I’m in My '20s and Live in Paris—Here Are the Outfit Formulas I Love

As you may know, we have quite a thing for French-girl style over here at Who What Wear—from the cool brands they love to the investment pieces they always wear along with the trends they adopt (and those they don’t)—our appreciation for the French-girl wardrobe runs deep.

As a Francophile myself who has always longed to live in Paris, I follow a rather large number of French girls on Instagram for effortlessly-chic style inspiration. This week, I tapped into one of my favorite fashion influencers to follow in Paris, Léna Farl, known for her easy, cool, everyday outfits that make us want to pack our bags, rent an apartment in the 11th and drink wine by Canal Saint-Martin. The 26-year-old has a knack for mixing vintage pieces with buzzy French brands alongside affordable pieces from Zara —creating chic and easy ensembles that you'll want to copy for yourself.

Below, she’s sharing five go-to outfit formulas she relies on time and time again for doing anything and everything around Paris. Take a peek below to get inspired by the pieces she styles together and shop the looks for yourself.
