There are few garments as polarizing as the skinny jean.
On TikTok, Gen Z is saying that pin-thin denim is officially out of style—yet many millennials, who grew up with the trend in the aughts, still have a strong love for them.
Denim brands such as J Brand, Levi’s, Wrangler, and more continue to sell them as a classic offering; skinny jeans have moved past a fad, and are now a seasonless wardrobe staple.
Yet, in Hollywood, there’s a new hot jean in town that’s threatening to steal the skinny jean’s spotlight entirely: Big, baggy denim.
Over the past few weeks, stylish stars such as Hailey Bieber, Tracee Ellis Ross, Bella Hadid, Katie Holmes, and more have all stepped out in denim that is roomier and wide-legged.
The movement makes sense, given the current times: Over the past year, 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 coats, 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.
Also, they are decidedly much comfier, too so what’s not to love?
