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!
