While French style does include the occasional trend, a lot of what the fashion folk of the city focus on are pieces that hold longevity. And while these pieces may seem like common sense to those in the know, they trickle into other parts of the market and pick up a following at lightning speed. As we head into the New Year, it seems like the industry has set its sights on another classic French trend—contrast trim. Popularized by Chanel, the design detail (primarily done in black or white) was often seen on tweed jackets, formal dresses, and skirts. Now, there are plenty of product options that include variety in both silhouette and price.
Whether you want to stick to the structural jackets that the trend was founded on or take a modern approach with a trimmed shearling jacket, this is a look worth spending money on. At first glance, it’s a simple element, but nothing about this trend is boring. It’s impeccably chic, timeless, and easy to wear. If you don’t believe me, just keep scrolling.
