You may have noticed that we’ve been paying a lot of attention to anti-trend and trend-free style lately. In the world we live in these days, the pace of the trend cycle is enough to make anyone’s head spin.

This is the reason their style is often referred to as “classic.” For the most part, French women rely on staple pieces such as blazers, striped sweaters, loose trousers, trench coats, straight-leg jeans, and white button-downs. Some of these items may even seem a bit cliché, but as you’ll see below, they wear ’em.
