My Skinny Jeans

8 years ago by

In Partnership With GAP

As time goes by, the more I feel like being feminine, sexy…while still being myself. And my best ally for that is jeans. Probably because no matter what I do, my favorite style is everyday style – simple & casual.

So I’m delighted to launch this new project I’m working on in collaboration with Gap, around denim – in the coming weeks, I’ll introduce you to some people I adore wearing jeans that I adore, dressed as they are in everyday life. Super natural looks, basically!

Gap is pretty pro, and when it comes to jeans, they’ve got it all.

The flared jeans I love, the straight leg high-waisted jeans that are in right now (which I still haven’t really mastered but I’d love to) and of course, some fantastic skinny jeans, like the ones I’m wearing in these photos.

They’re super comfortable, and I chose these because no matter what the trend of the moment is, when I want to feel good and ready for any occasion, I put on skinny jeans. Then a pair of Zizi’s or heels depending on the situation and I’m ready for my day – from meetings to photo shoots to parties. Black in winter. Light blue in spring. Yes. I chose these jeans to call in the Spring!

P.S. You can also see my haircut in the middle of growing out. Don’t judge – in a few more weeks, it’s going to be great (at least I hope). In the mean time, I’m experimenting with it!








Probably because no matter what I do, my favorite style is everyday style – simple & casual.

  • When we have long and nice legs like you we don’t need more than a pair of Jeans….
    a pair of jean is really a language today….. it tell a story…that’s why it’s so important to find The one…

  • Je crois que je pourrai passer ma vie en slim et skinny…. Si tu peux souffler à Gap d’allonger un peu leurs jeans, ce serait sympa, ils sont simplement importables quand on fait plus d’1m75 ! (du moins ceux vendus en France…) ;)

  • Même problème que toi Élodie, je fais 1m78 et je suis obligée de me priver de jeans car aucun n’est assez longs :( si quelqu’un a de bonnes adresses je suis preneuse d’ailleurs !

  • Le Leigh de Topshop existe en differentes longueurs et convient parfaitement a mon 1m75 :)

    moi je fais un mètre 76 et je trouve que les AG jeans sont longs comme il faut; freesoul aussi. xo

  • Très joli ce jean !
    Je suis comme toi un style simple et facile à vivre mais sans sacrifier sa féminité :)


  • Perfect!!
    Garance j’adore tes pumps please share the brand!!!!!


  • Love jeans too for a simple and casual style. And these shoes!!

  • I agree! I don’t think I’m ever giving up my jeans, and I’ll be sixty soon! Oh how I wish I could wear those amazing heels though. I suppose I could just strike a pose and forget about walking… Cheers

  • Oh la la… loved your hair & heels!

    Have a wonderful new week :)

  • These jeans look perfect and you look gorgeous as always!
    Gap does great basics. I love their stuff.

  • Et les souliers, ils viennent d’où? Trop cannon!

  • Love it! <3


  • My only problem with jeans is that I basically feel uncomfortable in any pant that has a zipper and button in the front. I’ve been into pull-on pants lately that look like a sophisticated pant that can be dressed up or down. I’ve been eliminating jeggings from my wardrobe for this reason. But in theory, I can get behind the jean. I guess I haven’t found my new favourite pair!

  • Jamais essayé les GAP. Moi je prends toujours des uniqlo. Ils sont pile comme j’aime. Et ma couleur préféré le gris. Ça va avec tout du noir comme du rose ou du jaune. Maintenant que j’ai trouvé mon jean, j’avoue j’ai pas envie d’aller chercher ailleurs. Je trouve que c’est ce qu’il y a de pire pour l’ego d’essayer des jeans peu flatteurs, et je ne veux pas revivre ça :-p

  • J’adore cette couleur de jeans! Et cette coupe! <3
    J'ai presque le même mais il vient de chez Asos Petite!!!
    Hâte d'en savoir plus sur ton projet avec Gap!

