The French Way To Get Dressed


It’s no secret that we’re enamored with French women. Whether they’re toting around freshly baked baguettes at the weekend market or dashing to work in chic little numbers, their laid-back uniform of wear-forever staples (think sexy jeans, tailored jackets and sublimely broken-in button-downs, all worn with a certain je ne sais quoi attitude) hints at a well-considered lifestyle that’s inspiring, to say the least. As a little homage to our favorite Parisians, here are 13 très chic ways to wear the pieces we love the most, from a fresh take on the pantsuit to leather motorcycle jackets, sheer blouses and stackable jewelry. (Accent not required, but certainly encouraged.)

P.S. Remind you of a certain fashionable French editor? Good eye. We think she’s great too.
