When it comes to fashion, few do it better than the french girl who embraces her natural beauty, dresses to look effortlessly chic and above all just wants to have a good time. Here’s why I’m obsessed with French Girl Style. 

In French Girl style philosophy, there’s the idea that every woman is a goddess, and all she needs to do in order to look great is to figure out what suits her. What clothing style suits her? What makeup looks suit her? Once you figure that out, stick to those styles.

When it comes to wardrobe, French Girls are committed to quantity over quality. They buy key capsule wardrobe staples, that are on the expensive side, and build those up over years into their dream capsule wardrobe. Building a capsule wardrobe is great for the environment, but it’s also a great way to look good. Part of why French Girls look great most of the time is because they’re wearing expensive clothing. Quality always shows—there’s no hiding cheap clothing!

French girls on the whole have an obsession with timeless styles. If you’re going to build up a capsule wardrobe over years, it doesn’t make sense to buy trendy pieces which will go out of style and look dated a few years later. Plus, timeless style is the best—it’s elegant and looks chic on basically everyone.

Finally, French Girls get dressed with the aim of having their final look appear effortless. Make your makeup look effortless, make your hair look effortless. If you have a dramatic makeup look, then balance that out by letting your hair look a little messy. Or if you have an elaborate outfit, then have a more muted makeup look. The aim isn’t to look like a doll; it’s to look like a beautiful woman in the swing of living her best life.

To summarize, you know you’re into French Girl style when you enhance your natural beauty, you buy capsule wardrobe pieces that are high quality and timeless in their style, and your look has an effortless flair.
