5 styles that style-conscious French women are currently wearing
1. Cozy XXL wool scarves
Of course the French women are freezing too! But wearing a puffy down jacket? No chance. Luckily, there is a cozy statement accessory that the style icons can’t do without in autumn and winter: XXL scarves! They are as cozy as a blanket and immediately enhance any outfit. Even though French women usually like to avoid bright colors, the large scarves are even more popular. Popular? The thick wool scarves from the Scandinavian label Acne Studios.
2. Classic military blazer
Is the classic utility look a thing of the past? As a blazer, it is a true classic that comes primarily in muted colors such as khaki, olive green, beige or gray. But the French have also discovered modern versions of houndstooth over Vichy. The strict cut and the golden buttons give every look a certain sophistication.
3. Colorful retro stripes from the 70s
Since then, black and white stripes have been part of every French woman’s basic outfit. Now they get a special twist: because the 70s are back. With colorful retro bars! No matter whether as a sweater, dress or cardigan. The stripes really look great with a basic wardrobe and also keep you nice and warm.
4. Edgy pieces from the men’s department
The motto of French women? Stolen from a friend or the men in the family! It doesn’t matter whether it’s the oversized shirt, the top buttons of which remain open effortlessly, the voluminous jacket or the tie that becomes a casual fabric necklace. Of course you can also buy the individual parts yourself. The insider tip: When shopping, choose individual items such as leather jackets or coats one size larger. It seems casual – as if you weren’t trying to make a fashion statement with your look.
5. The checked coat
Sooner or later it’s the coat with a checked pattern that impresses. And, I promise, this it-piece is anything but small-minded. Long coats or short blazers and jackets with a square pattern are real style all-rounders that not only French women wear through autumn. In combination with dark trousers or sweaters in muted tones, they fit into any wardrobe. Particularly casual: pair with suit trousers or a fine turtleneck jumper. With a waist or tie belt, the trendy coats give the wearer even more waist. En vogue!
