Yes, I'm here again to talk to you about my favorite fabric of all time: Denim. I've always been a steadfast lover of this classic, versatile look, but my devotion was called into question during the pandemic: "Wear sweats!' people said. "Jeans aren't comfortable!" they said. And do you know what I said? I said, "Have you ever owned a pair of baggy jeans?"

Yes, my friends, you can both look put-together in denim and sit comfortably on your couch all day. With the advent of baggy styles like boyfriend, wide-leg, and slouch jeans, there is no longer any need to feel like you need to constrict your legs to look good. So, without further ado, I welcome you to check out some of my favorite baggy jeans below. You'll be trading in your sweatpants in no time.
