Brigitte’s minimalist wardrobe is regarded as a standard for the French-chic aesthetic. She often wears blazers, dresses and pantsuits, as well as skinny jeans and trousers, in sharp neutral tones. For formal occasions, she dons elegant dresses and gowns with minimal embellishments, with most ailing from French labels like Alaïa, Alexandre Vauthier and Dior.

When it comes to footwear, most of the French first lady’s shoes are by Louis Vuitton, which is one of her go-to brands — she also counts Vuitton designer Nicolas Ghesquière as a close friend. She can often be seen in pointed-toe pumps and sporty sneakers in similarly chic colors.
