Whether dressed up like Meghan Markle or dressed down like Elle Fanning, baggy pants are absolutely everywhere right now. Slouchy, loose, voluminous, roomy, sagging—whatever you call it, there's no doubt that the controversial trend has taken over the fashion set. Yes, it's sometimes combined with the dreaded low-rise look, but there are plenty of options if you'd rather stick to high-waisted slouchy pants.
Hailey Bieber loves a baggy pair of jeans with flat loafers, and even Kate Middleton has gotten in on the look via relaxed trousers and pointy-toe pumps fit for a duchess. Scroll down to see which shoes celebrities are wearing with on-trend baggy pants and jeans and shop similar pieces for yourself.
1. Flat Loafers
Loafers are a great choice to wear with your baggy trousers and jeans. They're super versatile and add a polished look to the casual pants.
You can never go wrong with a classic pair of sneakers. Kaia Gerber likes wearing her baggy pants with white sneakers, while Bella Hadid prefers a black pair.
Copy Zoë Kravitz and style your baggy pants with a pair of flip-flops. There are so many versions on the market for summer, but I'm partial to the chunky ones.
4. Pointy-Toe Pumps
On the dressier end of the spectrum, pumps look fantastic when paired with slouchy trousers—just look to Rihanna and Middleton as proof.
Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
