鈥 iron

Step 1

1. Decide what your t-shirt is going to say and cut out the appropriate letters. We like 鈥渙h la la鈥 or 鈥渢res chic鈥 or 鈥渂onjour!鈥

2. Lay your letters on the tee with the felt side facing down. If you don鈥檛 feel super sure about where to place the letters, simply wear your tee and pin them while it鈥檚 on.

3. Cover your felt letters with a piece of cotton fabric and gently iron for a minute and a half.

4. Turn your tee inside-out and iron over the lettered area for another 20 seconds and let everything completely cool.

5. Now it鈥檚 time to peel off the backing from the letters. And just like that鈥 you鈥檙e done.


A simple phrase, a quote from your fave poet or 鈥淭his is my French girl shirt鈥 will do just fine. Find the required letters from the iron-on letter sheet and place them on the tee. Once you鈥檙e happy with the arrangement, iron those babies on using a piece of cotton fabric as a heat protector. Turn the tee inside out. Then iron the lettered area on the other side for another 20 seconds. Let everything cool. Peel off the backing and put on the tee.

Oh La La tee

Now that you have your snazzy new Parisian tee, you just need to find the perfect matching outfit.

French girl style is so chic and effortless, and the key word is simplicity. Also, worth noting 鈥 Parisian girls don鈥檛 wear tons of color: Neutrals are their best friend. So keep that in mind while choosing your outfit. We paired our fresh new tee with a classic blazer and a pair of dark jeans. Then we added a small black messenger bag, black heels and some gold accessories to complete the look.
