The French truly are in a sartorial league all their own thanks to their effortless yet sophisticated style. So it’s no surprise that we consistently turn to this fashion-forward set for tricks on how to obtain their je ne sais quoi. For the latest tips, Aïda Sané of the lifestyle blog BasicsTouch.com spills which trends to keep and store to ultimately master French girl style in 2019. Keep scrolling for shopping inspiration that will make us all one step closer to passing for Parisian.
Keep: Oversized Outerwear Store: Cape Coat
“I remember having a cape from ASOS, and although it was really cute, I ended up selling it because it wasn’t that easy to wear, so I replaced it with an oversized coat that I wear every single day.”
Brit + Co Pick: Mango Unstructured Virgin Wool Coat ($150)
Keep: Mom Jeans Store: Skinny Jeans
“I know skinnies have been here for years. In fact, I actually own a few pairs, but I have never been a huge fan. High-waisted mom jeans are popular right now and I love them because they are great for my shape (small waist and a larger butt). Plus, they’re more elegant in my opinion and are way more comfortable than skinny options.”
Brit + Co Pick: Levi’s Premium Wedgie Straight Jeans ($98)
Keep: Baker Boy Hats Store: Bucket Hats
“I feel like bucket hats are trying to come back like the fanny bag (which I love), but it’s still a no for me. I’m a big hat fan in general, so I wear baker boy hats or beanies. I rarely go out without something on my head.”
Brit + Co Pick: BP. Chenille Baker Boy Cap ($17)
