Loose-fit jeans marry comfort and style for a look that’s effortlessly cool. Whether you’re looking for a pair of easy boyfriend jeans, the extra-baggy denim that’s leading the TikTok pack, or even a chic pair of wide-leg jeans that manage to feel tailored yet comfortable, the
best loose-fit jeans are worth adding to your wardrobe ASAP.
Options have exploded recently if you’re shopping for a
baggier denim silhouette, from trendy balloon cuts to flares to rib-cage-kissing high rises. Jeans with distressing won’t feel as perennially classic as a pair of pristine denim, but ripped jeans are certainly having a moment , and everyone needs at least one scuffed-up pair for that lived-in texture.
When you need jeans that can dress up or down, you’ll want to strike a balance between that easy fit and more tailored lines. Consider a trouser-like cut that is looser in the leg and more fitted at the waist or a pair with sophisticated flared legs and self-tie waist. Looking for something cute but a little less adventurous? Try a
denim jogger or even a pleated mom jean for its understated details and simple lines.
No matter which cut you choose, looser denim is actually surprisingly versatile to style. Pairs can be worn with a hoodie and sneaks when you’re off-duty — then just swap out your fleece for a blazer or cropped top, add a statement shoe, and you’re ready for going out.
