Denim Street Style Trends From Paris

Spring jeanswear trends emerged during Paris Fashion Week, where revelers opted for casual denim looks toward the conclusion of a long fashion-focused month.

Parisians offered up a high-end nod to ’80s nostalgia with vintage wash jeans and white leather boots reminiscent of the styles worn by the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders during the decadent decade. Street styles ranged from laid back with white sweatshirt tops and vacation-inspired tees, to luxurious with white mohair coats, corseted bodices and tulle necklines.

Acid wash denim made a brasher impression. The ’80s and ’90s washes were enhanced with silhouettes from the eras, including high-waisted pleated denim, cropped jean jackets and denim hot pants.

Jeans with deconstructed waistbands, flare silhouettes and Dad jeans were simplified with clean, light washes. The classic wash offset bolder items like tie-dye hoodies, fanny packs, rhinestone belt buckles and iridescent handbags. Pointed collars looked fresh and new on denim dresses and jean jackets.

Ankle-skimming, straight fit jeans and man-tailored blazers or relaxed cardigans continued to be a de facto uniform of French girl style. Frayed hems, slit knees and monochromatic patchwork added personality to the jeans, while Chanel chain belts elevated the total look.

Women also experimented with longer lengths by tucking jeans into leopard print tall boots, and into scrunched socks worn with hiker sneakers.
