Another year has begun, and I’m still pining over French-girl style. Naturally, plenty of people have emulated and perfected the toned-down, timeless aesthetic over the years. Contrary to popular belief, French girls aren’t spending hundreds of dollars on clothing every month but instead buying select a few classic pieces from both trend-focused retailers and high-end brands to round out their closets. One of their favorite stores to shop at? Mango.
The Spanish retailer is known for its elegant selection of cool basics and elevated take on trends, making it a staple in French women’s wardrobes. Naturally, as a self-proclaimed wannabe French girl, I spend hours combing through Mango‘s new-arrivals section weekly. Below, all of the It girl–approved finds you’d be shocked to not see on the streets of Paris.
