French Girls Love This Easy Two-Piece Outfit Formula—Get the Look for Under $99

A Tank and Jeans is Great, But These 6 Outfits Take the Look to the Next Level



There’s one key spring-and-summer outfit formula that withstands the test of time and will always be chic according to French women. Yep, we’re talking about the simple look featuring a tank and jeans. This ensemble just works given its easy nature. While the two pieces on their own are great, there are a few fresh outfit ideas we thought you might be interested in. The looks in question basically take the simple silhouette to the next level if you add asymmetric cuts, overlay shirts, and different denim washes to spice up the classic look. For example, a tank and jeans with the addition of an oversize shirt or that look with unique jewelry and shoes. 

Don't just take it from us— take it from the chic French women themselves who gravitate towards this affordable, everyday staple in their spring and summer outfit rotation. Naturally, we also shopped out each with inspired picks in case you’re interested in adding a new piece or two into your wardrobe.
