There are few things more fascinating than getting an insight into other people's shopping habits, and even more so when it's the shopping habits of French women. From Anne-Laure Mais Moreau and Camille Charièrre to Marta Cygan and Syana Laniyan, we can't get enough of these Gallic girls and their impeccable wardrobes. So when shopping app LiketoKnow.It told us it could give us the insider intel that revealed the 11 pieces flying off the shelves in France right now (according to its data), we were pretty excited.
Obviously, the list didn't disappoint, and there were plenty of cosy knits, cool ankle boots and classic blazers. But a few surprises are in the lineup. We're particularly enamoured with Mango's mint-green blazer, which we'd style with straight-leg jeans and Western boots. Also, H&M's oversized mohair-blend jumper is a serious steal considering how expensive it looks—just layer it over a maxi dress and knee-high boots for an autumn-ready weekend outfit. Together, all of these pieces act as a Parisian-approved capsule wardrobe. You're welcome.
Style Notes: This outfit formula is so simple yet so Parisian thanks to the green check vintage jacket and pearl-studded sandals.
Style Notes: A cord suit is extra lovely when rendered in burgundy. We like how Syana has styled hers with a pair of box-fresh Nike trainers.
Style Notes: Camille Charrière shows that some French clichés (aka Breton stripes) aren't so outmoded after all.
Style Notes: Ancient Greece gets a 2018 makeover via Loewe's tasselled midi skirt. We love the addition of orange accessories too.
