French Girly (フレンチガーリー) is a substyle of Japanese Girly Kei fashion as well as an aesthetic created by and popular among young women in Japan. It is an elegant and feminine aesthetic that utilizes imagery associated with antique French Haussmann architecture and material culture, combined with whimsical and kawaii details. This type of fashion is largely inspired by luxury brands and prep, but takes on an extremely girly look that is fairly unique to Japanese culture.

This style can be commonly found on Instagram and has been reported on by Japanese fashion magazines as well as online sites aimed at young women. French Girly also centers around the clothing of various indie brands that gained notoriety for creating and catering to this aesthetic, largely by the brand Epine.
