It’s time to relax!
Fashion designers, bloggers, street style stars, and editors are constantly looking for fresh new ways to wear denim, and while skinny jeans have been our sartorial BFF for years now (there’s nothing easier than throwing on a pair with a slouchy sweater and a cute pair of shoes), the freshest way to rock denim this season is in the form of relaxed, slouchy jeans.

For Summer ‘17, and even moving into Fall/Winter 2017, multiple designers favored looser, more relaxed-fitting jeans. Christian Dior gave us major seaside vibes in crisp, white denim that was perfectly slouchy, yet tailored, and Off-White served up tomboy chic boyfriend denim. Celebrities, too, have favored slouchier denim styles this season. Models like Gigi Hadid and Alessandra Ambrosio have been photographed wearing the trend, and even though fringe dresses and cutoffs are a staple at music festivals, actress Yara Shahidi, fashion expert Louise Roe, and beauty guru Hannah Bronfman rocked jeans in slouchy silhouettes.

Want to try the trend? Go ahead and pack up your skinnies for now—you may not be needing them for awhile. Instead look for more relaxed denim in different washes, distressed, cuffed, cropped, and even embellished like the ones we saw at Dolce & Gabbana. Wear a pair of relaxed jeans with an oxford shirt (another of the season’s hottest trends) and accessorize with girly details like statement earrings, a colorful neckerchief, or ballet flats. Or rock one of our favorite looks—denim on denim— by tucking a denim shirt into a slouchy pair of jeans.
