In a work-from-home, comfort-driven world, skinny jeans are losing their spot on the denim pedestal—and fast. Loose fit baggy jeans across all genders provide a touch of grunge to our loungewear-esque wardrobes. Here are the brands doing them more sustainably.
The new monarch in denim
Skinny jeans held the top spot for denim lovers the world over for almost two decades, but their reign may be coming to an end. In an era of comfort with more people working from home than ever before, loose fit baggy jeans are stepping into the limelight. We love them for their gender neutral, streetwise look and feel, and they’re exploding across fashion collections this year.
We previously checked in on the brands making more ethical and sustainable wide leg pants, but this time we’re going to laser focus on the dreamy denim that can take you from bed to the boardroom with its universal appeal.
P.S. Keep wearing skinny jeans if you want to—we won’t judge. After all, the most sustainable option is using what you already have. But if you’re in need of new, take a look at the responsible brands below doing better by people, the planet, and animals in their supply chains.
