We all know the fashion world goes crazy for that quintessential French girl look. It’s a minimal button up shirt, jeans, sneakers and a skinny AF body. But hold up, what does this babe wear when summer comes around and she needs to get her tropical, palm-tree vibe going?

Enter the perfect ‘French Girl hits the Beach’ style: the ponytail hair scarf.

The headscarf has taken on countless different incarnations over time, but for this summer all you really need to hone in on is this one. The look is simple, just grab a square silk scarf tie it around your ponytail, bun or half up-do. Don’t over think it, messiness works in favour of the effortless.

The best bit? It’s a widely accessible and often an inexpensive trend to get involved with. Pick up a bunch from your local op shop, use one you’ve had lying in the wardrobe for years, or treat yo’self to a spot of online shopping.

It’s a pop of colour, a nod to holiday mode (without compromising on any chic), so what’s not to love? Give the pony scarf a style trial of your own, we’ll show you how. 

Hot tip: we're currently crushing on this beauty by Bellini. ICYMI, that's the one pictured above.
