The allure of French girl style lies in its effortless ease. Curated and cool, but never try-hard, Parisian panache is what elevates an everyday look into something with a bit more je ne sais quoi. For this, accessories are often key in taking staples to the next level. And investing in a good bag is súper move to move your wardrobe into one with enviable French flair.
One cognac-colored bag with a simple but sophisticated shape, adjustable strap, classic colorway and gold hardware; boasting the Longchamp XL medal closure is an icon.
Yes, the Longchamp Box Trot Bag is chic, practical, and timeless—three adjectives that summarize Parisian style in totality.
To illustrate just how well the versatile Box Trot pairs well with everything from prim and proper dresses to edgy street-style separates, we’ve curated three looks for you. Here, we’ve dreamed up some Parisian-inspired outfits for cities across the U.S. that boast strikingly different style profiles—New York City, Los Angeles, and Charleston. Each is enhanced by the casually cool and effortlessly elegant Longchamp Box Trot Bag in Cognac. Read on to see how we’d style the Box Trot in each city. And oui, these looks pack perfectly, should you decide to take your talents to Paris after all.
L.A. style intersects with French girl fashion at the corner of minimalism and neutrals. Less is more, and the better the fit, the chicer the ‘fit. This cream HENNE set feels timeless and chic, with the off-the-shoulder neckline and décolletage cutout adding the right amount of interest. Pair it with Staud suede boots and Saint Laurent sunnies with sepia lenses to accent the bag’s rich cognac colorway.
New York City
For cool-girl contrast that toes the line between practical and playful, dressy and relaxed, this green suit from Sleeper boasting pearl buttons and feather trim fits the bill. We especially loved juxtaposing the look with casual Loewe sneakers in a matching hue. Style the striking suit with the Longchamp Box Trot’s shoulder strap, and go for chunky gold jewelry courtesy of Jenny Bird to finish things off. Employ one of Machete’s tortoise hair pins in lieu of a claw clip for a quick updo.
When Parisian flair meets Southern charm, feminine silhouettes get their time to shine. This structured Simkhai dress in elevated dark denim feels like an upgraded ode to girlhood. Add a chunky cardigan like this knit from Cult Gaia to dress it down for daytime. Add the Longchamp Box Trot on its crossbody strap and other details in the same cognac leather, like these Burberry penny loafers and this Balmain headband.
