Screen Shot 2023 08 17 at 6.50.12 PM

Tilly's has got a traditional (and affordable) pair of light wash blue baggy jeans that are baggy, but not overtly so as they still have a relatively slim and tapered design. These jeans come with the usual—five pockets, a traditional belt loop, zip fly, and the whole nine yards. You may have to size down if you boast a small frame as these tend to run slightly big. Other than that, you should be good to go.


How to select baggy jeans:

Not all baggy jeans are made the same, here are some things to keep in mind:

Fit/Style: As you can see from our selections, there's various different types of baggy jeans and cuts/styles you can choose from. Some baggy jeans are tapered below the knee to create a more narrow look, while others flare out to really emphasize that oversized look. To that point, some baggy jeans are really big/bulky to add to the overall baggy look of the jeans (which is what you saw a lot of in the 1990s and 2000s). Really baggy jeans can mean be multiple things in one, and can blend together multiple elements, it just depends on how baggy you specifically want your jeans to be.

Material: Most baggy jeans are made with either true denim material or cotton/cotton mixtures. The latter is what's used more and is have proven to be very comfortable (and more comfortable than just 100%. denim).

Length: While there's definitely some baggy jeans that can run some slightly below the knee or right around the calf area, there's a good percentage of people that light baggy jeans long enough to cover their shoes. This definitely isn't a hard and steadfast rule, but since most prefer it this way, most baggy jeans are made with that notion in mind. If you want to get that stacked look over your pants, you'll want a longer inseam than you would usually opt for so that the pants crease over your pants, as you can see in some of the examples below.

How to style baggy jeans:

Baggy jeans are one of the most versatile pieces out there as there's a number of different looks you can create. Seeing as though the height of their popularity was during the 2000s, you can wear your jeans with a jersey, white t-shirt, and Air Force 1s if you want a hip hop look. If you want to modernize your jeans, however, you can wear them with a hoodie, denim jacket, a flannel shirt, or a regular long sleeve shirt along with any short tee of your choice. If in need of slightly professional style, you can rock baggy jeans with a blazer or suit jacket, and when the weather is cold, you can pair them a variety of fall/winter coats and jackets. Timbs and other similar winter boots look good with baggy jeans too.
