What All the Cool French Girls Are Wearing on Instagram, in 10 Perfect Outfits

We know chic is the most overused word in fashion, but French girls really are, aren’t they? Paris has been at the center of style for centuries. It is the birthplace of storied fashion houses like Chanel, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, and many more, so is it any wonder the women have style running through their veins? If you’re anything like us, your inspo boards are full of icons like Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin, and Lou Doillon, their outfits all worn with an air of that effortless je ne sais quoi.

It may sound like a stereotype, but French women never play too hard into trends, instead preferring signatures pieces that don’t date. However, it shouldn't be presumed that this more reliable method of getting dressed results in the same outfits every year: In 2018, there are subtle nuances and updates that bring some classic ideas into the new but also push the Parisian code a little further than before. Blame it on the rise of global style via Instagram, but the concept of French outfits is more varied than the Breton-jeans-blazer combo you may be used to.

Here at Who What Wear, we can spot a French style star a mile off, so we looked to our favorite French influencers whose stylish feeds are full of quintessentially Parisian looks of the modern variety. So even if you’re not strutting down the Seine, your outfit can still make it seem like you are.
