With the arrival of October today, we’re officially in sweater weather! I personally love a French Girl Closet Staple that works overtime and this versatile cardigan is just that. Wear it frontwards, backwards, with jeans, with skirts, over dresses, with black pants…this cardigan can do a lot which is why it is this week’s spotlight in my French Girl Closet Staples series.
French Girl Closet Staples – The Versatile Sweater
This Gaspard jumper by Sezane is a timeless knit that you can wear all year. With it’s soft fabric and mother of pearl buttons, I love that you can wear it a multitude of ways and always look effortlessly stylish. I first bought the black in 2017 and wore it so much that this year I added the Camel to my closet as well.
And here’s how I’ve styled my Black Gaspard sweater in the past:
I personally can’t wear the more pale colors of this sweater given I have a larger chest and the weave is a bit open. But the darker, warmer colors I absolutely love. I think the red would be gorgeous for the holidays as well!
I initially bought this sweater in the Medium years ago. But I didn’t love how oversized it was for this particular style. I like the fit of the size Small so that I can wear it with both skirts/dresses and pants. If you only plan to wear it with jeans you may want to take your usual size vs. sizing down so that it has a baggier fit which could look very chic.
Because of how much I wear it, I instantly bought this new, similar style they released because I couldn’t resist the ruffle sleeve detail. I got the color Mole in size Small and am in love!

I love this sweater! I can totally see why a great sweater is a French girl staple. I am already thinking about how I can put together some cute inspired outfits from the series 🙂 And Happy October, Meghan!
Aw yay! So glad you’re such a fan of the series, Libby!
I love this sweater! The buttons on the back are so cute. Shopping at Sezane while I was in Paris was such a dream – I may need to order this piece as a fall treat.
I so hope you do! It’s one of those pieces that transports me to Paris whenever I wear it!
I am DYING over this sweater! The camel color is gorgeous for fall!
I love this jumper so much! Just wondering about the quality – have you found it lasts well/doesn’t pile? Thank you 🙂
Hi Becca- I’ve had the black for over three years with no issues whatsoever! I’ve been buying sezane for over five years and never once had a quality issue
