How to Dress Like a Paris It Girl

The Inspiration: Lou Doillon

The Girl: French actress and singer; daughter of Jane Birkin.

The Trick: Oscillate between nonchalant "I'm with the band" pieces (skinny jeans, military jackets) and absurdly polished eveningwear (pencil skirts, chiffon blouses). But either way, always top each look with beachy hair to add that undone cool element. Sooooo French.

Some of our favorite looks at Paris Fashion Week don't even happen on the runways. Instead, they hail from a certain group of front-row females who crop up during the week's fancy dinners and after-parties, too: Paris' It girls. From Chanel-incarnate Caroline Sieber (who wears Karl's creations as often as we do blue jeans) to impossibly perfect-haired Lou Doillon (her beach waves are insane), each one's got a look worth studying. Above, click through to see our favorite It girls' go-to styles—and shop similar, currently available looks.
