The Anti-Jean Outfits French Girls Are Wearing This Spring

Okay, okay, in reality, French girls are certainly not “over” jeans. Seriously—one quick glimpse at some of the chicest Parisians on Instagram, and you’ll quickly realize that denim is a staple of the French. That said, we’ve noticed that this set is, like many other fashion people, embracing the anti-jean look with a variety of athleisure alternatives.

Yep, that’s right—French girls are going all-in on the jogger trend that’s infiltrating the street style and celeb world. Ahem, you may remember Kendall Jenner’s recent sweatpants ensemble at the airport recently. Well, to showcase the comfortable yet chic outfits Parisian women are wearing this spring, we curated a range of ensembles below with non-denim pieces (joggers, leggings, and more) as the foundation of each look. Keep scrolling for more and shop the inspired fits.

Joggers are one of the key elements that make up a forward outfit this season, and French girls are all about the trend. Here, standard sweats get an elevated twist with a bodysuit, slouchy blazer, and wrap heels.

While joggers are increasing in popularity, a pair of leggings still remains a mainstay as a cool and yes, chic alternative to denim teamed with polished pieces.

For a sophisticated day-to-day fit, straight trousers in a comfortable fabric are where it’s at with casual items like a hoodie and sneakers. An overcoat or trench keeps the overall look refined.

As we stated above, French girls are very into the jogger look at the moment, like with this ensemble featuring a vibrant sweater for that easy vibe.

Instead of jeans, consider a pair of utility pants like these. Parisian women are wearing them with oversize jackets and sneakers.
