Oversized, mannish tailoring may be a more recent addition to the French fashion girl repertoire, but that doesn't make it any less relevant. The perfect way to add a cool update to more classic denim and ballet flats, channel classic labels like (old) Celine and Saint Laurent to get the look.
If you thought the pump had had its day, think again – classic, comfortable and practical, French girls know it's the chic alternative to trainers that will always be in style. Our advice for putting a cool spin on the look? Invest in a pair with unmistakable designer tropes – Chloe's scalloped version gets our vote.
Straight Leg Denim
Once upon a time it would have been skinny jeans on this list, but a contemporary crop of stylish Parisians have confirmed straight leg as the new denim style of choice. Think Camille Charriere and you'll get the picture – perfect with oversized trenches and feminine slingbacks.
It's time to eschew the traditional, fitted trench in favour of more androgynous styles – play with oversized structures to balance out proportions. Tie-waist versions have particular French girl appeal, but if you still fancy a more classic, Burberry-inspired design, we recommend sizing up to get the look.
