I Asked Some Cool French Girls What They're Buying for Fall

If you were to step onto the streets of Paris right now, in the heart of fall, what would you see the chicest women wearing? If you aren’t planning on booking a flight there to walk through the Marais and see for yourself, I have the next best thing for you: a shopping list curated by some of the most stylish French women. I asked some of the women whose style inspires me, personally, to tell me exactly what they’re wearing this fall, including their top shopping picks for the season.

Ahead, they’re sharing the essentials that every real Parisienne owns, as well as the new pieces they’re currently adding to their closets. From the perfect heels to wear with jeans to the oversize jackets for day-to-night sartorial success to knee-high boots that add polish to any outfit, these are the fashion buys they’re making this season. Scroll on to see what they recommend and shop them for yourself to tap into iconic French-girl style.
