But don’t worry, I’m not going to keep it a secret for any longer. Let me give you the tips I’ve learned from people-watching, unveiling the French’s secrets for mastering the art and power of denim!

Look for quality:

The most important thing you need to look at when choosing a denim piece is its quality. To make sure it looks effortlessly chic, it needs to look authentic. So opt for raw colors and thick materials, as well as apparent pockets (on the front for an even more uniquely sophisticated look!). And if it looks a little washed-out, it’s even better, giving it a vintage twist! As long as you stick to this advice, you can experiment with colors. From the classic charm of blue, to the chic of gray and black, the freshness of white or even some colors, there are endless possibilities! Here is the inspiration:

Oversized is alway a win:

For jeans, the trend is definitely to wear larger shapes this season. Loose, flared, oversized, wide-legs there is a lot to choose from. While loose jeans and wide-legs will give you an effortlessly trendy style inspired by the 90s, flared ones will make it look bohemian-chic, as if taken from the 60s. Or opt for long and large denim skirts for edgy glamorous.On the top, oversize shirts and jackets are essentials, never running out-of-style. Throw one open over a classic outfit for an effortless look, or button-it down for a trendy chic aesthetic. 

Big denim clothes are statement pieces that will always make a bold statement, so they can be styled easily with good basics: neutral tones tee, a striped sweater etc.. Plus, they’re so comfortable, so what’s not to love?
