French Style Mar 11, 2022 A French Girl “Doesn’t Understand” These Spring Trends (But Loves These 5) by Bobby Schuessler Simply put, French-girl style is where it’s at.For many (myself included), that “je ne sais quoi” approach to dressing is just so highly covetable.As a result, I highlight Parisian fashion on the regular to inspire those similar sartorial sensibilities.In fact, I recently covered the styling tricks that makes one of the coolest French girls I follow, Aïda Sané (the mastermind behind @basicstouch), look even more French.This time, though, I wanted to tap her to dive into the spring trends she’s loving and also not loving as much.Given that she has a chic minimalist style, I was particularly curious about the simple yet chic looks she’s loving.
And given her adoration for more pared-back silhouettes, there were some more out-there trend counterparts that she “doesn’t understand” as much for her personal style.
(Keep in mind, however, that this is all based on individual preference and you should always wear what you personally love.)To showcase all of this further, keep scrolling to check out the five trends Sané will and probably won’t wear this season (for now, at least)—complete with outfit ideas that could be worth saving for later.And if you’re shopping at the moment, you’ll also find inspired picks below as well.Wearing: Denim on DenimNot Wearing as Much: Neon Photo: @basicstouch “I don’t think I would ever understand the neon trend, although this can be fun and a good way to be seen from the top of the Eiffel Tower.Instead, I’m really excited about the Canadian-tuxedo trend, which, to be honest, was a statement in my wardrobe for years.
I just add it with a trench for a casual chic look with low heels or a pair of white sneakers.” H&M Oversized Denim Shirt $30 Shop Now Madewell The Perfect Vintage Jeans $128 $96 Shop Now H&M Denim Shirt Jacket $30 Shop Now Good American Good ’90s Low Jeans $149 Shop Now Wearing: Straight-Leg JeansNot Wearing as Much: Bermuda Shorts Photo: @basicstouch “This spring season came with the business-casual trends, which I love, but I’m not as into the Bermuda-shorts trend, which I don’t think would look best on me.I will stay loyal to my straight-leg jeans—pairing them with a slightly oversize blazer, and again, low heels to be able to walk comfortably with just the right amount of highness.This is clearly going to be one of my spring uniforms, as this can be so versatile and effortlessly chic.” Shop straight-leg jeans: Citizens of Humanity Charlotte High Rise Straight Jeans $268 Shop Now Agolde Riley High Rise Straight Crop Jeans $178 Shop Now Good American Good Boy 32″ Inseam Jeans $155 Shop Now Agolde 90’s Pinch Waist High Rise Straight Jeans $188 Shop Now Wearing: Balloon-Sleeve TopsNot Wearing as Much: Disco-Collared Shirts Photo: @basicstouch “I may not be a disco girl yet with this disco-collar trend, but I have my balloon sleeves instead.A balloon-sleeve shirt in general is a chic piece where I can feel very comfortable without looking too overdressed.This top along with a pair of jeans or tailored pants gives you a very easy, cool, and smart look.” Free People The Eloise Thong Bodysuit $118 Shop Now H&M Balloon-Sleeved Cotton Blouse $30 Shop Now H&M Balloon-Sleeved Cotton Blouse $30 Shop Now Eloquii Square Neck Sheer Blouse $60 Shop Now Caroline Constas Elliot Crop Top $360 Shop Now Johanna Ortiz Voodoo Child Balloon Sleeve Poplin Wrap Top $495 Shop Now Wearing: Tube TopsNot Wearing as Much: Bra Tops Photo: @basicstouch “I don’t know if I will ever jump on that bra-top trend, but what I know is that I’m very excited about the tube top trend coming back.
