Over the past few months, stylish stars such as Emily Ratajkowski, Tracee Ellis Ross, Jennifer Lawrence, Katie Holmes, and more have all stepped out in denim that is more roomy and wide-legged. The movement makes sense, given the current times: Over the last couple of years, we’ve all gravitated towards dressing for comfort, so why wouldn’t we approach our jeans that way? Celebrities have styled the big jeans in a variety of chic ways, offsetting their slouchy look with tailored blazers, sky-high stilettos, and the It bags. Whereas the skinny jean dresses up and streamlines any outfit, the baggy jean has the opposite effect and gives any outfit a cool, effortless feel. Plus, they are decidedly much comfier, too—what’s not to love?
Of course, not all baggy jeans are created equal. Some offer cozy wiggle room throughout the entire pant leg, while others fit a bit more snug on the hips and flare at the ankles. If you’re into a classic, trouser-like fit, slip on Khaite’s perfectly baggy Ian jeans or Magda Butrym’s pleated white denim pants. For an undeniably comfy feel that’ll rival any sweatpant, grab a pair of Rag & Bone’s silky soft Liquid Miramar pants. They’re just as freeing to wear, but offer the elevated coolness of a great pair of jeans.
