Before you come for me, hear me out. Jeans are definitely the backbone of my wardrobe most of the time, but lately, I’ve been putting them on hold for an item that’s just as versatile, low-key, and cool as my beloved denim but is much fresher and more current, in my humble opinion. The trend in question? Baggy pants.
Take a glance at the spring/summer 2022 runways and you’ll notice a strong theme throughout the collections: Pants are getting roomier. Whether it’s the relaxed-fit suiting trousers that have become our staples or newer styles like cargos and parachute pants, all signs point to the reign of the baggy-pants trend—even among the Instagram crowd most devoted to classic style. (Looking at you, French girls.) Much to my surprise, fashion people are really selling me on this once-controversial trend and solidifying my decision to put my denim on hold this spring.
Ahead, scroll to shop the baggy pants I’m eyeing if you’re in the mood to freshen up your wardrobe as well.
