5 Style Tips When Wearing Baggy Denim + Why I’m Such a Big Believer That Fashion is a Form of Therapy

 

Dallas fashion blogger over 40 showing 5 different options for how to wear baggy denim.

Denim trends are changing more than ever recently and the one trend that seems to tower over all the others this fall is the infamous BAGGY DENIM TREND.  Are you a fan or not?  I personally am a big fan, however, they must be styled the right way for me to like the way they look on me.  It’s all about creating balance and making sure the baggy jeans don’t end up overtaking your silhouette.  In fact, dressing this way (creating balance in your looks) will actually boost your confidence and help you to feel like a better version of yourself!

I always say that fashion is a form of therapy and sometimes if you’re struggling, starting to dress with confidence can be the spark that lights your inner fire again! Trust me, I’m all about traditional therapy; I’ve had plenty of it in my day, as well as support groups, but it’s also important to dress in a way that makes us feel good. Research has proven this does in fact make us feel better on the inside too!  So, if you’re in the market to not only LOOK GOOD this fall but FEEL GOOD too then keep reading for 5 style tips when wearing baggy denim featured in 2 chic fall looks!

TIP #1: CHOOSE A PAIR OF HIGH WAISTED BAGGY JEANS:

Start off on the right foot by choosing a pair of denim that has the right design elements to give you a flattering silhouette. High-waisted jeans are always flattering since the waistband sits up higher giving the illusion of longer legs. These jeans by Anine Bing are in fact high-waisted which makes them super flattering even though they’re a baggier silhouette. I’m wearing a size 24 and I find they run true to size.  THE BEST PART –  THESE JEANS ARE 10% OFF WITH CODE HEATHERFF!!

Tip #2: ALWAYS WEAR A FITTED TOP AND TUCK IT IN

Whether your preference is a bodysuit (like mine) or a simple tee or tank, the key to styling this look is to tuck in your top. This will create balance in your look because the jeans are baggy on the bottom so you want to keep things fitted on the top! This super chic bodysuit from Good American is the perfect example of a top that pairs well with baggy jeans. I’m wearing an XS for size reference.

TIP #3: MAKE SURE YOUR THIRD LAYER IS STRUCTURED AND NOT TOO OVER-SIZED

If you’ve followed along for any length of time then you know that I’m a big believer in adding a third layer to any look. This is because it automatically brings any look to the next level of chic. When wearing baggy denim, just be sure it’s a fitted or structured jacket like this Balmain blazer I’m wearing. You can take a look at my latest YouTube video titled INVESTMENT PIECES WORTH THE MONEY to see it in action! Choosing a jacket with structure will help create more balance in your look so you don’t end up looking frumpy.  THE BEST PART  – THIS BALMAIN BLAZER IS 10% OFF WITH CODE HEATHERFF!!

BEST DUPE TO THE BALMAIN BLAZER:

If the designer blazer is out of your budget, don’t worry, I always try to find a budget friendly alternative like this double breasted blazer from LilySilk. It has a very similar cut and the same gold detailing as the Balmain blazer, but this option has a much more affordable price tag of around $150. Either choice would be a great option to pair with a baggy denim look!

TIP #4: ALWAYS WEAR A HEEL

Even a low heel will create length in your legs making you look taller and slimmer in baggy jeans, which is why I always recommend pairing baggy jeans with a fabulous pair of heels. Wearing sneakers or flats with baggy denim may end up looking a bit frumpy, however slim booties can be a nice compromise for the colder months. The exact heels I’m wearing are sold out, but I’ve linked a pair I love just as much that will have you rocking your baggy denim look!

TIP #5: ONLY WEAR BAGGY DENIM IF IT MAKES YOU FEEL CONFIDENT

My final tip for how wear baggy denim: Only wear them if you FEEL good in them! I always talk about how what you wear should make you FEEL good and like the best version of yourself. So, pay attention to how you FEEL when you put on a pair of baggy denim. If you don’t feel good, then don’t wear them, it really is that simple!
