Daughter of a Lanvin model, wife of Isabel Marant's artistic director, and the reigning editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, Emmanuelle Alt has serious style cred. Heck, she's been in the biz since she was 17.

You might think someone with that resume would flaunt nothing but lavish designer goods—opulent day dresses, strappy colorful footwear, stop-and-stare prints—but Alt does nothing of the sort. She's forever minimal, tailored and restrained. In fact, her favorite skinny jeans are from Topshop, which she wears with her signature belted blazers and black heels. She is classic with a rock twist in the form of leather jackets, dark layers and fedoras.

Her special formula of je ne sai quoi doesn't stop there. With ceaselessly unfussy tresses and a bare face, there's a genuine effortlessness to her every look. It's the sort of quiet comfortable confidence that makes us want to dial back our wardrobes and channel our inner French girl.

French girls still have the Jane Birkin culture. You can go just like that, without makeup, without managing your hair."

Take a dive through Alt's most inspiring and refreshingly easy-to-replicate outfits below. Do you have a favorite?
