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.
1. JUMPSUIT + ROLL-NECK + CHUNKY BOOTS
Style Notes: No one wears jumpsuits quite so cooly as Ellie. Her utility number with a black roll-neck layered underneath and tucked into boots is inspired.
3. TRENCH COAT + KNITTED DRESS + KNEE BOOTS
4. CARDIGAN + BELT + JEANS
Style Notes: Cardigans are an integral part of Jeanne's autumn wardrobe. Keep the heat in by cinching your waist with a simple belt.
7. COLLARED BLOUSE + KNITTED VEST + JEANS
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 autumn 2021 aesthetic.
8. CHECK BLAZER + RUFFLE SHIRT + SHORTS
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.
