How French Girls Really Dress, According to a Parisian

If your wardrobe hasn't yet been introduced to Sézane, then let us have the pleasure of kick-starting a very fruitful fashion relationship. Morgane Sezalory is the 30-year-old genius behind what is essentially France's first-ever online fashion brand. She may now count a recently opened store in the heart of Paris as a major milestone, but Morgane is credited with jettisoning her country's e-commerce world into the here and now.

Her cool and casual wares—imagine the kind of pieces that are based around the pillars of Parisian style but shifted into slightly more adventurous territory—have been creeping into Europeans' wardrobes subtly but quickly since launching in 2013. If you have noticed an Instagram star wearing a particularly fetching Breton top, a natty suede jacket or a perfect-fit pair of jeans but not been able to tell where they bought them from, you can bet your last euro that it's Sézane. 

The label is finally shipping to UK shores, and so to celebrate this and the first day of Paris Fashion Week—where no doubt a savvy lot will be decked out in Sézane—we caught up with Morgane to discover how to find that je ne sais quoi in your own closet. Scroll down to find out how French girls really dress today, and shop the pieces to pay homage to them…
