We talk a lot here at Who What Wear about the classic aesthetic of French women, which is undoubtedly part of what makes their style so appealing to people around the world. This penchant for timeless style also applies to their denim choices. That said, while they wear the classics, they also make room for more trend-forward styles. And as you’ve probably noticed, French women love wearing jeans both day and night year-round, so there’s plenty of room for denim diversity.
I’ve been a Who What Wear editor for 10 years, which translates to a lot of time spent looking at French outfits on Instagram. Because of this, I’m pretty confident in saying that I’ve pinpointed the exact denim styles French women own—many of which they’ve been wearing for years. Scroll on to see examples of the jeans and shop versions of the styles for your own denim collection.
