What All the Cool French Girls Are Wearing on Instagram, in 6 Perfect Outfits

There's no doubt about it: French girls know how to do autumn style. Yes, here in the UK we're no stranger 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 Sabina Socol and Camille Charrière, knitwear is key, and luckily this season has plenty to offer in this area, with everything from skirts to dresses being rendered in fine knit. We're also seeing some excellent accessory action from the Parisians, with The Row, The Volon and Gucci all offering cute mini totes that deserve just as much airtime as the rest of the outfit. Scroll down to see the French girl autumn outfits we can't get enough of this October, plus shop the looks.

A white polo-neck has got to be one of this season's most versatile staples. Anne-Laure styles hers with a pair of heritage-check trousers and a Burberry mini bag. 

A knitted skirt makes for a cosy yet cool pairing for a Fair Isle jumper. Make like Camille Charriere and accessorise with knee-high boots and a silken tote.

A blazer, kick-flare jeans and ankle boots are a quintessential Jeanne Damas outfit, and it's a formula we'll definitely be re-creating this season. The Volon bag is such a winner too.

Everyone has been obsessed with this cream coat from Mango's Committed Collection. We like how Sabina Socol has kept hers open to reveal a knitted minidress and belt bag beneath.

This is how to do leopard print for autumn. ASOS's V-neck knit looks so expensive with a midi skirt and belt bag, as seen on Syana Laniyan

Trust Ellie from Slip Into Style to manage to wear Nanushka's leather maxi dress without looking like Neo from The Matrix. Her vintage-inspired mock-croc tote bag is a great addition.

A classic checked coat feels contemporary when rendered in a dramatic oversized silhouette and accessorised with chunky trainers. This autumn is all about high-low styling.
