Elle Fanning may be a California girl who was walking around NYC this week, but she looked every bit the French girl while doing so. Fanning’s off-duty style has always been fairly classic, and this outfit was the perfect example of her polished casual style, and it was just the sort of polished outfit you’re likely to see on the streets of Paris this time of year.
In my years of covering French style, I’ve found its residents to choose lots of chic basics when they put together an outfit, just as Fanning did on this particular occasion. She went with a black turtleneck, straight-leg jeans, and a trench coat. She accessorized with a black scrunchie, rectangular sunglasses, and a French girl staple: loafers (which are just as popular in Paris as ballet flats lately). Fanning’s versatile, timeless outfit is right in step with the minimal, quiet luxury look that’s happening in fashion right now—and that French women have been wearing for years.
