Please let me know if you have any information. fashionJeans will always be the most essential pair of trousers. They are the first thing you reach for when there is nothing else. They are also the most worn type of trousers I see in France. The thing is les françaisesseem to know exactly how to make jeans look chic. I spent a lot of time studying how French women do it and have narrowed it down to six key jeans. outfitThey return to formulae that they have used before.
Of course, there’s the classic blazer-and-smart-shoes combo, the oversized white shirt and then the cropped-blouse look inspired by Jane Birkin. But there are a few others that I think you’re missing out on—ones you’ll definitely want to know about. Below, I have a list of many jeans. outfitsYou can also shop the looks online for inspiration.
1. Blazer + Smart Shoe
Style Notes Both Camille Charrière and Emmanuelle Alt know a good blazer when they see one. In fact, nearly all the French women I follow on Instagram seem to be able to find a chic jacket that is part of their DNA. This is great news if you want to elevate your jeans without going too flashy. To complete the look, add cool mules or sandals.

2. Flat Sandals and White Shirt
Style Notes Another staple in the French wardrobe is the white shirt. The most French way to wear this is to keep it unbuttoned as far as you feel comfortable, and if you flash a tiny bit of lingerie, then you’re on your way to being très French. Flat sandals look great with this style.

3. Knit + Ankle Boots
Style Notes I’ve seen French designer Jeanne Damas wearing this look plenty of times, and it always looks great. Yes, it’s incredibly simple, but there are a couple of French twists that are worth considering. First, wrap your jumper around your jeans. You should also make sure that your jeans are high-waisted.

4. White Socks + Loafers
Style Notes This is a relatively new styling trend I’ve spotted on a couple of French women, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t going to be timeless. The loafer trend is booming, so take a style cue form our Gallic neighbours and wear white socks with them. Yep, it’s that simple.

5. Double Denim + Heels
Style Notes Double denim is a favorite of many French icons, like Caroline de Maigret et Charlotte Gainsbourg. What is the coolest way to wear double denim right now? A denim jacket with a twist is one that features oversized lapels, a belted version or a non-classic silhouette. Matching jeans and heels are also options.
