There’s no denying that we adore denim. There is nothing quite like discovering the ideal pair of jeans as an important wardrobe component, which we all know is like finding a needle in a haystack. Designers continue to enhance the jean with new design techniques and styles, from appealing flared jeans and popular mom jeans to innovative, sustainable denim. This spring, a new hero style has emerged: the baggy jean. And we believe it will persist much beyond the summer months. That being stated, you’ll need to understand how to put together appealing baggy jeans ensembles.
While we’ve spent the most of the year embracing at-home fashion with large, loose-fitting apparel and rich knitwear sets, we refuse to leave denim—unless it’s skinny jeans, which TikTok and Gen Z have labelled a fashion faux pas. But it only makes place for the more cosier baggy jean to enter our closet.
Baggy Jeans: What Are They?
The baggy jean, a popular design in the 1990s, is a vintage-inspired, wide-leg silhouette with a bit more volume in the legs than the straight-leg jean. For a sophisticated cool aesthetic, baggy jeans hug the waistline and lightly taper down the leg. Baggy jeans have proven to be the at-home jean due to their loose fit.
Baggy jeans have become a flexible fashion staple, from high-waisted baggy jeans coupled with a fitting T-shirt and menswear-inspired jacket to a dark wash baggy jean dressed with beautiful Prada slingback heels. We’ve rounded together our top baggy jeans ensembles to inspire your spring wardrobe.
Transitional Baggy Jeans Outfit
Here’s the ideal transitional attire. Choose a grey baggy jean, such as Isabel Marant’s Boyfriend jeans, for the last chilly days of spring and the sweltering summer months. Complete the style with additional neutral pieces such as a boxy white T-shirt layered beneath a black leather jacket for a casual-cool look that never seems out of season.
Medium Wash Denim Baggy Jeans Outfit
Sometimes a traditional, medium denim wash is all that’s required. Medium wash baggy jeans are possibly the most adaptable type of baggy jean; they can easily be dressed up for a more polished, sophisticated look or dressed down for a daily wear. Pair your loose jeans with a bright-colored silk shirt and Saint Laurent sunglasses for a feel-good look inspired by style queen Aimee Song.
Minimalist Baggy Jeans Outfit
We love simple style, which is why we’re crazy with this loose jean suit. Keep it simple by making baggy jeans the focal point. Wear them with a black T-shirt and gold jewellery accents, such as a classic Hermès clock or chain-link necklace.
White Baggy Jeans Outfit
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: monochromatic styles are a stylist’s secret weapon for quickly elevating any appearance. To achieve an effortlessly stylish look, pair white loose pants with monochrome pieces such as a white shirt and a neutral-hued jacket. A pair of contrasting strappy sandals will take the ensemble to new, elegant heights.
Light Wash Baggy Jeans Outfit
If you prefer a lighter wash, Madewell’s Vintage Full-Length Jeans are a must-have this season. These light wash jeans are the ideal pale blue and can match with practically anything. We recommend pairing them with an oversized button-down and a cable knit sweater for an off-duty style that’s just as comfortable as your favourite leggings and sweater WFH outfit.
