Ahead, I’m sharing my findings. Just as their styles range, so do the pieces that made it onto their personal lists. With everything from Gucci’s Instagram-worthy crystal hair clips and tailored suiting to classic suiting and pieces straight from the Louis Vuitton runway, these are the French girl–approved investment pieces they have handpicked for their closets in 2019. Go on to see why each piece made the cut and shop them for yourself.

"I recently shopped this red patent leather Jimmy Choo bag. I’ve never had this kind of bag before, but when I found it, I wanted it immediately. Its shape and size fit me perfectly, especially when you want to give a rather vintage look. I find that it works with several types of styles (classic, colorful, casual). Personally, I wear it often with a total black look since I think it deserves to be the strong piece."
"This House of Holland suit is definitely on my list. The color is perfect for the spring. I often favor coordinated pieces with several cuts—when it's wide on the top, it should be tight on the bottom and vice versa."
"I build my wardrobe around signature pieces and try to stay away from seasonal fashion and invest in long-term fashion instead. I'd rather buy fewer but better. I am always looking for timeless styles. A good statement belt is a must. I like to accessorize a minimal outfit with my Medoru belt from Hermès."
