What Is French Girl Spring Style

French girl Spring style consists of chic and timeless pieces in your wardrobe to carry you throughout the Spring season. These are pieces you can wear over and over and for many years to come. French women choose to invest in quality pieces that will keep them looking sophisticated and chic no matter the season. With these 10 pieces you can update your wardrobe to look like a French girl this Spring.

1. The Trench

The trench coat is such an iconic French classic throughout any Season but especially in the Spring. It’s such a basic way to update an outfit and you will see French women wearing them mostly during Spring and Fall.

I know this is the time I reach for my trench coat the most. The trench coat is also the perfect transition coat to wear between seasons as well because they are so versatile and will go with anything in your closet.

My favorite is the Sèzane Scott trench but Mango also has a nice selection of trench coats as well at affordable prices.

2. Button Down

One of the mainstays for French girl Spring style is a great-looking button-down. This top is so versatile and classic and goes with anything. You can wear it with your favorite denim for a more casual look, over a dress tied at the waist for a picnic look, and with any color of pants for a more polished look.

My favorite way to wear a button-down is with denim, flats, and a great-looking tote. Opt for a classic white button-down or go with an Oxford blue or even a blue and white stripe button-down. In Spring and Summer choose fabrics like light cotton or even linen.

Some of my favorite button-downs are this stripe from J.Crew, the Chlo from Sézane, white poplin from Alex Mill, and another classic from J.Crew.

3. Stripe Shirt

Another classic French girl Spring style is a striped shirt or marinière. Wear it under blazers, trench coats, denim jackets, and with straight-leg blue or white denim.

This is about as French as you can get and you can never go wrong with a stripe top of some sort throughout the season. My favorite stripe top is from Sézane but you can also find ones at J.Crew and Everlane throughout the season.

4. Sweater

Elegant and elevated, cashmere sweaters are a must for any French woman even during the spring season. They will wear sweaters with a mini skirt and sandals, straight leg denim and heeled mules, or even with trousers and a sneaker.

5. Straight Leg Denim

French women tend to go for straight-leg jeans over skinny and prefer a higher-waisted rise to help elongate the legs. Look for straight or flare-leg denim in dark blue or light blue. During Spring wear them with booties, sandals, slingbacks, or even sneakers.

6. Cardigan

The French love their knitwear even during the spring season to layer over silk camis.. You will see them wearing cropped, vintage, ribbed, and neutral cardigans.

French women consider knitwear one of the key French wardrobe-essentials. A popular cardigan is the Gaspard from Sézane, which I own in several colors as well.

7. Blazer

Nothing is more chic or polished than a blazer which is also incredibly versatile. A blazer is easy to throw a tee underneath and pair with a great pair of tailored pants and flats for a daytime look. At night, keep the same blazer on and change out the pants for jeans, a silk camisole, and heels and you have a perfect nighttime look.

During spring you can wear cotton or linen blazers in neutral colors with sandals or heels and a pair of denim for an easy yet polished French girl look.

8. Straw Bag

French market bags are a staple during the spring and summer seasons for any French woman. It’s one of these quintessential French things all French women own and they use them for farmer’s markets, vacationing in the south of France, and everyday use.

You can wear anything with a French market bag from dresses and skirts to jeans and shorts. My favorite market bag is from Sézane but I also love this one from J.Crew and the always classic Loewe bag.

9. Silk Scarf

An easy way to elevate any outfit is with a silk scarf which has been a French woman’s staple accessory for years, no matter the season. During spring wear a silk scarf with a trench coat or blazer and jeans. Go with lighter materials such as silk or cotton.


Sophisticated and elevated are two words to describe the French girl shoe, slingbacks, which are a must-have French shoe style to own. You can dress these up casual chic with trousers and a silk top. Or dress them down but still elevated with jeans and a blazer. Slingbacks are a classic shoe style that can be worn year-round.
