Kaia Gerber is too young to have lived through the '90s, but you would never guess it by the way she pulls off its bygone trends. The 17-year-old model attended the Chloé show at Paris Fashion Week on Thurs. in a pair of pants you probably wore many moons ago. Kaia Gerber's wide-leg jeans are the pants you wore in high school made stylish again.

The model must have taken inspiration from her mom and fellow model Cindy Crawford's past outfits with this head-to-toe '90s look. She wore slicked-back hair and a perfectly cropped leather jacket over a plain white t-shirt and gold-chain necklace. Gerber's statement pants are a pair of baggy jeans by Chloé with white contrast stitching along the pockets. The teal jeans have a super-wide leg for a roomy, relaxed fit and the color is spot-on for fall. Gerber's edgy look was topped off by a red lip, a smoky eye, and an old-fashioned pair of Converse Chuck Taylors.

Throwback styles from the '90s and early 2000s have been making a comeback for a while now. Of all the things that have been recently resurrected — hair scrunchies, crop tops, chunky white sneakers, and colorful sunglasses — the wide-leg trouser is one worth supporting. Other celebrities like Gigi and Bella Hadid, Jessica Alba, and Margot Robbie have all hopped on the trend and Meghan Markle has even worked them into her formal attire since marrying into royalty. Gerber's outfit is proof, too, that the old-school voluminous shape works still works for casual denim.

Get The Look

When you introduce wide-leg jeans into your wardrobe this season, try balancing out the shape by tucking a form-fitting turtleneck or slinky blouse into them for starters. If you're feeling a bit more fashion forward, feel free to accentuate the bulky look with matching billowy sleeves on top or pair it with more denim. Gerber wore hers with casual Converse, but your go-to pair of heeled mules will pair perfectly with the baggy silhouette.
