Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some frequently asked questions about how to wear baggy pants, how to style them, and what looks good with them. Check them out!
Q. How do you make baggy jeans look cute?
A. This is a great question and it’s one we have probably all had at one point or another. Styling baggy jeans so that they look cute is not as tricky as some might think. It’s just a matter of keeping a few things in mind.
- Remember there are different types of baggy jeans. Some baggy jeans are merely loose-fitting. Some are very fitted around the waist; others are baggy from waist to hem. Experiment with a few different styles (if you’re not sure where to start, simply get your hands on some oversized jeans and start there) until you find the ones you like best. Thrifting for gently used jeans is a fabulous way to find baggy jeans at a low price as well.
- Remember baggy jeans look best when they are worn with close-fitting tops. Think crop tops, bandeaus, and bodysuits. If you go loose on top when you are already wearing baggy jeans, you risk looking sloppy and unkempt. If you don’t like showing too much skin, simply throw a short jacket or open, plaid shirt over your top. You can knot the plaid shirt at your waist as well to make sure you keep a tighter silhouette on top.
- If you do want to wear something a little looser on top, consider a cropped sweater or a sweater knotted at the smallest part of your waist or a graphic tee knotted at the waist.
- Try and shoot for a high-waisted pair of baggy jeans or mid-rise. Low-rise is simply not a good option for jeans in general.
- You can also try turning up the hem of your jeans, especially if they’re super long, or getting a pair that stops just above the ankle. This is a good way to break up the width of the look and add some dimension.
Q. What do you wear with baggy pants?
A. Depending on the type of baggy pant, you have a little more versatility than with baggy jeans. You can rock some Palazzos, paper bag pants, or brand-name joggers and try them out with a variety of tops and accessories. As a rule, try to wear shoes with a heel… unless your baggy pants come to a tapered ankle, as with joggers. A little heel of some sort will help balance the loose pant leg.
However, this isn’t always the case, as in outfits #6, #7, and #8. A chunky sneaker, ballet flat, or thick-soled fashion sneaker can all look fabulous with a loose-pant style.
Q. What tops to wear with baggy jeans?
A. A close-fitting top or blouse is always a safe bet but this isn’t a hard and fast rule. You can rock a baggy tee, an off-the-shoulder top, or even a tank with relative ease… but we do recommend tucking your shirt in! This is an easy way to keep from “losing” your body beneath the layers and keeping a general sense of your silhouette. If you hate adjusting a tucked-in top throughout your day, give a bodysuit a try! We happen to love bodysuit turtlenecks as they provide coverage without sacrificing chic style.
