Brooke Shields Wore the Jeans Style That Cindy Crawford and French Girls Love

What clothing item do ’90s supermodels and stylish French girls have heavily stocked in their wardrobes? Bootcut jeans, that’s what. Despite being somewhat “outdated” in recent years, the denim style‘s reputation hasn’t stopped models such as Cindy Crawford from donning a pair or two, nor has it made French girls ditch them for a more on-trend wide-leg or baggy jeans. 

Most recently, the silhouette, which got its name because of the way the legs widen after the knee to make room for a pair of boots, was spotted on Crawford’s former co-worker in the modeling field Brooke Shields as she headed into Good Morning America on Monday. Though she chose a gorgeous neon-green dress and white blazer for her appearance on the talk show, her look outside of the studio was the real hit. With her mid-wash bootcut jeans, Shields wore a midi-length wool coat, a black sweater, Western boots, and a cobalt-blue bag. 

But as the French-girl outfits below will prove, there’s no one way to style bootcut jeans. In fact, the options are practically endless. Scroll down to see how Shields, Crawford, and the coolest dressers in Paris do it. 

WHO: Brooke Shields

WHO: Cindy Crawford

All you need is a simple tank and button-down when your jeans are this good.

The French just do it better, period. 

I’ve had legit dreams about this Miu Miu look, from the visible underwear to the low-key bootcut jeans. 

It doesn’t get more classic than a poplin shirt, jeans, ankle boots, and a laissez-faire knit tied casually around the shoulders.

This Western-inspired look is a sight for sore eyes.
