It’s natural, as finally arrive at the long-awaited warmer months, that our minds and wardrobes shift to dresses. Although they’re a year-round staple in the wardrobes of many, there’s nothing quite as satisfying as slipping into your favourite dress without the need for tights or a chunky jumper thrown over the top once the warm weather settles in. Having been treated to a few bright days over the last fortnight, I have found myself daydreaming about the dresses I’ll wear this year, be it for weddings or to elevate my daily wares.
Whenever I fancy treating myself to something new or require a fresh dose of fashion inspiration, there is a selection of women I turn to, and the fact they’re all French or reside in France is no coincidence. If you’re familiar with my byline (for better or worse, my name is pretty easy to remember), you’ll know that I am an avid fan of the French aesthetic. I was eager to find out which dress trends French women actually wear come summer to inform my own frock selection.
After hours of research, I can confidently say eight dress trends get the overall French-girl stamp of approval. From the print that Gallic girls always come back to to the shapes and silhouettes they prefer, scroll on to see the dress trends French women subscribe to each summer.
