Just like many other fashion people, I have spent a good chunk of my time daydreaming about Paris. There is just something about the idea of running around the City of Love with a baguette in hand—taking in some of the most beautiful and historic architecture the world has to offer and walking side by side with well-dressed people running from the Louvre to a chic cafe—that I have completely fallen in love with.
Unfortunately for me, my dreams of galavanting around the Eiffel Tower are still just dreams since I have yet to travel to Paris, but one way that I get to live out my Parisian fantasy is by taking notes from some of my favorite French fashion people when it comes to my wardrobe. I have been wanting to achieve a French-girl summer vibe for a long time, and this summer, I have decided it’s time. After scouring the Instagram and TikTok accounts of some of the stylish Parisian people I have on my mood board, I have found five chic items that will help me get the Parisian-approved look I’m going for. Simple dresses, cat-eye sunglasses, headscarves, chic tailored denim, and linen pants are what I would call Parisian summer style essentials.
I’ve rounded up some items from some of my go-to retailers to help me get all five of these pieces in my closet. Keep scrolling to see what I’m shopping for a French-girl summer.
