Get French Girl Style While Shopping Your Closet

You don’t have to go out and buy half of Zara just to spice up your wardrobe. Sometimes, the best outfits can be built from things you already own.

Meet Alyssa Beltempo, a fashion vlogger whose emphasis is on chic, sustainable, and affordable day wear. Her motto is “shop your closet,” a concept rooted around buying smart, long-lasting staples you can use to mix and match in new and interesting combinations. This week’s theme? French girl style. The two looks here are both casual with an upscale lilt, playing with color, tonal disparities, and an ultimate sense of inimitable chicness. One look is a summery white jeans/neutral top deal with some pops of red, while the other is a high-low look with the classic Parisian white sneakers paired with a fashionable jacket and a quick dose of denim.

French girl style doesn’t mean shopping on the Champs-Elysées. Learn to find your own version with slow fashion that is curated, considerate, and capable of making all your friends wonder… what’s her secret?
