Happy Bastille Day, ladies! In honor of our French friends across the sea, we’re bringing you some fabulous fashion from the land of fancy cheese and fantastic perfume. Who says you need Chanel or Dior to look like you should be smooching your sweetie by the Eiffel Tower? Here are some affordable pieces that are trés Parisian chic.
A true French fille would never be seen in anything garish. A chic white shirt with red boat stripes is totally wearable. Achieve that coveted je ne sais quoi by tucking it into cropped jeans and grabbing a pair of pretty sandals. Bonus points for rocking the colors of the French flag.
Artist Crop Jeans, $30 (on sale), ae.com
Looking for the perfect Parisian accessory? Try a classic quilted leather bag with a chain strap--an instant dash of posh for any outfit, and the very essence of trés chic, mon amie.
This adorable t-shirt is a fabulous edition to your closet, and its sweet French message (thank you very much) will keep you grinning. Tuck in the looser silhouette to a high waisted skirt, or throw on over cuffed khaki shorts and add a sweet charm necklace. Layer it over a tank for more coverage and extra flair. Ooh la la!
