7 Anti-Skinny-Jeans Outfit Formulas to Try in 2023

I might be a fashion editor but all I want to wear these days is jeans (and joggers, but I'll save that for another story). I have a hunch that I'm not alone in this and that you, too, may be looking for denim outfit ideas to add to your rotation this season and throughout the year.

As one does when they're looking for fresh outfit ideas, I took to Instagram to see how people are styling jeans. Seven easy looks stood out to me, and none of them include skinny jeans. Instead, you'll find outfits featuring wide-leg, straight, cargo, and baggy jeans. If any of those looser denim styles are your go-tos, you've come to the right place.

Keep reading for fresh, easy outfits to build around your loose denim, and shop pieces to make them happen.
