Spring has sprung, and that can mean only one thing: no more giant puffy coats to hide your outfits under. And in that spirit, it’s time to pull out those warm weather clothes and see what you’ve got to work with.

In this video, fashion vlogger Alyssa Beltempo brings her “shop your closet” concept to the arena of French girl style. The general idea is, rather than go out and buy a whole new wardrobe, you can use these general principles of French girl style to put together pieces you already own in ways you may not have thought of yet.

Beltempo chooses to focus on a few main principles:

1. Mixing high and low fashion.

2. Balanced proportions and silhouettes.

3. Using interesting textures to add dimension to neutral colors.

4. Splurging on handbags and shoes that are quality, though not necessarily designer.

So open up that storage bin and use these tips and tricks to give yourself that Parisian feel without going broke at Sézane. And don’t miss a few more French girl outfit ideas from Beltempo while you’re at it.
