Go ahead. Tell a friend.

The Blazer Set

The sartorial cheat code to French-inspired chic is a tailored co-ord. Heavy enough to keep you warm but easy enough to whip off when the sun shows up, you'll get bonus points for adding minimalist sneakers and a structured bag.

The Biker Jacket

Another classic from those thousands of 'French style essentials' lists, but for great reason. Throw this rebellious layer atop a plain tee, a denim maxi and chunky loafers for a day strolling by the Seine (or Borough Market, whatever comes first).

The Blazer: Remixed

We're back to blazers. They go with everything, from your favourite love-worn denim to mini skirts. We love mixing them up with other classics - the white shirt, straight leg denim and pointed kitten heels.

The Trench

This wouldn't be a list of French girl style hacks without the lynchpin: a trench coat. A lightweight layer with a tailored look masquerading as casual too, if we had to make a choice, this outfit would be in our capsule wardrobe forever.
