Wide Denim Coding Tips and Featured Models


Wide Denim Coding Tips and Featured Models

With the revival of 90’s fashion and the Y2K fashion trend, the hip-hop and skater styles of the 90’s have attracted attention, and wide denim (baggy jeans) are rapidly gaining popularity these days. In this issue, we focus on ” wide denim ” and introduce styling points, men’s coordination from overseas as a reference, and recommended items from popular brands!

Wide denim makes a difference with a loose silhouette with movement

Wide denim is also perfect for balancing out oversized tops, chunky-soled sneakers, and Timberland yellow boots, which are getting a lot of attention for their collaboration with Louis Vuitton. Many of the leading high brands in the mode, such as Balenciaga, Gucci, and Maison Margiela, are launching this style.

To achieve a current wide denim look, we recommend choosing a full-length or floor-length type. Full-length wide denim is the basic silhouette of the trend-leading high-end brands such as Balenciaga and Maison Margiela, which have loose silhouettes with tamaris at the hems. If the length is too long, it is best to cut the hem to just barely long enough that it does not touch the floor (i.e., does not drag).

Dressing Point 1Pairing wide denim with thick-soled sneakers accelerates the current look and street style

Wide denim and thick-soled sneakers have been attracting attention as an it item for both men and women. Pairing these two items together emphasizes the loose and street style, and gives your styling a more modern look. Of course, thick-soled sneakers are also perfect for cushioning full-length wide denim and balancing the silhouette of the lower half of the body.

Wearing Point 2Combine wide denim with a short length jacket to emphasize the silhouette of the bottoms with movement

To emphasize the silhouette of the bottoms with movement while balancing the wide denim, the tops you should choose In particular, the most current full-length wide denim will give you a leg-lengthening effect, and it is also convenient to wear it on the waist to emphasize a loose fit, or combine it with a longer inner layer to emphasize layering. Furthermore, as shown in the image picked up here, a short length jacket that goes well with wide denim is the best solution for tucking in an inner layer to make the waist area look slimmer.

Dressing Style Point 3If you want to stand out from the crowd, go for white! Get both a clean look and a bold look with this coordinate.

The standard colors for wide denim are indigo blue and black including gray, but white is a strong choice if you want to get both a clean look and a bold look. The fact that it is an expansive color tends to make people avoid it, but the clean impression that is hard to get with other standard colors is the exclusive domain of white wide denim, making it a great way to differentiate yourself from the rest.
