We scoured all our favorite French-girl Insta accounts and did some digging. The one thing we observed is that Gallic girls are certainly not leaning into sloppy sweats. In fact, they're sticking to their effortlessly-chic aesthetic as normal, but with a slightly more casual twist—relying heavily on classic and elevated basics such as oversize button-down shirts, sleek and comfy knit tops (and yes, they're still wearing jeans). If you want to emulate their casual-chic aesthetic, scroll below as we share the pieces French girls are wearing at home right now.
No French wardrobe could possibly be complete without a relaxed button-down shirt. And throughout quarantine, it's been one of the most popular pieces we've seen Gallic girls wearing on repeat. It's easy to see why—they're effortlessly chic and add a relaxed polish to every ensemble.
While we may be living in our leggings, French girls remain faithful to their jeans—even in the comfort of their own home. It's an easy and casual option that pairs perfectly with their button-downs, cropped cardigans, and tees. Opt for a relaxed, straight-leg fit.
Rather than sporting gym clothes all day every day, the French prefer comfortable yet elevated basics. Aside from jeans, we've spotted French girls in, relaxed wide-leg trousers and stretchy split-hem pants are popular since they're casual yet polished.
When it comes to footwear, sophisticated, easy-to-wear flats such as ballet flats and leather loafers are the most loved options. We've also seen cool retro sneakers adding a laid-back touch to French-girl basics.
Bypass the old, baggy sleep shirt and choose a fancy nightgown-dress hybrid instead. The vintage-inspired sleepwear trend has been on the rise, and French girls have been seen in their beloved luxury nightgowns as quarantine continues.
Along with classic button-downs, tanks and tees, pretty billowy blouses are prevalent in a French girls' at-home closets. You'll see plenty of vintage-inspired details such as lace collars and puff sleeves that are comfortable and non-restrictive.
Sophisticated basics are the name of the game when it comes to French-girl stay-at-home style. Chic tank tops with elevated details such as a high neckline and ribbed knit fabric are prevalent right now.
The French care just as much about what's under their clothes as the clothes themselves—no matter where they are. We can all agree that they do lingerie really well, and they're certainly not neglecting their pretty and comfortable lace matching sets at home right now.
As the temps start to rise, high-waisted denim shorts are coming into rotation as a welcome alternative to jeans. Paired with a cropped cardigan or casual blouse, the look exudes a laid-back yet pulled-together vibe.
