We’re Taking Summer Dressing Lessons From These Stylish French Women

We love how these French women revisit classic pieces with an unexpected twist, always erring on the side of nonchalance …

A palette of muted beige and khaki with elegant, unfussy heels has major appeal when navigating warm weather dressing. We love Leia Sfez’s tonal, rosy blush swept across the lips and cheeks, too. 

Vintage-look white dresses are perfect for summer (shop an edit of our favourite styles here). We love how founder of Rouge and It girl Jeanne Damas elevates this slip-style dress with a pair of chic plimsoles.

Uplift classic polka dots with novel touches of denim and a popping red lip, for an exciting twist on a timeless summer fabric. 

The word on the streets of Paris? Capri pants are go! Read our fail-safe guide to wearing the trend here. 

Play with volume by layering a shirt dress with statement wide-leg cropped trousers, as seen on French style influencer Frann Fyne.

Bored of classic blue shirting? Try a version in beige or brown instead. It looks especially good paired with denim shorts and a bronzed, summer glow.

Head of PR at Dior Mathilde Favier reminds us that when the weather isn’t playing ball an ultra-feminine trench coat is an elegant option. To get the look, seek out a trench with a difference. Try a floral pattern or a unique colour and look to brands such as Ted Baker or, at the high end of the scale, Dries Van Noten. 

Embrace the season’s mini lengths by opting for a streamlined all-black look, it transforms a frilled hemline, as seen here, into something cool rather than anything too frou-frou. Do as the French do and pair yours with ballet flats for an effortless finishing touch.  

The French prove that you can embrace 70s summer styling without verging into costume territory. Opt for a nostalgic pair of high-waisted jeans with a leg length that’s not too cropped but is just right for wearing with ballet flats. 

Dressing up? Put a spin on summer co-ordinates by opting for a miniskirt and blouse combination, pair with ladylike shoes such as a T-bar style or patent Mary Janes.
