If there’s a new term that needs to be added to our fashion dictionary, it’s definitely ‘slouchy jeans’. This trouser style has hit the accelerator and gone from 0 to 100 in a matter of weeks to become one of the hottest new trends of the season
. If you’re not familiar with the concept yet, pay attention!
Slouchy jeans, which are sometimes referred to as ‘gaucho jeans’, feature a high rise and a fitted waist, with a wide- or balloon-leg design that tapers again at the ankle
. You could say that this is the logical extension of how trouser styles have evolved over the past few seasons, since mom jeans have been especially prominent. They probably remind you of the typical styles worn back in the ‘80s—an era that drew on exaggerated, voluminous silhouettes for inspiration—which are still on trend even today.
The most important thing to keep in mind, if you want to wear your gaucho jeans well, is that they have two main distinguishing features: a cinched waist and tapered ankles
. To avoid a ‘bloated’ look, it’s important to draw attention to these two areas. To do this, make sure you choose a model that fits well at the waist. And make sure to choose bright, eye-catching belts that’ll go great with these jeans. Also, leave the ankle visible. If the leg still looks a bit wide, you can roll up the hems a few times.
When it comes to mixing and matching, follow the same guidelines as with any other pair of jeans: they go with pretty much anything!
So you can choose your top according to the occasion.
There are, however, a couple of key pairings that have been trending this season: slouchy jeans with a balloon-sleeve blouse
, for example. This is—without a doubt—a match made in heaven! You could also opt for a shirt
or a top in a bright colour, like pink or red, and team it with your favourite pair of dark blue slouchy jeans. Finish off the look with some low ankle boots. Perfect! And 100% on trend.
You could also go for a cropped top
to show off the cinched waist. Throw a blazer on and then complete the look with some gorgeous sandals and a belt. But you can also use these jeans for everyday looks, since, as we said, they go with just about anything. You have plenty of options: loose sweaters, romantic blouses, long sleeve T-shirts or cropped sweatshirts... Whatever suits you best!
