We here at Who What Wear like to talk in great detail (and with much passion!) about our 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 2020—including vintage-inspired denim, distressed jeans, and one of our personal favorites right now, bootcut and flare jeans.
Yes, friends, the '70s silhouette is back, and we've already spotted the style on some of our favorite celebrities including, Margot Robbie, Priyanka Chopra, and Gigi Hadid. Thanks to designers such as Celine, Marc Jacobs, and Gucci, leg-lengthening flares are set to be huge this year. And we've noticed that fashionable French girls, in particular, have been quick to jump on the trend.
The pinnacle of effortlessly chic, below we're sharing some of the cool ways French girls are wearing the anti–skinny-jean trend right now. Invest in one of the chic pairs below and you'll be wholly on-trend for the year.
French girls have a knack at making even the simplest of basics look seriously chic. Pair your high-waisted denim flares with a simple yet sophisticated black button-down and create a flattering and elongating effect by cinching your jeans at the waist with a vintage-inspired brown belt.
For a chic French-girl look, balance the volume of flares with a formfitting top or bodysuit—preferably in one of this season's trending hues such as minty green.
Show off your boots with a loose wide-leg silhouette (that has a slightly shorter hem) and pair with an of-the-moment shacket (shirt-jacket hybrid) for a look that's very on-trend.
Create a leg-lengthening effect by pairing your bootcut jeans with an equally long cardigan or overcoat. (Bootcut jeans with slits allow for a cool way to showcase your shoes.)
Every French girl has a handful of chic little cardigans in their repertoire to pair with their jeans. For a weekend look, wear your flared jeans with sneakers and a vintage-inspired cropped cardigan in a cute pastel hue.
