French girls just get it. No matter what occasion they’re dressing for, that je ne sais quoi just shines through in every outfit they seem to throw together. Given our sartorial fascination with this set, we thought we’d dig a little deeper into how they consistently make their outfits seem, well, for lack of a better word, French (aka effortless and chic). We tapped Parisian influencer Aïda Sané (the mastermind behind the IG account @basicstouch) to fill us in.
