French-Girl
Looks That
Get Fall Right

The French greet la rentrée—the vibrant turn of season when city-dwellers return from summer holiday and open signs reappear in shop windows—as they do everything else: with a good face oil, that signature esprit, and an effortless wardrobe.

  2. Fall Florals

    Pair a moody floral midlength dress with pointed Mary Jane flats for a look that celebrates fall as elegantly as the French do (and looks equally chic with sneakers or knee-high boots).

  2. French Rolls

    A neutral turtleneck knit adheres to the following rules of dressing: It’s flattering, it’s minimal, and it’s easily layered under all the blazers, sweaters, and jumpsuits in your existing wardrobe.

  2. THE CLASSICS

    When in doubt, consult the classics: a slim sweater in graphic stripes, go-anywhere black trousers, and trend-defying suede boots with a little elevation. Finish with the French…no, every girl’s secret weapon: a belted trench.

  2. LEATHER

    An A-line leather skirt is an elevated alternative to wide-leg trousers—the fit is feminine, but the material is strong and sexy, with a hint of masculine energy that plays well with everything from blazers to turtlenecks and tees.
