7 Chic Ways French Women Wear a Basic T-Shirt

7 Chic Ways French Women Wear a Basic T-Shirt

If you think about it, the pillars of the average French woman’s wardrobe are basics. You’ve got jeans, blazers, ankle boots, cardigans, midi dresses, miniskirts, and of course, T-shirts. French women are not sloppy dressers by nature, so you won’t see most of them throwing on a baggy T-shirt, leggings, and flip-flops and calling it a day. Their T-shirt outfits are simple, but you can tell some thought went into them.

I don’t know about you, but pretty much all I want to wear lately are T-shirts, and I’m in need of some fresh inspiration. So I scrolled through Instagram for a good 75 minutes (yep) and found seven T-shirt outfits that I’ve spotted on repeat on French women. Keep scrolling to shop the easy pieces needed to recreate them for yourself.

Aside from the fact that pleated skirts are back, in general, this outfit is something fun and different to add into your T-shirt outfit rotation.

This outfit is filled with so many trends (oversized blazer, long shorts, sporty sandals, chain necklace) yet it still looks so classic.

If you need a break from wearing jeans, wide-leg trousers are a great, summer-friendly alternative. Any shoe style will work here, but trainers are great for obvious comfort-related reasons.

All of these outfits are great, but this is probably the one I’ll wear the most this summer. The shorts are the perfect length, the T-shirt is the perfect amount of slouchy, and the accessories are the perfect amount of elevated.

This outfit may not be groundbreaking but French girls love it and it works every time.

This combination of pieces proves that a trench coat need not be boring. When paired with the distressed jeans and cool accessories, it’s anything but.

The French love their blazers and jeans. To make it a bit more fun, wear them with a concert tee and statement boots.
