The French-Girl Way to Wear Leggings and Flat Boots Is Très Chill

We know you're always on the lookout for cool, legitimate and non-scruffy ways to justify wearing a pair of leggings (who isn't?) so that means our jersey-trouser radar is always switched on. This week it was the turn of Insta-loved French model, actress and L'Oreal ambassador Thylane Blondeau to teach us a thing or two about making the stretchy heroes ready for winter.

Her look when arriving at LAX airport had the prerequisite amount of French style (mussed-up hair, pout, done), but she stepped outside of the Hollywood sneaker-and-legging formula to bring a British piece into the mix: Dr. Martens. Along with a retro bomber jacket, an oversized tee, an equally large handbag and sunglasses, Thylane just solved our comfy-cool conundrum for the weekend.
