Kim Kardashian may have received a lot of attention in the style department for being a Demna convert and muse to the designer. But there’s another Balenciaga celebrity fan you should be taking style notes from: Justin Bieber.
The singer has been turning up in one Balenciaga fit after another – and most of them involve him dressed in ultra-loose and ultra-comfy baggy jeans from the label. Indeed, the XXL denim silhouette may be the latest to join the onslaught of 2000s-inspired fashion trends as of late, including itty bitty baby tees, mini duffle bags and ginormous platform shoes.
For S/S ’22, Molly Goddard teamed up baby dresses with exaggerated proportions with oversized denims as a nostalgic nod to the clothes she wore as a child.
The appeal of size juxtaposition so prominent in Y2K fashion has clearly not waned. A flurry of designers appeared to ditch the skinny jean in favour of the oversized aesthetic on the Spring/Summer 2022 runways, including Molly Goddard, MSGM and New York fashion wunderkind Peter Do.
With a good number of style variations, it’s easier than ever to get a well-suited pair of baggy jeans for yourself. Ahead, are our top picks of the bunch.
