The Simple Knit French Girls Are Wearing With Jeans This Spring

Public service announcement: We've just discovered this season's easiest and most stylish outfit pairing, and surprise, surprise, the French girls were doing it first. In classic Parisian style, it's a super-simple formula—and we mean really simple. It's just the inspiration we need to re-create that elusive Gallic je ne sais quoi. Cardigans and jeans, you've never looked so chic.

The humble cardigan has been experiencing comeback over the last few months, challenging the classic crew-neck for the knitwear top spot and establishing itself as the fashion girl's go-to. But French girls have officially taken ownership of this particular outfit pairing, with everyone from Jeanne Damas to Solange Smith offering up their own interpretation.
