My quest to dress more French-like took a turn this weekend when I finally bought into the wide-leg trouser trend. Considering how tricky wide-leg trousers can be to style, I thought I’d share some of the best looks with you, so you, too, can embrace the trend with a Parisian flair.
From Juliette Binoche to Carla Bruni, it's no secret that French women possess a knack for a polished style that reads as effortless and cool. Over the years, they prove to really refine their personal senses of style with wardrobes stocked with incredible closet essentials.
The knitted-dress trend has come back in a seriously big way in 2021. However, there's one key component of this year's style that French women have been wearing forever. When it comes to knitted dresses in France, French girls are more likely to opt for a fitted version.
French fashion has inspired my own style that’s a lot less try-hard than it used to be, and I now invest in pieces that last: elevated basics that I can wear again and again, such as a black blazer, a great pair of jeans, a trench coat, a shirt or a slip dress to complete the look of the french girl aesthetic.
It's no secret that French women love to wear denim—you need only look on the feeds of our favourite French influencers to see just how deep this love affair is. And undoubtedly, their favourite piece of denim clothing is a pair of jeans. Tap the link to learn more about their favourite pair.
One thing we've noticed about French women is their shared ability to breathe new life into older trends—looks some might even deem "dated." But with their natural flair and laid-back approach to styling, they have influenced us to wear a trend we previously wrote off. Enter corduroy - from trousers to minis to blazers - this classic look is one we'll never tire of.
If the French know how to nail one thing (besides cheese), it's jeans. They are one of the hardest-working items in our wardrobes, after all. We've already touched upon the biggest jean trends we'll all be wearing in 2022—including '90s baggy styles, cross-over waistbands and, of course, with wider-leg styles coming back in general, it only makes sense that flares have returned.
