If you can’t hop on a plane to Paris with your bestie this summer (or to visit your bestie in Paris), gazing at pictures of stylish French girlfriends is the next best thing, non? Thanks to my dear friend Jenny Sundel of the Jesus Year Project who snapped these photos for us, we can all stare as long as we want (be sure to follow all of Jenny’s adventures in Paris and beyond here). Let’s kick things off with these Louis Vuitton-loving lovelies sporting perfectly imperfect chignons. I love how similar friends dress, but with their own twist. The girl on the right pairs her denim with a chic scarf, while her friend opts for a downtown plaid shirt and denim jacket. Whose look do you like best? Let’s play Paris Fashion Police, shall we?
More chignons! These friends both opt for billowy Hammer, er…harem pants and blazers – one short, one long.
Dita Von Teese, is that you? Spotted in the St. Germain, a Dita lookalike in a colorblock dress, oversized sunnies and flat sandals. Following closely behind, a woman dons a timeless white buttondown with a sweater draped over her shoulders, black cigarette pants and ballet flats.
These BFFs both sport skinny jeans and flowy tops. The girl on the left pairs hers with funky wedges and a small crossbody bag. Her friend on the right strolls in flats and carries a larger structured bag. Who styled skinny jeans and a flowy top best? You be the judge.
These besties both rock black bottoms and colorful tops. The girl on the left pairs her black jeans with a bright yellow top, tomboy tan oxfords, a man’s watch, and a messy bun on the top of her head. Her friend opts for a blue t-shirt, strappy gladiator sandals, a long necklace, a few casual bracelets and straight locks.
These Vespa besties are practically twins! The girl on the left dons a quilted black leather jacket, skinny jeans, ivory boots, a black bag and a white helmet. Her friend on the right rocks black boots, a tan bag and a black helmet.
Finally, my favorite pair! The lady on the left dons a classic below-the-knee black suit (Chanel, perhaps?) with a lavender blouse, a white hat, pointy black flats, black shoulder bag and black sunglasses. Her friend on the right, a below-the-knee eggplant dress, pointy black kitten heels, a camel hat and artfully draped jacket.
That was fun! Merci for playing along. Now, I’d love to know: Do you and your friends dress alike? Or are your styles worlds apart? Do you love French-girl fashion and Paris street style as much as I do?
Stay tuned for many more street style pics from Paris, Madrid and beyond! And a huge thank you to the Jesus Year Project for these photos. Be sure to check out her site for more fab photos. And by all means, hug your bestie today xx!
