6 Ways to Wear Denim Like Cool Parisian Girls

Adding edge to your outfit starts from the bottom up this spring. Drastic uneven hems on cropped jeans impart avant-garde French style, especially when worn with a bow heel and modern accents. One half of budding fashion duo Lili & Pat of La Barbe de Lyly, Songa knows all about power pairing. Her signature mix of tough and sweet takes this outfit from your street straight to the Champs-Élysées.

Sarah Nait, Fashion Blogger

Nait is into the crisp white denim trend this spring, especially when it’s part of a monochromatic look and balanced with noir ladylike touches. “It’s more interesting with feminine elements like a pair of black mules and a retro-inspired clutch.” The result? A très chic ensemble.

Nadia Azoug, Jewelry Designer

Raw-edge denim hems add appeal in an understated way. Nadia Azoug of Monsieur prefers quintessential French polish with her go-to jagged pair. “These jeans feel boyish, so I wear them with a beautifully cut trench,” says Azoug. The juxtaposition sends a casual-cool message loud and clear.

Typhaine Augusto, Stylist and DJ

Distressed, faded jeans have a lived-in appearance that appeals to Augusto’s low-key, vintage-inspired aesthetic (regularly chronicled at Cuillère à Absinthe). “I only wear really modern pieces with them,” Augusto explains. “A chic blouse contrasts the ripped look, and mules are the It shoes of 2017.” Rounded out with a classic chainstrap bag, what’s old feels new again.

Jasmine Ng, Editorial & Social Media Consultant

Ng (a.k.a. @JasmineTartine) has a sharp eye for details, and this season she’s zoomed in on high-waist jeans. The style’s clean lines feel relaxed with an easy button-down shirt. A hint of lace underneath and sultry heel add a dash of sex appeal, while a local favorite is the ideal finishing touch: “French women love quality scarves; bright blue is the perfect pop of color.”
