Turns Out You Only Need 5 Shoe Styles to Dress Like a French Girl

Allyson Payer

As our ongoing fascination with Carrie Bradshaw's style proves, we fashion girls love a vast shoe collection. But we also have an ongoing fascination with French-girl style, and according to our research, Parisian shoe collections are decidedly more pared down. Our research, in this case, consisted of doing a deep dive into our Instagram feeds to find out which shoe styles 10 out of 10 cool French girls have in their closet. We looked to the feet of Parisian It girls like Sabina Socol, Jeanne Damas, Anne-Laure Mais, Camille Rowe, and many more, and we successfully narrowed it down to just five styles that are essential to a French girl's look.

While current shoe trends include Lucite straps, embellishment, embroidery, and satin bows, the five-piece French-girl shoe collection is ultra classic in comparison. And their shoes of choice all ultimately contribute to the effortlessly chic aesthetic that French girls embody. So whether you're looking to pare down your shoe collection to just the essentials or add a few pairs to give your look more of a Parisian feel, read on to find out what the five essential French-girl shoe styles are and shop our picks for each!
