Before you come looking for me, listen to me. Jeans are definitely the backbone of my wardrobe most days, but lately I’ve been putting them aside for an item that’s just as versatile, understated, and cool as my beloved denim, but much fresher and current , in my humble opinion. The trend in question? Baggy pants.
Take a look at spring/summer 2022 fashion shows and you will notice a strong theme across the collections: Pants become roomier. Whether it’s the relaxed fit suit pants that have become our go-to staples or newer styles like cargos and parachute pants, all signs point to the baggy pants trend reigning, even among the most classic style-devoted Instagram crowd. (You look, French girls.) Much to my surprise, fashion people are really selling me on this once-controversial trend and reinforcing my decision to put my denim aside this spring.
Scroll on to shop the loose-fitting pants I’m looking at if you’re in the mood to freshen up. your wardrobe too.
