The French cool girl look goes something like this: super-skinny jean, heel, slouchy top, sharp blazer. But for fall, Isabel Marant is pushing a different silhouette—ultra-baggy, high-waisted pants. One might call it Amelia Earhart chic. A cursory glance through the entire collection reveals that all the pants are loose and many are even puffy.

If big pants aren't your taste, Marant also included some very cool boots, her go-to mini skirts in a bunch of shimmery materials, oversize sweaters and coats, and even a flannel. The overall effect was relaxed and woodsy, with lots of dark colors and nubby fabrics. Will Marant's It girls wear these pants, though?
