What do espadrilles, basket bags, and printed dresses have in common? Well, the makings of a Parisian summer wardrobe, of course!
It’s not hard to gather inspiration from the French, so using their key style elements, here are 6 Parisian inspired summer looks!
6 Parisian Inspired Summer Looks
1. polka dot dress + basket bag + slides
Polka dots are charming, feminine, and great to wear all year long, but look especially cute when the weather warms up! Adding a basket bag makes any look Parisian chic. Related: FRENCH GIRL STARTER WARDROBE
2. striped tee + skinny jeans + espadrille wedges
Sure, you can’t wear jeans the whole summer, but they look cute for those chillier mornings. You don’t lose the summer vibes though when paired with espadrille wedges. Cat eye sunglasses channel the vintage French vibes!
3. cami + skirt + sandals + basket bag
Many of my favorite French muses count on skirts to get them through the summer. Skirts are great because they can either be fancy with strappy heel sandals for a night out or cute and casual with sandals for a normal day!
4. gingham skirt + white button down + espadrille wedges
Straw bags are always in come summer, but these straw totes are having a moment! A French wardrobe always has a white button down in it and that, paired with espadrille wedges, makes this Parisian inspired!

Dainty, printed dresses are huge summer staples in a Parisian wardrobe. And by now you know that you can’t go wrong by pairing any look with some cute espadrille wedges!
6. polka dot dress + straw hat + espadrille wedges
Once again polka dots come through as the pretty print you can’t give up. Sleeves are a big thing right now too, so look for dresses with some extra sleeve detailing!
When you have some key pieces, such as vintage sunglasses, espadrilles, straw totes, and printed dresses, it’s not hard to look Parisian chic, even if there’s nothing Parisian about you at all haha!
