The Low-Key Flattering French-Girl Style Trick We're Seeing Everywhere


Style du Monde

French girls have a knack for breathing new life into wardrobe staples. And this time, they’re doing it with a piece that’s been buried in our closets for a while: corduroy pants. While this retro style has long been a fall basic, we haven’t seen it as much in the last few years. But make no mistake—it’s one of the biggest trends this fall.

The difference we’re noticing is that instead of modified versions with a skinny leg like we’ve seen more recently, there’s a return to a retro silhouette. Stepping out in wide-leg and boot-cut versions, French girls like Jeanne Damas are making a case for the classic style. And we’re also on board. This means the return of corduroy pants, but could this also suggest a rising popularity of boot-cut pants? We’re interested to find out.
