It’s no secret that the baggy jeans trend (and allll things Y2K) are back with a vengeance… and we are SO here for it. While we love our skinny jeans (and still aren’t ready to put them down), there’s just something so exciting about a new fashion trend.
As the denim experts in the room, we couldn’t resist putting together a trend report with everything you need to know…. Where did baggy jeans even come from? What celebs are into the trend? Where can you get a pair? We’re here to cover it all!
Where Did The Baggy Jeans Trend Come From?
Baggy pants first became popular in the 1990s and early 2000’s due to the hip hop influences at the time. Hip hop was becoming the most popular type of music AND digital media was booming for the first time. Not only were popular rappers, breakdancers, and skateboarders wearing baggy pants, but music videos and trends were spreading via MTV and the internet.
You might be thinking… but why did it come back? Well, when it comes to fashion trends, what goes around comes back around. Trends tend to recycle themselves every few decades. Plus, comfort became a top priority for shoppers during the pandemic and most people find looser fitting denim much more comfortable than structured, body contouring jeans.
