How to Wear Skinny Jeans Like a French Girl

We consider skinny jeans to be about as American as fashion comes, but that doesn't mean we can't learn a thing or two about wearing the wardrobe staple from our French counterparts. We have a well-documented obsession with Parisian style, especially that of the ultra-cool singer and model Lou Doillon, who happens to be the star of J Brand's fall 16 denim campaign. For the four-shot series, the French fashion plate serves up a major lesson in how Europe's chicest women wear their blue jeans.

So what's Doillon's secret when it comes to wearing skinnies? She keeps things simple. The model poses wearing the ubiquitous denim with understated wardrobe staples: a relaxed button-down, a sleek leather jacket, and simple black ankle booties. Together, the ensembles capture that effortless je ne se quoi that Parisian women perfectly possess.
