Over the years, my collection of high-waisted jeans has become *way* too excessive. Don’t get me wrong, I still love them a lot, but I’ve recently begun expanding into low-er rise styles. You probably won’t catch me in ultra low-rise jeans anytime soon, as I’m easing into the trend with a tried-and-true mid-rise silhouette. Enter my new obsession, the Levi’s Baggy Dad Women’s Jeans ($108). I saw Emma Chamberlain wearing them, and the rest was history. They’re so comfortable and stylish that I’m convinced everyone needs a pair, but more on that ahead.
Levi’s was kind enough to send me a sample of these jeans in “Hold My Purse – Medium Wash” — a classically cool blue jean — and I fell in love at fist sight. Slipping them on was equally as exciting because they’re really soft. I teamed them with a crop top and platforms and felt trendy yet timeless (which is my go-to fashion philosophy these days).
The most important thing worth noting about these jeans is that they run a little big. I ordered my usual size 28 but found that they were a bit loose on my hips. For that reason, I recommend sizing down. Shoppers agree: the “average fit rating” falls in between “true to size” and “very big.”
These jeans are best for those looking for a pair of comfy mid-rise jeans that epitomize casual-cool style. As the name states, they’re definitely on the baggy side, so I don’t advise the investment if you’re not into the oversize look. But if you’re low-rise curious obsessed like I am, this is the perfect segue away from high-waist silhouettes.
- These jeans come in sizes 23–34.
- They come in five different washes.
- They’re made of 79 percent cotton and 21 percent Tencel lyocell.
- Per the brand, machine wash cold on a normal cycle, inside out with like colors, and tumble dry on medium.
