Life After Skinny Jeans

Collage of Women Wearing Styles of Baggy and Loose Jeans

Straight. Wide. Cropped flare. Non-skinny jeans are on the rise. It’s time to opt for looser styles and make way for the next it-fits. If you’re skinny-jean obsessed and nervous about exploring new women’s jean styles, we’ve highlighted four looks that will inspire you to change it up.

Our ‘90s-inspired Dad Jeans are sure to be a  new favorite. Slouchy at the waist with a straight leg, they’re the perfect everyday fit. For an effortlessly cool denim-on-denim look, pair them with our Dad Trucker Jacket (featuring a throwback elastic hem and sleeve cuffs) to show off the high-rise waistline of the jeans. Finish it off with delicate heels to balance out the proportions.

The rich color and lightweight fabric make our Ribcage Wide Leg Pants a great transition piece from summer to fall. Show off the rise and waist with a tucked-in shirt. We love the contrast of the corduroy’s wide wale with a delicate silk top and white sneakers.

One of the perks of loose-fitting jeans? You have more room to tuck in sweaters and show off your waist. Pictured here: contrasting colors and thoughtful accessories. Go for similar tones if you’re mixing colors and prints and have one neutral base, like these light wash Ribcage Wide Leg Jeans.

With the Ribcage Cropped Flare, you get the lengthening effect of a high rise with a playful kick flare leg, which flatters any figure (see, there is life after skinny jeans). Wear them with a waist-highlighting cropped hoodie and your favorite night-out heels.
