We certainly don’t need to sit and explain to you that French-girl style is the inspiration behind many of our go-to looks. Our colleagues over at our sister site Who What Wear cover their effortless outfit ideas literally every week. While we certainly turn to this cool crowd to inform our off-duty vibes, we also look to them for work outfit ideas for casual office settings. Because really, nobody masters the whole polished, no-fuss feel more than Parisian women—and those same ensembles are ideal for that 9-to-5 life.

To get a sense of the uniforms we’re into now, keep scrolling to check out five easy French-girl outfits worth remembering when you’re getting ready for work.
