You know that I love to invest in pieces from small French clothing brands! But the over $100 price tag is definitely a splurge that not everyone can make. The good news is you can still achieve that Parisian style on a budget!

What I recommend doing to find styles similar to your favourite French designer pieces is to just use google! I check out my favourite French fashion brands to find styles that I like and then just google characteristics that are similar to the French piece. For example, I’ll google “cropped eyelet top” or “button front midi skirt”. I’ll type the same thing in the search bar at my favourite retailers as well.

I was recently browsing H&M online and found this super cute button midi skirt that is almost an EXACT copy of the Rouje skirt that I wore recently. It’s just missing the tie at the waist. So I did some more searching and realised there were lots of styles available that were similar to some of the French pieces that I love! For example, this eyelet tank is similar to this Rouje top and under $25! I also love this one but it’s almost sold out. So it’s totally possible to get the almost exact same look at fast fashion sites like H&M! But you need to hurry! A lot of these styles are already sold out. The good news is, similar styles come back in stock often to just check the sites every once in awhile to make sure you don’t miss out!

I love this eyelet top from Forever 21. And the button front knit that I’m wearing in today’s post is from Zara! I was inspired by this button front tank from Rouje. It might take a little hunting and patience but eventually you can do it!
