The Jean: A slightly off-kilter style: cropped with a straight leg, instead of the more common skinny one. Not only does it look a bit fresher, it's also flattering: the kick flare balances out wider hips and makes ankles look teensy in comparison.

Lately, whenever I see a pair of very, very good jeans, they're on a French girl. I'm admittedly a total Francophile-so take it with a grain of salt if you want-but I think the Frenchies are killing us at our own game. As much as denim may be a stereotypically American 'thing,' the French are just awesome at it. Awesome. Click through above to see what I mean: from slightly eccentric cuts and washes to incredibly sharp tailoring, these jeans are cool enough to be head-turning but not, you know, trendy (how garish, how American). Naturally, I want them all.