    Mais c’est quoi ce boul de malade dans ce jean ?!! “Cœurs avec les yeux” “cœurs avec les yeux” !!!
    Tu m’étonnes qu’il veuille t’épouser ton beau ténébrun ;) GRRraaaouuuuu !
    Et mention spécial pour le choix des escarpins <3
    Mon seul soucis avec le nubuck pastel c'est "comment empêcher les traces noirs ?!", si qqn à une réponse miracle…

  • Gap, le meilleur rapport qualité-prix en matière de jeans. D’où ma crainte que l’enseigne disparaisse un jour, parce qu’elle est moins bonne en prêt-à-porter depuis le départ de la super DA

  • You look so beautiful, glowing and happy! And the jeans are amazing, such a great fit (the addition of gorgeous pumps make them look even better!) x

    c’est clair boule de maboule ! :) et jambes infinies tu es belle belle belle Garance

  • Fabulous!

  • I just want to say, Garance you are absolutely stunning and I love LOVE your style!

  • J adore votre tenue moi aussi très jeans et depuis que j ai tester le super skinny je mets plus que cela ! Découvert la marque Ltb ils sont top on les enfilent comme un collant et après on choisit les shoes que l on veut pour donner le style que l on a envie !

    gap jeans are my fave. first for affordability and also for fit.

    love the shoes in the pic. don’t believe I could walk in them but like the angle of the heel seen from the side view. the color really does look like spring.

  • Moi j’adore tes cheveux comme ca ! Tu devrais même envisager de rester dans cet entre deux un moment ! :)

  • I love your hair!!!
    Looking forward to the Gap collaboration.

    super! j’espère qu’il y aura la ligne TALL…..
    j’ai toujours des problèmes (j’habite en europe mais pas en hollande) pour trouver des vêtements (1,m80 pour 60 kg….)

    Moi aussi, c’est mon look préféré. Depuis que Gap ne fait pas plus le Long and Lean, je suis malheureuse… Pas moyen de trouver LE bon jean!

  • Les photos sont géniales, j’adore ton look Garance!


  • Finding the perfect pair of jeans is tough but one of the best feelings! Glad you found yours x

  • Le fin du fin : la couleur du jean et des escarpins assortie. D’autre part, je n’ai que des jeans du Gap qui me vont tres bien (longueur cheville, etroit mais pas skinny, bleu clair et marine.) Je n’aime pas les “skinny” mais au vu de ces photos, je vais (encore) en essayer ! :-)

  • I love the short cut. But I know what you mean, I just cut mine and in a few weeks, I will be gorgeous and you too, haha!
    You look great in your jeans too.

  • Love Gap. Love you. Gap was my first pair ever of jeans, then my first pair ever of “cool jeans” (read: early aughts flares). You were my first ever (and currently, back down to my only) style blog. Fifteen years later and so many pairs of other stuff later, I am ready to go back to my first loves. Heart you for this!

    PS the growing-out haircut is SUPER adorable. I glanced at the photo and didn’t recognize you and wondered who this chic new lady with the to-die-for hair/cut was.

    Damn Girl ,very Hot!With All due Respect,of course!Great Look from head to toe!

  • I actually love the shoes more!

  • Are these jeans made under sustainable and equitable working conditions, or are they made by Bangladeshi children on $2 a day? GAP has a terrible track record with this. I like style, but confine myself to thrift store clothing for this reason.

  • I love skinny jeans and you look great.

  • Please tell Gap that for athletic-looking women, none of their current styles work. Too big in the waist (leading to a big GAP above my butt), but tight as hell in the thigh and calves, which for me are more muscular. I used to love their Always Skinny…they expanded with your waist and my legs are so happy in them, but they got rid of that style. Tried a pair of their True Skinny last week and it was a disaster…they were stuck like glue to my calves.

  • I thought you liked/wore only white and gray jeans? I liked that specificity for you…made sense.

  • I think U r looking gorgeous with such growing hair….really more and more feminine…letting yr fermale side coming out…great!

  • Ravissant Garance (Coupe de cheveux, Skinny Jeans, photos et article compris) :-)

  • Genial ! Superbe ! Ce style vous va à ravir. Les talons aiguilles? Manolo ? Merci et bonne fin d’apres-midi

  • You look great Garance! Has anyone ever commented that your facial features and coloring are similar to Anne Morrow Lindbergh? Looking forward to the Gap photos!

  • Nice ass. I’n growing out my hair so I’m doing the tuck behind the ear thing too. Your hair looks really good.

