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.
1. Mom Jeans With Black Turtleneck And Blazer
How chic is this? Style cropped mom jeans with a turtleneck and an oversized blazer. I highly encourage you to add in the baker boy cap.
2. Neutral Coat, Black Sweater, And Mom Jeans
My sister in the background- "don't smile"; "your label's sticking out"; "it looks more natural with your feet pointing that way" =the reality of trying to take an outfit photo (this coat is my favourite though 🤤) . . . #allshots #aesthetic #architecture #britishstyle #blogger #brunette #check #citysnap #coat #denim #discover #embracingtheseasons #exploretocreate #fashion #folkauthentic #fashionblogger #instagood #instadaily #justgoshoot #lifeandthyme #londonenthusiast #moments #mytinyatlas #momentsofmine #momjeans #mypersonalstyle #myeverydaymagic #newlook #nestandflourish
