skip to the It item they’re wearing, but also what I learned after spending a summer living in an apartment in the Marais—from the pieces I’ll never wear again to how my times the French guided me into my career as a fashion editor.

When I don’t have the chance to make the trip overseas or chat with French girls for their fashion insights, I’m very often scrolling through their Instagram feeds to discover their latest fashion finds and see the outfits they’re wearing. After all, there is always more to learn from French girls with great style. Ahead, I’m breaking down a fresh roster of stylish French girls to fuel your Instagram inspiration for the New Year ahead.
