French style has become revered for its effortlessly elegant look from head to toe. The style can be described as minimal and neutral, yet versatile and stylish. Comfort always takes priority. Surprisingly, there are actually only a few items that every French girl relies on in her closet. Here are some of our favorites. They can be easily mixed and matched to achieve the most parfait look!

And don't forget to check out our French department for even more inspiration!

Silk Scarf

The silk scarf has been a symbol of style since the 1930s. It can be worn in so many ways, either around your neck, as an accessory on your bag or in your hair!

La Marinière Top

The very French marinière top is a really cute and versatile item to add to your closet, giving your look a casual Frenchy vibe.

Structured Blazer

This item is in every chic French girl's wardrobe. It's not just for formal settings; match it with a t-shirt underneath and a pair of jeans for an easy, elegant look.

Flats

This is a very classic and easy to wear shoe that won't take too much attention away from the rest of your outfit. Parisian girls wear flats all year round, weather permitting of course.

Trench Coat

The trench coat will be your best friend in spring and early winter. Throw it on for an instant upgrade, and feel free to stray from the classic beige color.

Black Leather Bag

A leather bag is elegant, practical and convenient. It never goes out of style and you can wear it every day of the year. A must have!

Straight Leg Jeans

You won't often find a French woman in skinny, tight clothing and jeans are no exception. Straight leg jeans are the popular choice, preferably a pair of Levi's 501s. They're comfortable and casual, and flatter in all the right ways. Luckily we have found a variety of cheaper alternatives!

Con-GRAD-ulations, you've finally made it! All those late-night study sessions, early morning classes, and marathons at the library have finally paid off and it's time put on that cap and gown. The dress code for a commencement ceremony is definitely a lot different from typical student attire (which probably consists of more sweatpants and sneakers than you'd like to admit), so coming up with the right outfit to wear for your big day might be a bit of a challenge. If you're debating on what to wear, we've got you with this round-up of 8 graduation outfits that capture 4 different styles you can wear to properly celebrate finishing school!

Fancy Looks

Win graduation with these fancier looks! This red dress not only goes well with a graduation gown, but will also make you a standout with its gorgeous arm detailing. You'll also be turning some heads with this black dress, thanks to the added white sash that accents and flatters the waist.

Classy Looks

These two outfits are definitely keepin' it classy without overdoing it. White is definitely a graduation go-to, but cute lacy patterns will definitely keep you standing out in the crowd. You can also never go wrong with florals, like this sleeveless dress that is as cute as it is stylish. Pair with some accessories and comfortable (but still dressy!) shoes, and you're all set.

Mature Looks

Planning on a less traditional look that doesn't involve a skirt or dress? A cute yet comfortable two-piece suit might do the trick, like this G.Shero set. Or, go smart casual with a sleeveless blouse and straight trousers. Finish it off with a pair of cute flats for maximum comfort, or your favorite heels.

Girly Looks

Want to pull off something on the girlier side? Go bohemian chic with this light and flowy dress that will add some playful patterns under your grad gown. Or, opt for this gorgeous bell-sleeve dress. Both these outfits go great with chunkier or lower heels, which will be a lot more comfortable than most other fancy shoes (your feet will thank you!).

It can be difficult to put together a nice outfit for work when it's hot and humid outside. We recommend stocking up your wardrobe with these 100% work-appropriate items and you will never be out of ideas for what to wear everyday! It'll save you time in the morning, too.

Wide Legged Trousers

Tight pants are not your friend during the summer. Wide legged trousers are super comfy and keep you cool while not showing too much of your skin.

Long Shirt Dress

This fashionable, yet formal dress will carry you through the summer. Just slip it on, throw on some nice shoes and you're ready to go!

V-Neck Jumpsuit

Three words: onesies for grown-ups! You can layer a t-shirt inside, or quickly throw on a blazer and your outfit will be ready for your next big meeting.

Off-Shoulder Blouse

They show just the right amount of skin, and you can keep it on for your hot date right after work!

Formal Shorts

If shorts are allowed in your office, then don't be afraid to wear a conservative option that flatters your figure but doesn't reveal too much.

Blazer

A blazer can make a lot of your non-work clothing ready for the office! Just style a structured blazer on top, and you'll be grateful that you have it when the AC is blasting all day inside.

High-Heeled Sandals

The heel is high enough to demand respect, but not so high that your feet will hurt. Sounds pretty great to us!

Midi Dress/Skirt

The length of a midi dress or skirt allows you to wear it all year round! Choose a fun pattern if you dare, and you'll find that you've brightened up an otherwise drab office space.

It is not a coincidence that Scandinavian fashion has become increasingly popular in recent years. The style is simple, and stick to to the rule that "less is more". You don't need to have a huge wardrobe to nail the look; keep it smart and start with the colors black, white, grey and beige. Here are four quintessential outfits to give you some Scandi inspiration!

The LBD is an absolute must have for every Scandinavian girl. It is stylish, elegant and a perfect item for different outfit combinations. Try styling it with a t-shirt like in the images above, and you'll have a go to outfit when you want to look elegant but still keep it casual. Match it with your favorite gold accessories.

This outfit is typically Scandinavian because it is minimal, does not have too many colors but is not without style. This is an outfit you could wear for many different occasions; it's suitable for work, brunch or a date! It might not seemed too detailed at first, but the black and white checkered pattern gives it an edge that won't go unnoticed. Don't forget to add a pair of big earrings and your look is going to be on fleek.

A very simple outfit does not have to look boring. This outfit is composed of only two garments, the basic black tank top and the skirt everyone is wearing this summer. The best thing about Scandinavian style is that with the right accessories you can turn any plain outfit into the perfect one. Just add a cute mini bag to this outfit to spice it up a little. A suede or leather bag is always a good idea to complete your look.

Combining denim and white is an easy Scandinavian style trick to give life to an outfit without too much effort. Comfort and elegance are two essential elements for every Scandinavian look, as shown in the outfit above. And it goes without saying that every Scandinavian girl owns a pair of white sneakers.
