After a decade of reign, we are finally seeing the decay of skinny jeans and trousers. What used to be the go-to piece in any wardrobe is losing popularity, as we watch this Spring Summer season how high-wasted, loose-fitted trousers are coming back in style. And let’s face it, we love how much more comfortable they are! As seen on the SS21 runways, comfort and style come together. This’ season trousers shapes come loose, fancy and easy to wear.
The baggy trousers trend is defined by a more relaxed silhouette, and it is just what we needed after a year in sweat pants. We see this trend in Chanel’s hot-pink denim trousers, in Balenciaga’s loose-denim runway look; combined with blazers, and thick belts. There is a world of possibilities to style the come-back of the season. If we have one lesson for you this season is: when it comes to trousers, bigger will be definitely better.
The years of skinny jeans might be coming to and end. We see the light at the end of the tunnel: comfortable jeans that highlight the silhouette. Balenciaga showed boyfriend sized-up jeans paired with thick belts, Kenzo displayed cargo jeans; and in Chanel runway we saw paper-bag jeans that came with tiny quilted bags strung on chains.
Preen presented us beautifully combined baggy trousers with a ruffled shirt; while Adeam showed us how to be bold while looking beige: a one-shoulder top along with same color trousers. Max Mara went all in for it: baggy trousers with an oversized white shirt, the detail was in the cut-out sleeves.
Chanel presented an absolutely stunning pair of hot-pink baggy trousers, with the delightful detail of the purse-belt.
The perfect accessory to accentuate the silhouette and make every outfit a bit more stylish. We see baggy jeans paired with thick belts in many collections this season, Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton played with belts in their runways.
