How to Get the French Girl Look for Under $30

How to Get the French Girl Look for Under $30

Très chic and totally affordable. 

By Jessie Sardina

I hate to admit it, but I am a total sucker for anything "French girl." I dream of wine-stained lips and hand-me-down Chloe bags and buttery croissants. I recently sauntered into my hairstylist’s chair and demanded a French-girl fringe. I regularly purchase baguettes simply because I love the look of them peeking from my grocery tote as I stroll home. I once even purchased a $74 lip balm that actually turned out to be rose scented petroleum jelly just because Jeanne Damas said she used it on her perfect pout. Yeah, I’m committed.

As the original poster children of “I woke up like this” swagger (sorry Bey), I’m in constant pursuit of that perfect careless je ne sais quois that it-girl influencers like Garance Dore and the aforementioned Damas have turned into a lifestyle. While I’m fully aware the term has morphed into an aspirational buzzword, I can’t deny that the idea of flawlessly rumpled hair and rocking your boyfriend’s blazer is my definition of #stylegoals. 

The easiest way to infuse a little Parisian elan in your life? Berets, of course. And this season’s fall collections unleashed a bounty of these classic toppers that have the ability to take any look from simple to super chic. Plus, clocking in at under $30, this is one accessory that will leave more money for your “visit the Eiffel Tower” fund.
