Few wardrobes are as French or enviable as Loulou De Saison’s. The influencer/image creator/creative director (as she calls herself) and whose real name is actually Chloe, is best known for her monochromatic looks, pared back aesthetic, barely there makeup and French girl undone tresses and a heap load of Chanel.

When you’re a genuine model with top agency Storm, clothes aren’t going to look bad, but Emmanuelle Koffi’s feed doesn’t just showcase her work shoots, but her innate ability to pull together a decent look.

Think puff sleeves, everyday denim, a penchant for cute, printed two pieces and a little nod to a 90’s aesthetic.

As Emmanuelle calls it, “Be wild but stay soft.”

Jeanne Damas

@jeannedamas

Jeanne Damas is without a doubt one of the original Parisian It-girls of the Instagram generation.

A little like a modern day Jane Birkin, but actually French not just a Francophile, Jeanne’s style epitomises Parisian nonchalance.

From vintage tea dresses to a classic white tee and jeans combo to her signature red lipstick – even her Insta bio is brandished with the red lips emoji – her feed is worthy of her 1 million followers and counting if you’re after classic French style inspo.

The style icon has also launched her own fashion, accessories and beauty label, Rouje, so fans of her look can snap it up for themselves.

Violette Serrat

@violette_fr

Makeup artist by trade but so much more on the ‘gram, Violette’s stunning feed will have you scrolling for hours for pared back French fashion to stylish interiors and of course invaluable makeup tips.

There’s reason she’s not only an Instagram beauty influencer but EstĂ©e Lauder’s Global Beauty Director too, thanks to her playful attitude to makeup (it does wash off after all, so she’s not shy of a glitter pot or an electric blue eyelid), but also  the way she embraces what mama gave you and  using makeup to enhance, not change.

It’s worth checking out her YouTube channel too, for relatable makeup-focused content, tutorials, product suggestions and just utterly hypnotic videos that make putting on makeup look a breeze.

@leiasfez

Have you ever seen a chicer dressed bump? Mum, creative director, model, founder of childrenswear label Diapers and Milk, and soon-to-be-mum-again, Leia Sfez has that knack of looking utterly cool with very little effort, the way that only French women seem to do.

Leia masters the borrowed from the boys look with straight leg jeans, utilitarian trenches, white masculine shirts and classic suits, all pulled together with natural makeup, grown-out French girl bangs and a pinch of rock ‘n’ roll cool.

Carrole Sagba

@linaose

Parisian based Carrole Sagba, who goes by Lina Ose on the ‘Gram, is a bit of a chameleon when it comes to fashion, flitting between sporty cool and an ‘I mean business’ attitude with oversized tailoring, tough leather and bold colour.

One thing that brings all her looks together is her accessories and her brave approach to finishing off a look, whether that’s with the ludicrously oversized Jacquemus bag or fabulously fun ATP Atelier feathered heels.

Lina’s feed is also one to watch for chic African designers, independent labels and realistic beauty advice.

“Cher Horowitz’s nineties signature style meets Jane Birkin’s seventies Parisian aesthetic,” is how London-based fashion brand Rixo have described their current collaboration with French style maven, Sabina Socol.

And her Instagram is no different – think ditsy prairie florals and classic camel blazers, fiery  leopard print and sugar almond-hued playful accessories – this is one French girl who doesn’t take herself too seriously.

It also helps that she’s utterly gorgeous too, but not in a scary, supermodel way, more relatable girl next door. Just with a better wardrobe.
