TIP # 1: PAIR WITH A FITTED TOP AND TUCK IT IN:

When it comes to how to style baggy jeans, creating balance in your look is key. Since the jeans are baggy and oversized, choosing a fitted top or jacket is absolutely crucial. Tucking in your top will also do wonders to accentuate your waist and keep you from drowning in material. This off-the-shoulder top by Free People is the perfect example of an ideal style of top to wear with baggy jeans and I’m wearing an XS.

TIP #2: MAKE SURE THE JEANS ARE HIGH-WAISTED:

Baggy jeans with a high waist are an absolute MUST. Otherwise, you can end up looking quite a bit shorter than you really are, and who wants that? These Frame jeans have a 12-inch rise so they make your legs look miles long since the rise sits ABOVE your belly button! I’m wearing a size 24 and they fit true to size.

TIP #3: ADD A CROPPED OR FITTED THIRD LAYER:

Wearing a slightly cropped third layer (aka a jacket or cardigan) is important because it creates balance, just as wearing a fitted top does! If you choose an oversized jacket, for example, the fitted top underneath is completely canceled out and you will end up being overwhelmed by fabric. This cashmere cardigan from Club Monaco is cropped, so it would make a perfect 3rd layer over a fitted top or bodysuit. I’m wearing an XS and I find it fits true to size.

ANINE BING BAGGY JEANS:

These jeans by Anine Bing are by far my FAVORITE pair of baggy denim! I love them because they have the baggy style without being TOO baggy. I also find the distressing to be just the right amount and in the perfect spots. I’m wearing a size 24 in this all-star pair of denim.

TIP #4: ALWAYS WEAR A HEEL OF SOME SORT:

Even if it’s a 2-inch kitten heel, wearing a heel of some sort is crucial when wearing baggy denim. Any flat footwear won’t help elongate your legs and will make the baggy denim appear too long for you in some cases. Adding heel height helps negate this effect and I don’t know about you, but a fabulous pair of heel always puts a spring in my step! These open-toed heeled sandals from Nordstrom are a great option because the low heel height makes them comfortable and very wearable.

TIP #5: TRY DRAPING YOUR JACKET:

If you’ve followed along with me for any length of time then you know that I LOVE to wear my jackets draped over my shoulders. That’s because draping your jacket is a little trick that shows off your silhouette and accentuates your waistline! This effect will also help to create balance when wearing baggy jeans. Wearing your jacket draped is one of my number one style tips guaranteed to elevate all of your looks, and this coated denim jacket from Evereve would be a great option to give this trick a try!

TIP #6: ADDING GLAM ACCESSORIES IS CRUCIAL:

Baggy jeans can be a bit more on the masculine side so pairing some super glam accessories can make your entire look appear more feminine and sexy! I personally love to wear this YSL handbag with almost any look I create and it’s always a winner. A few stunning pieces of jewelry like this YSL chain necklace or this Gorjana coin necklace can also go a long way toward offsetting any masculine vibes.

TIP #7: TO TIP TOE YOUR WAY INTO THIS TREND TRY A BLACK PAIR OF BAGGY DENIM:

Wearing a dark wash pair of black baggy jeans versus a ripped light wash pair allows you to tip-toe your way into this trend since faded black denim is more subtle. These jeans are by Veronica Beard and they are hands-down my favorite pair of black baggy jeans. They’ re high-waisted, super slimming and this faded black wash goes with everything! I’m wearing a size 24 in these starter baggy jeans.
