We all love a good pair of denims. There is no doubt that it is an essential piece in everyone’s wardrobe. From skinny jeans to jeggings to flared jeans, baggy jeans are back on a high track recently. They started popping up on every street style photographer-covered corner in New York, London, Milan and Paris and now they have become the most popular pants among all celebrities and influencers.
Baggy jeans are not only comfortable, but they are surprisingly chic when paired with the right accouterments. However, keep in mind that baggy pants may not be appropriate in some settings if you have difficulty in styling it well. Be careful when it comes to formal events you are attending.
What are baggy jeans?
Baggy jeans are a vintage-inspired, wide-leg silhouette with a bit more volume in the legs than straight-leg jeans. It is a style that was extremely popular in the ‘90s. These jeans hug the waistline and loosely taper down the leg for a sophisticated cool look. Whether you go with something wide-leg and ‘90s-inspired, or opt for a straighter, elongated silhouette, these jeans will definitely rock on almost every outfit.
However, balancing your overall silhouette is key. It is important to create a shape with your whole outfit. You can wear a belt to balance the bagginess on bottom if you wear loose layers on top, unless you go with an oversized look. Next, get some height by pairing your baggy jeans with low-height heels to keep ultra-laidback denim from seeing too lax.

How to wear loose and baggy jeans
Style it with cardigan
Rock your baggy jeans with a cute crop cardigan to add a sensual touch and offset the masculine vibe of the baggy jeans. You can keep some of the buttons unfastened, making the daytime look appropriate for a night time affair. Cropped and waist-length woollen tops look especially great with high-rise jeans and accentuate your waistline and curves in a flattering way, so make sure you try them out!
Style it with blazer
Blazer fits well with almost every pair of jeans. It can be your lifesaver when you need to transform a low-effort outfit into something that is polished and classy. The same holds true when you add a tailored menswear jacket with baggy jeans. It will instantly pull the look together, adding a refined touch to an otherwise casual look. Don’t forget to style them with a pair of neutral tone heels to give the final touch of the look.
Style with tucked-in top
Don't like to wear cropped style tops? Try tucked in your clothes at the waist. The tucked-in, all around the waistband look is another key to the high-waist, baggy jean style and contrasts with the oversized tee shirt or sweater look. Keep in mind that you should not tuck in clothes which are bulky and chunky. A statement belt will flatter your figure and level up your whole look.
Style with graphic tee
The graphic tee trend is back. Matching your jeans with an oversized or cropped graphic tee will create a more sporty, 2000’s vibe and trendy look. You can add some feminine accessories such as hair clips and huggie hoops to look less boyish. These will also give you a fashion-forward vibe and complete your look effortlessly.
