On the Street: French-Style Babes IRL

There’s nothing that brings me back to the good ol’ days like a street style post that isn’t filled with editors. There’s something about a real outfit that a person is wearing to actually do things in (unlike me at times) that is so refreshing and different than anything that’s staged. These days, it’s common for people to buy something to wear only for the ‘gram, but these outfits are tested and found to work for real life.

Here are some amazing Parisian-style outfits from Berkeley and San Francisco. Don’t beg, it’s unbecoming of a lady: I have all the links you need to recreate these looks.


The contrast button trend is sweeping the nation. Emma’s platform sneakers give this look a bit of attitude. She was so sweet though, and she’s from Ireland (because all girls can love French style — although she was surprised that that’s how I categorized her look).

Ash was cracking jokes the entire time. Luckily her style is just as effortless. You can never go wrong with mom shorts and a t-shirt, though Ash made this look trendier with a twist-front top.


I’m fairly certain this is the Reformation dress I tried on here. I actually saw Samira as I was leaving the Reformation store on Valencia (I had a hunch it might be a good spot for fashionista-catching — not creepy at all — but I couldn’t help but go in too). I forgot where Samira is from, but she’s not American. This post is turning into a commentary on girls with French vibes worldwide.

Reformation “Vivette Dress” $98
Urban Outfitters Out From Under “Lace Triangle Bralette” $20


This green is so striking. And I love how Kenna paired it with a long-sleeved top. Tassel loafers are not an obvious choice for wearing with a dress and that’s why I love this combination.

Largo Drive Faitfull the Brand “Gizele Midi Dress Linnea Dot Print” $179
Urban Outfitters Dr. Martens “Adrian Tassel Loafer” $130


Because a playsuit is both functional and fun. I’ve noticed that the kind of romper that you might have worn as a child is trending. This one looks like it is a genuine 90s romper, so I recommend thrifting for this item.

Urban Outfitters “UO Emma Floral Romper” $59
Saks Fifth Avenue Vince “Cabria Suede Ankle Boots” $395


Make sure to tie your tee then tuck it. These pants are also the kind I recommend thrifting (Urban Outfitters or Acne Studios are the only retailers/brands I see making these brand new).
