Some may say the French-girl obsession has gone too far, but if you ask me, it hasn't gone far enough. Thanks to their effortless sense of style and unique outfit configurations, the obsession with them is one we aren't quite ready to quit. To no one's surprise, the French have mastered summer style before it's even started. Wearing everything from those milkmaid tops the fashion community can't stop talking about to easy-to-wear printed dresses, I decided it was time to do something about my wardrobe envy, stat!
While I would love to be able to afford the exact items some of my favourite Parisian It girls have been flaunting, I need to be practical with my purchases whether I like it or not. When I'm not shopping at Zara, I love a good H&M haul, and it just so happens the retailer has every key summer item I need to copy the French girls I so admire. Ahead, shop the items I'm stocking up on from H&M to achieve that je ne sais quoi.
Give me gingham—all the gingham! I love this print so much come the warmer weather, and no one wears it as well as the French if you ask me. Whatever gingham is available at H&M this season, I'll be buying it.
