Engagement Party
If there's one thing we should take away from French girl style it's the way they carry their confidence! Nothing is over the top, they don't need to wear the highest heel, or a risqué dress to be sexy. They know a little skin and sheer here or there is sometimes all that's needed to do the trick. Definitely follow their lead and go for a dress with a feminine shape, like a bodice, but full skirt, or a slinky dress with a sheer, lace overlay.

Wedding Shower
What's chicer than a shrugged jacket? Perhaps one that's slung in a feminine print or shape with an effortless dress to boot. It's your wedding shower, so you can be a bit more girly and garden inspired. The look is as easy as it is charming!

Bachelorette Party
Just because French women are known for their effortless chic aesthetic, it doesn't mean they don't slay evening glam like the best of them. Mimic their night-out-on-the-town ensembles by sticking with the French girl uniform of choise, a sleek LBD — little black dress — or jumpsuit, and pair it with a fun jacket to keep things bachelorette-y.

Rehearsal Dinner
After all the hair-pulling planning, you've made it to the rehearsal dinner — the night before the wedding! Take advantage of there being no guests to over impress, just your closest friends and family, and go with the most infamous French woman outfit — a blouse and pants. The blouse is always slightly oversized and for this occasion go with a silk top and embellished accessories to elevate the look!

We don't know where you plan on heading for your honeymoon, but we do know once you arrive, there's a category of garments that every bride will need no matter the location — lingerie. While American women tend to think the more elaborate the sexier, our Parisian counterparts think its less about straps and strings and more about showing your gorgeous shape. Curvier woman look stunning in higher waisted, lace-detailed sets, while slimmer straight hips look more alluring in low bikini/string bottoms and low-cut demi bras. Either way forget the fuss and complicated pieces, a simple sultry black lace set will not disappoint.

European Island Honeymoons

Island hopping in the Mediterranean doesn't have to just be a fantasy honeymoon escape. Turn this dreamy getaway into a reality, cozying up in cliffside villas and beachfront bungalows with one of these five idyllic islands.

With its scenic cliffs and underwater caves like the famous Blue Grotto, Capri's landscape is not the only thing seducing honeymooners. Charming villas-turned-boutique hotels up the luxury (and romance) factor here on the island, with views of nearby Naples and Mount Vesuvius from your perch on cliffside spots like the all-white J.K. Place Capri.

Honeymoons in Italy conjure up romantic visions of Venice's canals or Tuscany's rolling hills, but the island of Sardinia offers just as picturesque views with the sea lapping in the distance. Stay in one of the wilder areas on the southernmost tip of the island in the revamped Lighthouse of Capospartivento — the oldest on Sardinia — with six luxury junior suites, an infinity pool, and a Mediterranean garden.

Gozo's rugged cliffs and rocky coastline made it a stunning scene for Daenerys' wedding in the first season of Game of Thrones, but the island's spectacular sunsets and tucked-away hotels also make it a dream locale for honeymooners. Nicknamed "the island within an island," five-star boutique Hotel Ta' Cenc spans 370 acres on Gozo's highest point, with picture-perfect views of Malta and Comino and dreamy digs in secluded, stone-built bungalows.

Nestled between the French and Italian coasts — and technically considered part of France — Corsica has a spirit of its own. Rugged mountains dot the center of the island, while refined resorts like Relais & Châteaux's Grand Hôtel de Cala Rossa & Spa grace the coastline.

A quick boat ride from the jetset island of Hvar in the Dalmatian islands lies the tiny island of Vis, known for some of the most gorgeous beaches on the Adriatic, reachable only by footpath. Hide away in your own cozy Mediterranean villa in the fisherman's village of Komiza, the perfect homebase to set off and explore the island's vineyards and natural attractions like the south cliffs and nearby blue cave.
