French Girls Admit They Love This Winter Outfit Combination

If you were to hit the streets of Paris during the winter, what, exactly, is the outfit combination you’d be sure to see? Curious, I asked Parisian and Who What Wear contributor Sabina Socol to weigh in and pinpoint the ultimate French-girl winter outfit. “I love furry, vintage-looking coats,” she admitted. “You see so many of them wandering the streets of Paris. They pair perfectly with a simple outfit. Wear one with a T-shirt, jeans, and boots.” Yes, it turns out this is exactly how to pull off cool Parisian style once the temperatures start to dip.

Not only did I uncover photos of Socol wearing this winter look but countless other stylish French girls. Ahead, see how French girls style the go-to winter outfit formula and shop pieces inspired by their looks. So, whether you hop on a plane to Paris or don’t leave home, you too can master French-girl style.
