7 Things French Girls Always Wear With Jeans

While we continually look to French women for many things, it's their consistent sartorial uniform that inspires us the most. That's not to say French girls don't experiment with fashion and dabble with new trends. However, when push comes to shove, there are a few things we can always count on them wearing, especially with their jeans.

Today, we're here to take a deep dive into the denim styling of French girls to identify which items they seem to wear with their jeans the most. Thanks to the strong social media presence of French icons like Jeanne Damas and Camille Charriere, we have pretty good insight on the contents of their wardrobes, so figuring out what they love to wear with jeans the most was kind of a no-brainer. From cropped cardigans to trench coats, get ready to shop the seven things French girls always wear with jeans.

Cropped Cardigans

All kinds of cardigans are welcome in the French-girl wardrobe, but when it comes to denim, it's cropped variations of the knitwear staple they seem to gravitate toward the most. 

Statement Coats

Treating jeans as a blank canvas for the coolest outfit ideas is what French girls do best. Give them a bold statement coat and a pair of denim, and they're out the door. 

Party Tops

That effortless way of dressing is what we envy most about the Parisians, and that translates to their going-out looks as well. A festive party top with jeans is all they need to feel glamorous. 

Ankle Boots

Yes, pretty much everyone wears ankle boots with their jeans, but there's something about the way French girls style the duo that made us feel like we needed to include it in this roundup. 

Trench Coats

If you were unsure about adding a trench to your wardrobe, seeing how chic French girls look while wearing the staple item will help you finally go for it. Pairing these two classic items together is the recipe for a foolproof outfit time and again. 

More Denim

Denim on denim? Yes, always yes. We love how forward the combo looks when paired with stark-white boots like the outfit below. 


Last but not least, we have blazers. Currently, the Parisian style set has been opting for more oversize versions with their jeans and accessorizing them with everything from headbands to belts and everything in between.
