The French Girl Wardrobe List

If you’ve ever wanted to emulate the cool and effortless style of French women, I’ve got news for you.

It’s easy! Dressing like a French woman is more of an attitude and less about what you wear.

However, it is helpful to limit yourself in a way. Imagine, instead of spending money on “trendy” styles that will go out next year – you have a wardrobe that is timeless.

With this wardrobe, nothing is “uncool”. It’s a cool – because it’s sooo easy!

Getting The Right Mindset

Before you dress the part, act the part. My drama professor was adamant about this. Before we got into the fun stuff like dressing up, we had to embrace the right kind of attitude and characteristic.

The French woman mindset is never about being complicated. Clothes are not to be worn to complicate things, but instead, compliment. Haven spoken to many of my French relatives, the key takeaways I got from them growing up was that what you wore didn’t matter as much as how you wore it.

If you didn’t feel confident, you would not look confident. If you did not feel sexy, you would not look it.

It really isn’t about what you wear, which is why you’ll never find the French woman’s closet over flowing with things she has bought on a whim. The French woman knows that essentials and basics for an elegant wardrobe will do just fine.

The French woman doesn’t need trends. She is timeless and makes everything ooze with personality even if someone else is waring the same thing. Someone who only relies on trends however, we be just that – trendy (something that will change season after season)

Trends fade. Style remains.

Focus on these Categories & Essentials

The easiest way to transform your closet into a French one is by thinking in categories and essentials.

The French woman curates a capsule wardrobe with only a few different pieces here and there for special events like weddings, banquets, etc.

The categories are divided in this way:

1. Outerwear

2. Tops

3. Bottoms

4. Dresses

5. Shoes

6. Accessories

 

When curating a French inspired wardrobe, these are the categories to have 3-7 pieces in for a minimalist wardrobe. For the rest of us who absolutely adore clothes 7-10 is a more accurate figure.

The point of keeping it so is to encourage rewearing of clothes, not spending on trends, and really allowing yourself to show your personality in multiple ways that still allow you to look put together. In fact, it does not even take that much effort.

  • “If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need” - Marcus Cicero
-
I have a bigger library than I do a garden but I want them to be even bigger! 📚💐 Ever since becoming ill, I have learned to appreciate things which other people sometimes take for granted: holding and reading a book or simply walking through a garden and seeing nature at its work.
-
These things may be gone to us one day. We need to cherish the little jewels of life. This belief is the meaning behind “Petite Bijou” which translates from french into “little jewel”

So tell me, what is your Petite Bijou of life? 💕

The last time I saw my family in France was 12 years ago & I remember thinking how fabulous my aunt and all her friends looked. They were timeless, elegant, and carefree. It was 50% of what they wore and 50% of how they wore it that really left an impression on me.

French style is so distinct yet so simple! You don't need a big or expensive wardrobe to recreate it and I'm sharing how in today's post.
