You Won’t Believe It – But Baggy Jeans Are Back In Style!

Changing Up The Jean-Drobe

Are skinny jeans dead!? No! But they are moving aside for other popular denim styles to shine through! The baggy jeans trend has emerged and I was very excited to try it! I love adding new pieces to my jean-drobe! What do you think…love it, hate it, want to try it?

I just did a post on five denim styles that will make you want to ditch your skinny jeans here.

Why Baggy Jeans?

Remember baggy jeans from the 90’s??? I sure do. I remember wearing a pair by Levi’s that I absolutely LOVED in college. I traded my friend, Karen who was studying abroad with me in Paris, for her ripped up, baggy Levi’s. I was SO psyched to wear them. I wore them for many years before finally retiring them. I kinda wish I still had them. For those of you who are getting bored of skinny jeans or maybe you don’t find them flattering for your body shape, you are going to love this new denim style! Baggy jeans have grown in popularity throughout 2019 and I don’t think they’re going anywhere for a while. Baggy jeans are essentially oversized boyfriend jeans. They’re roomier throughout the hips, butt, and legs, but fit the waist like normal jeans.

These exact jeans are by AGOLDE. I love the ripped knees, super high rise, and slight fading. This is my first pair of baggy jeans since those college days, and I’m excited about the change. Here is a very similar pair for less!!

How To Wear Baggy Jeans

Since these jeans are so baggy, I’d keep the volume on top to a minimum. I’m wearing a sweater, but because it’s cropped, it works! Whatever you wear on top, keep it simple. Think a streamlined sweater, tee, or blouse tucked or half-tucked in. For a third layer, throw on a moto jacket or scarf. There are tons of ways to style these jeans!
They’re a great way to go for a casual look with booties and sneakers. OR you can dress them up with sleek pointed-toe pumps or booties! In the spring/summer you can throw on some strappy sandals too!

At first, you are going to resist these because it’s our nature. New things like this are HARD to accept at first. Think about how you first felt about ankle booties or even skinny jeans. I know many women refused to wear either for years thinking they would come and go, but they are still going strong. Over-sized jeans are going to continue to grow in popularity. I think this is the case because skinnies have been SO popular for SO long and fashion is cyclical. It’s time for a silhouette change!

  1. Good evening!

    This is a question regarding being slightly short waisted. I recognize high waisted jeans are trending, but I feel being short waisted and busty, that the waistband is right under my breasts. How do I embrace the trend? I think I am rectangular shaped otherwise. I am 5’4″ and a size 4.

    thank you

  2. I don’t think I like all of those styles but they sure are nice for women with bigger thighs and calves. Skinny jeans can just be too tight and uncomfortable.

  3. Two hesitatIons: 1) baggy jeans may Make my flat buM flatter. 2)How will they work with all my ankle boots? Wear them oVer the boot? Cuff them? But can you get a good cuff woth baggy jeans?

  4. There’s room in our closets for many denim styles. but it always should be about fit and flatter. this high-rise baggy – which is a classic saturday night live mom-jean – does little to flatter a women’s figure. hard pass for me.

    1. Hi Francine, You are correct. The most important thing is to wear what fit and flatters your body. Some people will look great in high-rise baggy jeans and some won’t.

  5. Hi eRin: My initial response was oh ugh, mom jeans, again pLus the deconstructed look is so unappealing to a 71 year old. However, when took the time to look at the black agolde jeans-wow would buy in a heartbeat( if thE price point was more reasonable) sUch a chic profile with Heels.

    1. Hi Carol, these looks can be worn at any age. You just have to find the version that works best for you. The AGOLDE jeans are great.

  6. i think Fashion and style are two different things. Fashion is change just for the sake of change. companies’ MARKETING based on their FINANCIAL BOTTOM LINEs promote Fashion CHANGES. Style is change to find items that help us be the best version of ourselves. Style is promoted by our desire to find and project beauty and excellence… which can also be fun. Skinny jeans, Boyfriend jeans, baggy jeans can all look great on the right body types for each. the CHALLENGE is to remember that there is no “onE style fits all”.

    1. You are correct Carole. Not all styles will work for everyone. You have to find what works best for your body and your style. Hopefully the information presented in this post helps you find what is right for you.
