From wrap dresses to jumpsuits, French women are wearing these fashion trends with aplomb this season. 

It’s no fashion secret that we all want to emulate the effortless ensembles of Parisian women. From their less-is-more approach to dressing to having mastered the art of just keeping style simple, they’ve rightly garnered a reputation for being utterly chic.

So, of course, we’re all eager to know what they’ll be wearing as we switch seasons. Thankfully, it turns out that French women are searching for inspiration on Pinterest – who knew? More specifically three big trends: jumpsuits, wrap dresses and block heels.

And the best part? All three styles can easily be incorporated into your autumn wardrobe. Don’t worry, we’ve done all the legwork and put together an edit of our favourite picks for you to shop. Peruse our edit below. 


The jumpsuit shook off it’s Seventies-style connotations long ago which is why for autumn it’s taking on a sophisticated flair. From well-cut designs to one-shoulder options, the allure is to fling the one-piece one (trust the French to pick something simple) and then add a few accessories.
