Baggy jeans have always been there – even when they’ve been hiding in plain sight. The resurgence of baggy jeans has been something of a perfect storm. They’re a style that is synonymous with Princess Diana’s streetwear style in the ‘90s and comes at a time when fashion is becoming more comfort-driven.

Pro-tip: It’s all about getting your proportions right.
Baggy jeans are the new casual staple for your closet. Our number one styling tip is to consider your proportions when putting an outfit together with baggy jeans. Instead of grabbing an oversized hoodie to wear with your baggy jeans, choose a top with a tighter silhouette. You can embrace a Bella Hadid look with a cropped cardigan or jumper. Bomber jackets are another outerwear staple that we love to pair with baggy jeans.
You want to think of your top and bottom half as two separate parts of your outfit that have to complement each other. Sneakers and ankle boots are out go-to choice of footwear when wearing baggy jeans as heels can be problematic if your jeans have a flared hem or a wide leg. The last thing you want to do is trip on your own jeans. Loafers with a chunky sole are the perfect alternative to traditional stilettos and give your jeans an effortlessly chic look.
Baggy jeans aren’t just for a casual weekend. All you need is a structured blazer to take your denim jeans and bring them from a casual look to a business chic outfit. Once you leave the office, switch your blouse out for a cropped top or bodysuit for a night on the town. If you decide to wear a longer top to help layer up with your baggy jeans, tuck the top into your waist to give your figure more definition.
While there is no such thing as the fashion bible – or fashion rules – there are a few things that you want to keep in mind when wearing baggy jeans.
• Keep the waistband of your jeans high. Low-rise and baggy jeans don’t go together. You’re more likely to look like you’re from an old Avril Lavigne music video.
• Focus on the shape of your outfit. If you decide that you’re going to wear looser layers on top, add a belt to help juxtapose and balance the oversized silhouette of your jeans. You can still go for an all-over oversized look, but baggy jeans require a little more thought than their denim counterpart.
