What Parisians are Wearing Now

There's plenty of talk about the French girl. You know the type: the kind of woman whose hair is the right amount of tousled, pulls off a red lip for every occasion and regularly wears what looks like a men's shirt. You could say she has that “je ne sais quoi". The good news, her style is relatively easy to recreate. Not convinced? Here's four of our current outfit obsessions, straight from the streets of Paris. All you have to do now is pick one (or two) and add the RI version to your basket…

A Laissez-Faire Approach

First thing's first: French girls never look like they're trying too hard. Their outfits are simple and usually made up of some combination of wardrobe essentials. Take this one for example: it shows off great denim, the perfect trench, a crisp t-shirt and kitten heels. Simple, but far from boring. Accessorise with a classic black bag, oversized sunglasses and a black coffee to-go. Voilà!

Colour Combinations

If there's one thing that the French know how to do, it's how to make a good pairing. From the perfect cheese and wine combination to colour palettes that just work, they really are the experts. Who would have ever thought to combine brown, navy and lemon yellow? They did, and now you will too.

Bouclé Beauties

It doesn't get any more stereotypical than a boucle jacket. Made famous by French icon, Coco Chanel, this now-timeless jacket gives an instant Parisian feel to every outfit. This season, the Parisians are wearing theirs with black trousers, pumps, cross-body bags and oversized sunglasses. We told you: the French never overcomplicate things.

Get in Line

It would be wrong not to mention the Breton stripe: as classically French as a croissant, some would say. To keep things on the casual side, Parisians are pairing their striped knits with relaxed denim and pumps. But don't be surprised if you see them sporting this exact knit with a silk skirt and heels. Très jolie.
