25 Ways to Style Baggy Jeans With Everything, From Blazers to Crop Tops
With so much nostalgic '90s and 2000s fashion continuing to trend — from the return of miniskirts and lug-sole platforms to the ubiquity of crop tops and slip dresses — it's no surprise baggy jeans are also making a comeback. Slouchy, low-slung, straight-leg silhouettes are usually called "dad jeans," while loose, tapered silhouettes embody more of that "mom jean" vibe (this style typically features high rises and nipped waists). Some baggy jeans incorporate design elements like raw hems, distressed finishes, and deconstructed materials.
Whether your style is sporty, bohemian, minimalist, or a mix of all of the above, outfits with baggy jeans always have a certain "cool factor" that makes even the simplest wardrobe basics — from T-shirts to blazers — feel laid-back and practical. An understated white tank top, for instance, paired with white baggy jeans and a straw sun hat is the quintessential coastal-grandmother look that's ready for your next beach day. And while baggy jeans are an obvious choice for casual outings like solo afternoon strolls or grocery-store runs, you can dress them up with a corset top and sharp leather jacket. These oversize styles bring a relaxed touch to any outfit, and the good news? If your jeans aren't intentionally designed as a baggy style, simply size up for a slouchy look.
What Are Baggy Jeans?
Any pair of jeans that isn't skinny or fitted can be considered baggy. Other terms for baggy jeans include mom jeans, boyfriend jeans, loose-fit jeans, and dad jeans. The trend is a fixture for fashion-lovers everywhere, with baggy jeans making frequent appearances across the street style scene during Fashion Week. These styles are also ideal for festival fashion — they facilitate easy movement for those long hours spent dancing and jamming under the sun.
How to Style Baggy Jeans
Baggy jeans are incredibly versatile. For an office-ready outfit, wear them with a neutral blazer, leather loafers, and mixed metallic accessories. Dare we suggest a denim jacket for a bold denim-on-denim look? Baggy jeans are ideal for wearing on repeat, offering endless styling options for all occasions.
