When it comes to personal style, I can never get enough of what French girls are wearing. It’s why I take every chance I get to ask them about their latest fashion finds and the pieces that they’re shopping at the moment—but what are the affordable brands they rely on, and what are some of their recent inexpensive finds sitting in their closets and shopping carts?
Curious to find out the affordable items loved by all of the cool French girls, I asked them to share them with me. With my proclivity for French-girl style, it’s perhaps unsurprising that I loved all of their picks. From the perfect sweaters for the season ahead to cool lingerie to the £32 bag that keeps selling out, these items have all landed on my personal shopping list. Ahead, shop the under-£100 fashion finds that you’ll be sure to spot on all the stylish Parisians this fall.
Sabina Socol’s edit includes pieces that hit on all of the end-of-summer trends leading into fall.
We love a good chunky camel knit for autumn. Also, this is part of H&M’s Conscious range, so it’s definitely worth a (small) splurge.
Checks are everywhere this season. I really recommend going to more high street stores for this kind of pieces. We don’t know how long the trend’s going to last, but it’s nice to give in and have fun with fashion without breaking the bank too.
I’ve talked about my love for playful accessories in my column here on WWW, so you know the drill. Here’s a cheap and fun way to elevate your style and stand out.
The cutest little bag of the summer. I’ve been trying to get my hands on it, but it was always sold out, so get it while you can. I saw the most stylish girls wearing it.
I love this brand, especially its scarves, which you can wear in multiple ways (I especially like to wear them in my hair.)
Not just for summer. I’ve been wearing this ever since I got it, and I get so many compliments. This is just one of the trends I’ve been loving these days.
Truly one of the best vintage selections I’ve seen on an online store. Good luck not spending hours there!