  • J’adore ce jean est parfait .. la coupe, le couleur ! Hâte d’en découvrir plus sur cette collaboration !
    Concernant ta coupe de cheveux j’y suis passée c’est compliqué l’entre deux mais ça pousse vite promis !

  • Oui les jeans GAP sont super bien coupés , ravie de te voir si belle en jean de cette marque .
    Garance l’amour te rend magnifique !!!!

  • Sublime! J’ai hâte d’en voir plus ! Tu es absolument rayonnante au fait, et j’adore tes chaussures ! Printemps ou pas, le jeans clair te va à merveille !

  • Je trouve que le fait d’avoir assorti la couleur des escarpins avec la couleur du jean est une super idée !
    Et c’est vrai pour moi aussi, quand je veux me sentir à l’aise, rien de mieux qu’un jean skinny (le mieux est un Sézane)

  • Garance,

    If it is in your power, please look into ethically made denim ? Make sure workers get paid fair wages and the chemicals are treated before being released into the water streams ?

    Thank you !

  • love these jeans — and those pumps

  • I am in the middle of growing out my hair and when I saw the picture of your hair my first thought was “Man! I wished my hair looked like that while growing out!” Lookin’ good!

    For the tall ladies out there: uniqlo is great and not too expensive. With my 1.77 , i have no problems and i sometimes even have to shorten them a bit.
    Love the shoes as well, beautiful!

  • Le jean, c’est vraiment le basique qui va avec tout et s’accomode de toutes les situations. Tu as de très belles jambes, donc forcément, le skinny… ^^ Hâte de voir cette collaboration avec Gap !
    Bonne journée,

  • Garance tu es canon !

    Ce jean est fait pour toi, moi je galère toujours à en trouver un, j’irais faire un tour chez Gap. Et puis je trouve que ta nouvelle coupe te vas super bien, c’est à la fois cool et ultra féminin.

    I have three brands of jeans I wear, and GAP is one of them. I could live in jeans, well, and yoga pants….

  • Hi Garance,
    first, you have a great style!!
    I used to love Jeans + simples Tops + Higheels as much as you do :-) but since a while I unfortunally can no longer wear any higheels because of a medical desice, do you have any recommandation for wearing this look without Higheels and still looking sexy and feminine?
    Thank you

  • Je dois dire que ce post tombe tellement à point! Je me cherche désespérément le bon jeans et qui plus est, me durera longtemps. Déçue de ne pas avoir trouvé ma coupe chez Levi’s j’ai tenté GAP et j’ai trouvé le jean parfait: moulant à taille haute. Ne reste qu’à voir combien de temps il me durera (pour le prix) et si il est si parfait ( se rétrécit/ réajuste au lavage, etc).

    J’ai hâte!

  • J’ai hâte de voir la suite, j’aime bien ton look, la combinaison des chaussures et du skinny va tellement bien !

  • Garance, you look so radiant in the first picture, love the in-the-middle-of-growing-out haircut! :) xx

  • Your haircut is perfect on you. Truly. You’re gorgeous and you look happier than ever.

  • Love how light and comfortable your outfit looks!

  • Garance, un question pour toi; tu as un style bien personnel mais as-tu l’impression de t’américaniser de plus en plus dans tes goûts vestimentaires?

  • Depuis des années que je viens sur ce site je ne t ai jamais vu aussi belle et rayonnante qu en ce moment

  • ainhoa March, 4 2016, 6:00 / Reply

    Corsica :) !

  • j’aime beaucoup ce look ! :) on peut être simple et élégante à la fois comme tu nous le montre ici :)

  • I love the blouse! I’m looking for something just like that – so many I’ve been seeing are so thin and cheap looking. That one looks rich and luxurious! Brand please? :)

  • J adore votre tenue moi aussi très jeans et depuis que j ai tester le super skinny je mets plus que cela !

  • i Love jeans but due to working in an office, I can only pray for “Jeans Day Friday” once a while.

  • I love your hair like that and I am not judging, I’ve been growing my hair as well and it is frustrating not looking like a school girl using pins and bows. I found however a great hairdresser and she is just so cool and so good and I trust her and I am quite at ease with growing my hair now. For the first time I don’t care an dI love my shag ;) So you rock girl!
