Thought the baggy jeans trend was just for Gen Zs who don’t remember it the first time around? Slouchy denim can actually be really easy to wear and look chic. Here’s how…

Style insiders have done away with their skinnies, mom styles and flares this season for a look that will bring some joyful nostalgia to any ’90s kids out there. Everyone from Isabel Marant to dedicated denim brands like Frame and Agolde has dipped their loose-fitting hems into the trend, and as expected, the high street has followed suit, most notably at Zara, Mango and Abercombie. Scroll on to shop three different ways to wear the trend, from cool evening looks to work-worthy polished and comfy weekend vibes.

Baggy Jeans for the evening…

There are two opposing ways to work a pair of baggy jeans come evening, by playing into its tomboy charm with an oversized shirt and heels, or adding an unexpected hint of sparkle for a cool high/low look. The key to both is in the details, finishing off with more feminine accessories. We love a velvety bag or statement drop earring or, for a more understated feel, scrap your hair back into a low bun and tie it with a ’90s-inspired scrunchy.

Insta starts Camille Charrière and Claire Most give a lesson in how to do the cosiest of weekend looks. Pair your wide-leg light-wash jeans with this season’s hero jacket, the shearling aviator. Zara have multiple options at affordable price points and we especially love this dark, retro-feel brown iteration.

A baseball cap and ’90s classic Gazelles will nod to the trend the first time around.

Baggy jeans for the office? Yes, please. If your workwear code errs on the side of casual rather than smart, pair your slouchy denim with a silk shirt and structured blazer. Add some Studio 54 inspired earrings and you've got a readymade cocktail look.
