Many nostalgic fashion trends from the 90’s continue – from the return of babydoll clothing to the autumn runway of 2022 to the universality of crop tops and slip dresses – it is not surprising that baggy jeans are also coming back. Loose, low slang straight leg silhouettes are commonly referred to as “dad jeans”, while loose, tapered silhouettes further embody that “mum gin” vibe (this style usually involves high rise and low waist). Some baggy jeans have design elements such as raw hems, distressed finish, and deconstruct material. Whether your style is sporty, bohemian, minimalist, or a combination of all of the above, baggy jeans always have a “cool factor” that makes even the simplest wardrobe basics – from T-shirts to blazers – feel comfortable and practical. For example, a small white tank top with white baggy jeans and a straw sun hat is a nice coastal grandma look that is ready for your next beach day. And while baggy jeans are an obvious choice for casual outings like a solo afternoon walk or a walk to the grocery store, you can dress them up with a corset top and a sharp leather jacket. Which outfits in this oversized style bring a cozy touch, and good news? If your jeans aren’t intentionally designed as a baggy style, just size them up for a sloping look.
What are baggy jeans?
Any pair of skinny or non-leather jeans can be considered baggy. Other items in baggy jeans include mother jeans, boyfriend jeans and dad jeans. The trend is a fixture for fashionistas everywhere, with baggy jeans across the street style scene and appearing frequently during Paris Fashion Week. These styles are also ideal for festive fashion – they allow easy movement for long periods of time spent dancing and jamming under the sun.

Baggy jeans are incredibly versatile. For office-ready attire, wear with a neutral blazer, leather loafers and alloy accessories. Can we recommend a denim jacket for a bold denim-on-denim look? Baggy jeans are ideal for repeated wear, offering endless styling options for all occasions.
