Why We’re Obsessed with the French Girl Aesthetic

- Advertisement -

Let’s talk about the French girl style for a moment. We all know they have a knack for dressing impeccably and making it look oh-so-effortlessly. The French girl look is ever-evolving, but it does keep its core roots. The idea of simplicity, timeless basics, and the icon pieces, and there is nothing more iconic than the tweed jacket.

Tweed jackets effortlessly add a touch of sophistication and are the epitome of French girl style. After all Coco Chanel made the boucle tweed jacket a fashion icon. Though few may be lucky enough to have one hanging in their wardrobe, most of us are hitting the high street in search of that classic Chanel-style aesthetic. For me, Mango takes the lead, with plenty of options that hit the Chanel spot. Elsewhere, H&M‘s black and white take on the classic is another easy-to-wear option that nails the brief.

A style that’s stood the test of time – the original dates back to the 1950s. This jacket style will withstand numerous wardrobe cycles. Whatever your budget may be, look out for quality fabrics in shades that will pair with plenty of pieces already in your closet to ensure maximum wearability.


@Mango is absolutely killing it with the tweed cardigans/jackets at the moment 🫶🏻🖤✨ Such a simple way to elevate your everyday outfit or dress up for a special occasion, A true timeless piece 💫 #styleshop #mango #mangooutfits

For a 2024 vibe, pair your tweed jacket with wide-leg jeans and a long-sleeved white top for a more contemporary take.

Or opt for the full tweed aesthetic and consider the matching mini skirt and tweed jacket combo. Team the look with Mary janes for a 2024 look.

For a cool Parisian vibe pair it with your satin slip skirt or dress for the ultimate contrast in fabric clash.

To help you get started here are my top 5 high street Chanel inspired jackets.
