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.
Size-inclusive, L.A.-made brand Just Black Denim designed this rinse wash pair as an ode to late '90s fashion, and it certainly shows.
We love sustainable brand Warp + Weft. This pair comes in three colors―black, white, and classic blue―so you can flaunt the baggy jeans look in any and every season.
This 100% cotton denim, along with the jeans' loose fit, will keep you comfortable all through the day.
Indigenous-owned brand Ginew sells premium-quality, ethically made denim made to flatter both genders, and nothing exemplifies that better than this functional black pair.
These mid-rise jeans are perfect for anyone looking to mix up their normal high-waisted routine. Plus, DL 1961 makes all their pieces using water-conserving, eco-friendly methods.
The pockets and decorative seams on this pair will give any outfit a geometric, structured vibe that's sure to offset any soft, flowing fabric (think cashmere, satin, or silk) beautifully.
Can you tell I love lightwash jeans? Pair these with some chunky sneakers, and you're off to the races.
Who says baggy jeans need to look masculine? Lighten the look up with a fun, girly pair, like this heart-printed one from Pacsun.
This pair, with it's tight waistline and tapered hems, is designed to accentuate your waist and give the appearance of an hourglass figure.
Why not get colorful? We love this green for its ability to suit any season and easily add a bit of flair to an otherwise plain outfit.
The long, dramatic flair on these jeans creates a graceful silhouette that'll look especially great with a form-fitting shirt or bodysuit.
Think: JNCO jeans, but a little less dramatic.
Why choose between floral and checkered when you can have both?
Black jeans always look classic, and match with everything. Try out this roomy pair, with it's tasteful, well-placed rips and soft cotton feel.
