It's no secret that achieving French-girl style is something many, many want to do—and that's why we've curated countless guides on the exact pieces, brands, and combos that some of our go-to French influencers fall back on time and again. We've highlighted the six trends they're skipping this fall (plus those they'll be sporting instead), found the basics French girls live in year-round, and we even found the lingerie brands all French girls swear by. Follow our guides and, well, you'll practically be French.
But even though we've covered nearly every aspect of a well-rounded Parisian wardrobe, from the undergarments to the closet basics, there's one insanely important category we have yet to tackle: the best French denim brands that are key in attaining that highly sought-after French-girl style. Denim, after all, is one of the most-worn fabrics in the City of Lights, so it only makes sense we add it to our French fashion archives, no?
