TikTok has seduced us with viral dance challenges and all the air fryer recipes you need for fall, but it's also the place to find all the Gen Z-approved fashion trends. And if you're anything like us, it's helping you out with the seasonal closet refresh. Right now, the wardrobe staple the app has us considering for an update this fall is jeans. If you're in the market for skinny jeans, TikTok might just convince you to get a pair of baggy jeans instead.  

Now, we'll never truly let go of our beloved skinny jeans. The fitted denim style is so versatile! But if you're looking to try something trendier than the classic style, many TikTok users, including the app's biggest stars like Addison Rae and Charli D'Amelio, are opting for a baggier silhouette from the straight-leg to the wide leg jean that are reminiscent of '90s fashion. And we're not going to argue -- the high waist mom jean style is definitely a more comfortable fit than tight jeans (even with an elastic stretch).

And since TikTok is the source for all things affordable (like the booty-lifting leggings Lizzo loves), you know some of the recommended jeans won't break the bank -- featuring budget-friendly brands like Levi's, Gap, H&M and American Eagle. 

Shop TikTok-approved jeans below.
