Maximal Comfort, Maximal Style: Shop Parachute Pants and Skirts Edit

This mid-nineties trend is making a comeback.

Parachute Pants: Pants that you fly away in. 

Just kidding. Sadly the fashion industry has not collaborated with Elon Musk yet. Elon, if you’re reading this and have stepped away from Twitter, just think about it. 

In this case, parachute refers to what the mid-Nineties referred to as ‘Nylon Jeans.’ With notable fashion conglomerates like Bottega Veneta and Alexander McQueen spearheading the moment, many have hopped aboard the parachute pants era. Through careful refinement, reinvention, and the imbuement of possibility, parachute pants have become a staple in the closets of Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin, Jennifer Aniston, and many other star-studded celebs. Whether you thrift it or are leaning towards lavish, we are here to help.
