20 Style Tips On How To Wear Mom Jeans This Winter

Mom jeans started out as a look that only vintage aficionados and the trendiest of celebrities wore. They initially intimidated a lot of people. If I’m being honest, they intimidated me. They might have had the same slim legs as my favorite pair of skinny jeans, but they had that super-high waist and those shorter legs.

The more I saw them, the more I began to realize that they looked cool in a fun, retro way. It seems that others changed their opinion too because you can now find mom jeans as easily as other popular pant styles. If you’ve recently bought a pair of mom jeans and you’re wondering how to style them, or you’ve had a pair in your closet and are looking for a way to make them feel fresh, get inspired with 20 style tips on how to wear mom jeans.
