If you’re a fan of simple and effortless French-girl style, then you’ve come to the right place. As someone who studies French style like it’s my job (well, it sort of is), I’m acutely aware of what they’re wearing this season and beyond. And as any good Francophile knows, their style is pretty seasonless. In other words, French people tend to be very picky with their wardrobe—they rely on a curated list of wardrobe staples and tend to wear them on repeat with various outfit combinations. It also means that they don’t cycle through their clothes as frequently.
Because of this observation, I’m pretty confident in stating that the French won’t ever toss certain staples. Things like blazers, vintage-inspired denim, and ballet flats are all on this list and—surprise—I found all of them on for you today. On a recent visit to an American standby, Nordstrom, I came across a trove of French-inspired wardrobe staples and they were too good not to share.
Behold—the ultimate Nordstrom shopping list if easy, effortless, and classic French style is what you’re after. Look no further than the below 29 items.
