What To Wear To Look Like A French Woman

We talk about it all the time: dressing like a French woman is the best way to look effortlessly chic. But what exactly does that mean?

You don’t need to spend hours in front of your closet, or even order anything online. The secret to looking French is in what you already own—and how you put it together.

Here are some tips for creating your own French-inspired look:

1. Pick one piece of jewelry (a necklace or bracelet) and wear it with everything else in your closet. It will instantly elevate your outfit and make you look more put-together than ever before!

2. Experiment with scarves! They’re great because they can be worn in different ways, depending on what kind of day you’re having—you can tie them around your neck casually during the summer months or wrap them around your hair when it’s cold out during wintertime!

3. A pair of jeans always goes a long way! Whether you choose skinny jeans or bootcut ones (or both!), they’re always going to be flattering on any body type—plus they’re super comfortable too!

4. Keep things simple. You can’t go wrong with a pair of crisp white jeans paired with a pretty floral blouse or light sweater (in any color). For shoes, stick with flats or kitten heels—these will help elongate your legs while keeping your feet comfortable all day long!

5. Wear black. It’s not just a color—it’s how you dress. You don’t have to go full-on goth (unless that’s your thing), but even if you’re wearing bright colors, make sure they’re paired with black accessories and shoes.

6. Makeup is also important when trying to emulate a French woman’s style. French women tend to wear minimal makeup—think nude lip gloss or nude lipstick and just a bit of mascara. If you want to go all-out on the makeup look, try applying bronzer and blush in complementary shades of pink or red and then dusting your cheeks with shimmery powder so they shine through.
