Yep, you heard that right. Skinny jeans are a trend from the past. They’re dead. That means many of you will need to buy some new pants.

In a recent article from GQ titled “R.I.P., Skinny Jeans” the author declared it’s time to replace skinny jeans with fuller leg trousers. (A sentiment many support and many others are rejoicing.) Finally, we don’t have to suck in our guts and squeeze into a fitted pair of jeans. This new trend — fuller pants — is a breath of fresh air and a look we can all appreciate.

Designers from high fashion to mass retailers all have fuller pants in different styles and fabrics. So if you’re looking for new pants to replace your skinny jeans, we’ve gathered some ideas for you.

1. River stretch-denim jeans from Acne Studios

2. Jogger pants from Zara
