Looking for alternatives to french girl style but with the same level of cool? You’ve clicked on the right link!
There’s a reason these women command so much of our collective attention, and perhaps why including ‘French Girl’ in any story title is like stumbling upon a little pot of SEO gold.
The formula French ‘It’-girls subscribe to when getting dressed is unwaveringly simple— brogues and vintage jeans here, frilly wrap tops and basket bags there—which begets the question: how do they manage to make it all look so damn good?
Enough think pieces on the subject have been spawned to last us a lifetime (guilty as charged), and lest we forget there’s 4,415 cities outside of Paris that are filled with stylish inhabitants. Since we’ve all got places to be/people to see, we whittled that list down to a tidy 5 cities.
Now, kick back with a beverage of your choosing, and allow them to inspire today’s outfit.
Danish girls really have that whole ‘I didn’t choose my outfit, my outfit chose me’ thing on lock, don’t they? Effortless, cool and chic, we would not hate crawling into the wardrobe of every single girl below, where we’d take happily up residency for the rest of our days. Sophia Roe (@sophiaroe)

Call me the captain of this partisanship, but us Australian’s know how to throw together a look. We’re a fairly casual bunch, but when there’s an occasion (be it popping to Bondi Beach or flocking to MBFWA every year) we rise to it in our Sunday bests! Don’t believe me? See for yourself below!

Stockholm’s inhabitants really test my self control when it comes to not setting my wardrobe on fire and starting afresh, every single day. Now I am passing the curse (/blessing) over to you! Enjoy! Rebeka Breymas (@beccabreymas)
