Here are 8 simple, classic, versatile, and timeless outfits to recreate today. Most of these are probably even pieces you already have in your wardrobe.
Black Blazer + Denim + White Tee + Loafers
Always classic and versatile, is a black blazer which you will find in any French woman’s closet. Wear it with a simple white tee and straight leg denim. Add a black quilted bag for the ultimate chic look and pair with loafers when it’s warm and boots when it’s cold.
White Button Down + Flare Denim + Boots
A white button down in cotton or silk is the perfect top to wear with denim. Instantly polished and classic you can’t go wrong with this combination. Try a pair of flare denim to look extra Parisian but any pair will work.
Add your favorite boots and classic bag and you will look put together in minutes. This is one of those simple outfit combinations I like to wear, when I don’t know what to wear.
Tweed Jacket + Leather Pants + White Tee
For more of an elevated cool girl look wear a black tweed jacket with leather pants or jeans. The tweed jacket and sling backs help keep the outfit classy while the leather pants give off that French girl cool vibe. This is a favorite combination for French ladies at any age. Wear it with confidence and you too can have that je ne sais quoi attitude.
Black Blazer + Black Denim + Striped Tee
One of the most quintessential Parisian outfit combinations is a black blazer with a striped top and denim. If you wanted to be a bit more dressy you could always swap the denim out for a pair of trousers.
For footwear go with boots in the fall and winter and loafers or ballet flats in the spring and summer. This is one outfit combination that can be worn year round.
Navy Top + Black Denim + Black Booties
Nobody does navy and black better than Parisians in my opinion. It’s a color combination the French are used to wearing in any season. This combination is chic, elevated, and incredibly classy looking.
Wool Coat + Turtleneck + Denim + Converse
Casual and comfortable yet still classic is a sweater and sneaker combination. I specifically remember seeing a French lady wearing a very similar look last time I was in Paris.
Parisians love wearing sneakers these days but feel free to wear boots or another kind of sneaker with this combination.
Turtleneck + Midi Skirt + Tall Boots + Wool Hat
If you’re going for a looks that’s classy and polished try a midi skirt with a sweater and tall boots. During the cooler months accessorize with a wool hat and finish the look with a classic leather shoulder bag.
Plaid Blazer + Turtleneck + Flare Denim
One way to elevate your look with a blazer or jacket is by wearing a belt around the waist. The belt adds a bit of polish and edge to the otherwise classic outfit. This is one of my favorite ways to dress up my blazers for the ultimate french girl outfit.
