Inside a French Girl’s Wardrobe

A carefree attitude about clothes, love for vintage pieces and messy bedhead hair – achieving the iconic French woman style has been the pursuit of women for ages.
Thankfully, British Vogue has come up with this brilliant idea of revealing the mystique of the evasive French style secret by delving right into the heart of their wardrobes! The publication has started off the series “Inside the Wardrobe – How to Dress Like a French Woman” by paying visits to contemporary style icons like Caroline de Maigret and model Camille Rowe. With Josephine de la Baume being my absolute favorite, I have decided to try tracking down pieces that would perfectly emulate her covetable style and enviable insouciance.
Let’s start with those jackets, shall we?

Danish stylist/ blogger Pernille Teisbaek is one of my personal favourite bloggers; I love her real-girl practicality and how she has a knack for creating cool outfits with a few classic pieces like shirts, denim and sneakers (I have a Pinterest board dedicated to her enduring style).
This Roskilde Festival she teamed up with H&M to style one dress in four ways. To recreate her ensembles head to H&M for these pieces-

Since you can never have too many shoes in your wardrobe, the lace-up flats/ heels should probably be the next style you eye on. A definite outfit transformation from plain to polished.

Chiara Ferragni

I first came across Delfina Delettrez‘s designs when Chiara Ferragni (of The Blonde Salad) started wearing the label’s unique “eye” earring; and I thought they were distinct and pretty unique even on its own.
“I like to play the alchemist,” says fourth generation Fendi and jeweller Delfina Delettrez of her design process.

Since the inception of her brand in 2007, she has developed a signature perspective using a wide material vocabulary, manifested in her original use of figurative surrealism and natural iconography including hands, eyes, bees, and lips.
Delettrez’s designs are hyper-modern, but still hand-made in her Roman atelier. She has one store in Rome, located on via del Governo Vecchio.
You can shop her designs at LUISAVIAROMAMATCHESFASHION and FARFETCH.
