It goes without saying that French-girl style is founded on the tenets of simplicity and effortlessness. It also comes as no surprise that Parisian It girl Jeanne Damas has the French-girl fashion formula mastered to a T—literally reducing her wardrobe to two pieces that pair perfectly for every occasion, every time. While she does step out in the occasional floral dress or velvet jumpsuit, her usual go-to is wonderfully dressed down yet always appropriate.
A quick scroll through Damas's Instagram feed reveals a simple silhouette she's made her signature. In photo after photo, the French photographer, model, and muse is consistently dressed in a low-plunging blouse and high-waisted pants. Yet the repetition is hardly monotonous. Each time, Damas infuses her signature look with new life, varying materials and makes—blouses in cinched velvet, billowing silk, eye-catching prints—and switching up color by showing off a covetable collection of vintage jeans in every wash. If reducing your wardrobe is on your list, take note of this fail-safe formula that will never go out of style.
