French and Australian Girls Have More in Common Than You Think
It's easy to get why the world would admire French women. Who wouldn't like to live a fabulous life not wearing makeup while having the perfect complexion, or eating pastries for breakfast while still maintaining a petite figure? It's also clear that French women have set the bar high when it comes to groundbreaking style. Even in something as simple as a pair of vintage jeans and with a swipe of Rouge Coco on their pouts they still look exceptional with little to no effort involved.
On the other side of the globe and fashion spectrum is our island home Australia, and we Australian girls have been typically known for our casual, more laid-back style. We can't go past our local labels, such as One Teaspoon for denim, and Bassike for well, basics, and our style suits the lifestyle we have, which makes sense. Interesting but true: Despite all of the the above, our Australian It girls have more in common with French girls than you'd think. We've tapped into all the commonalities in cross-continental street styles that have ultimately shaped the looks most enjoyed by both countries.

Jeanne Damas and Eleanor Pendleton
Both girls know the strength and beauty of the classics; relying on denim jeans, pendant necklaces, and basic tops. Less really is more. Universally, these pieces are timeless that women of all ages can embody. Not to mention they both have long wispy fringes that frame their glowing complexions, so it's not just style they have in common but beauty trends as well.

If anyone can teach us a lesson about layering, it's either of these two beauties. The girls prove that layering is a trend that can be worn throughout the seasons. They are regularly pictured at fashion week events wearing unexpected combinations, setting trends within trends, and constantly reinventing new looks through layering.

We know technically Georgia is a Kiwi girl but for stylish purposes, we are counting her in this equation. Besides both girls having the same chic haircuts, and they both know the power of printed suits. The ultimate combination of femininity and masculinity, checks or polka dots, anything goes. It's easy to become complacent when wearing suits and it all comes down to forever being a stylish option. No matter what age, this ensemble serves any wardrobe well.
Clémence Poésy and Chloe Hill
Never afraid of colour, print, or era, it's hard to miss either girl within a crowd when pictured for street style. That all comes down to always wearing the brightest of outfits and almost always wearing something that's vintage. Whenever our wardrobes start looking very monochrome and we need to inject some colour, it's these two that we turn to for inspiration.
