Gigi Hadid Wore the Anti–Skinny Jean Trend That's Getting All the Buzz

Year after year, without fail, people get really excited about skinny jeans once the weather cools off. Topics of interest include what new styles to buy, what to wear with them, and which celebs are wearing them. But this season, there's a new trend in town to distract us all from skinnies, high-waisted baggy jeans, and it's steadily building lots of buzz. Now that Gigi Hadid has worn the trend for a high-profile occasion (her Victoria's Secret Fashion Show fitting), we think it's safe to say that the loose-jeans buzz is practically deafening.

Our editor Michelle Scanga recently reported that her baggy, high-waisted jeans are getting tons of compliments as of late, and she's calling them "my new go-tos for the office, weekend, and everything in between this fall."

Hadid, who is quite the sartorial expert, styled her baggy vintage jeans to a T: with a tucked in T-shirt (which also urged everyone to vote), an oversize blazer, and sock boots, which fit perfectly with the proportions of the jeans. 

Keep scrolling to see how Hadid (and a few other stylish women) styled loose jeans for yourself, and shop a few pairs that we're currently obsessing over.
