Ten years ago, if you had asked us to put on a pair of pants that weren’t skin-tight, we’d have rolled our eyes in disgust. For what seemed like forever, we gave skinny jeans and leggings our undivided attention. That is, until one day when a light appeared at the end of the tunnel and saved us from another year of wearing pants that were uncomfortably tight.
A decade and a handful of half-hearted pant trends later, we’ve finally found a silhouette with the potential to rival the skinny jean era in a real way. Baggy pants, or as some people like to call them, puddle pants, have been on the rise for quite some time now, but it wasn’t until they started popping up on every street style photographer-covered corner in New York, London, Milan, and Paris that the trend became crystal clear. This year, they’re back — and the options are better than ever.
From slouchy, distressed denim to loose, extra-long trousers, check out all of this winter’s baggiest pant styles by clicking through the slideshow ahead.
