It’s a go-to for Eva Longoria and Katie Holmes, too.

When Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour finally made it to Los Angeles, I was prepping for a star-studded, metallic-everything show, and it brought just that. Meghan Markle stunned in a sequined midi skirt, the Kardashian crew rolled up in head-to-toe silver looks, and Gabrielle Union wore a bikini top that made it look like she was dripping in diamonds. It ended up being one of summer’s biggest fashion nights. But out of every look there, the one star I’ve found myself totally obsessed with was Viola Davis.

The actress wore a gem-covered bustier crop top, black bomber jacket, and a pair of practical baggy, wide-leg jeans that I can’t stop thinking about. In just one Instagram post, the 58-year-old convinced me that this year’s biggest denim trend is truly ageless. Baggy wide-legs are a personal favorite of mine because they’re not restricting, don’t wedgie  themselves into places where the sun don’t shine, and look chic all the while. And despite the throwback style’s immediate adoption by Gen Z (who made the executive decision skinny jeans are out), it seems like everyone is now all-in on the ultra-flattering style, including Eva Longoria, Katie Holmes, Jennifer Lopez, and, now, Davis.

While Davis’ Good American’s Good ’90s Weightless Jeans are unfortunately (but unsurprisingly) almost entirely sold out, I found nine similar pairs you can grab today, with prices starting at just $39.

Levi’s 100-percent cotton 94 Baggy Wide-Leg Jeans are currently on sale for just $70 at Amazon. The style is available in a classic blue, light wash, and black, and features a mid-rise and loose leg. While some baggier styles can overwhelm the leg, these find a nice middle — they’re roomy without leaving you feeling like you’re drowning in denim. And according to shoppers at Levi’s, they “fit great and are super comfy.” “[I’ve] always been a baggy jeans person [and] these Levi's fit perfectly,” raved one customer. Another person called them “a very welcome blast from the past,” explaining that they’re “comfortable, fashionable, and well-fitting.”

Madewell’s Baggy Wide-Leg Jeans, made in collaboration with celebrity stylist Molly Dickson, have been added to nearly 1,000 carts just this week alone. Plus, they’ve been worn by Sydney Sweeney, too. This is another pair of 100-percent cotton jeans, meaning they’ll last you but won’t have any initial stretch. (Dickson previously told InStyle to go “one size up” to achieve that comfy baginess.) And according to a customer who had been searching “for a pair of baggy jeans to dress up or wear casually,” these are it. “These jeans are the [right] pair for my body type,” the self-described “curvy” shopper wrote, who noted they’re a size 10. They explained that they “love the way these jeans sit on [their] hips… fitting at the hips and waist” while maintaining a baggy leg.

Personally, I’m eyeing this pair from Citizens of Humanity for my next splurge, which brings something new to the trending style. The ultra-roomy jeans feature a vintage-esque light wash and a stylish rolled hem we’ve seen rocked by Sofía Vergara and Sarah Jessica Parker. According to shoppers these run a little large (so consider sizing down) but are “so cute.”
