There's no doubt about it: French fashion types know how to do autumn style. Yes, here in the UK, we're no strangers to the odd layering trick or two. However, Gallic girls have managed to perfect the art of staying warm without being encumbered by lumpy layers. For influencers such as Slip Into Style's Ellie and Anne Laure Mais, knitwear is key, and luckily, this season has plenty to offer in this area with everything from skirts to dresses and, of course, sweaters, rendered in fine knit.
We're also seeing some excellent accessory action from the Parisians, with chunky knee boots proving to be the footwear of note this autumn. Scroll down to see the French-girl autumn outfits we can't get enough of this year. Plus, shop any pieces you might need to re-create the flawless looks for yourself.
Style Notes: With denim originating in France, it's no surprise that our gallic friends know exactly how to style it. Both jeans and denim jackets are wardrobe staples, so combining the two with a relaxed trainer is an easy way to add a directional feel to staples.
Style Notes: Knitted vests are still going to be a key investment for autumn. Pair yours with other standout wardrobe staples, such as a collared blouse and flare jeans, to truly subscribe to the French aesthetic.
Style Notes: So many French women own checked blazers, making them a must if you want to emulate their immaculate style. We love how Camille has styled hers with a ruffled blouse and shorts for a romantic spin.
