There are certain French-girl qualities that elicit unquestionable admiration—their elusive laissez-faire attitude to style, the fact that they don’t diet, they never follow trends, and heaven forbid, they never use hair dryers. No one exudes this effortless cool vibe quite like fashion muse Jeanne Damas. Founder of sought-after cool-girl brand Rouje, just one scroll of her Instagram feed will have you hankering to simplify your wardrobe down to Jane Birkin–esque basket bags, vintage-inspired dresses, and high-waisted cropped jeans. (Just add a bicycle or a moto and you’re practically French.)
So while soaking in a soupçon of French style by way of Jeanne’s Insta feed this past month, I noticed one item the It girl can’t seem to stop wearing this season: a simple, sultry, and delicate silky nightie. From nights out dancing to fancy Vogue dinners, Jeanne’s collection of vintage-style nighties is lust-worthy. Proving once again that the simplest pieces can look cool when styled with a red lip and perfect accessories.
Luckily, we’ve scoured high and low for the chicest silk nighties and slip dresses on the market right now to emulate the simple yet striking French-girl look. Just add this season’s barely there strappy sandals and a vintage-inspired purse. (And throw a leather jacket over your shoulders for a look that will take you into fall.) Your easiest night-out outfit, found!
