If you though that your mom’s jeans were cool only back in the 80’s, we are here to tell you that you are totally wrong. Mom jeans are making a spectacular comeback and you should keep a close eye to fashion trends, since it is likely that they will remain a familiar presence for quite a long time.
When we think of mom jeans, we think about unflattering high waist, solid blue jeans. If you watched shows like “Friends” or “Beverly Hills” you surely haven’t missed them. Pleats, tapered legs, and elastic waistbands were common features for mom jeans. As the time passed, the style vanished, being replaced by skinny jeans, promoted by more and more famous pop stars.
After more of decade of extinction, the style has been slowly but steady, being revitalized. For midlife women, the style is empowering. Super comfortable, they practically say midlife women that they should not try to squeeze into something they do not fit. And now, more stylish options, like cropped jeans, are available, making it an option not only for mom, but also for the trendy youth.
New models of mom jeans can be quite fashion-forward, unexpected and just what you need to turn an outfit from boring to something really spectacular and appealing. A relaxed T-shirt or even off-the-shoulder, midriff-baring top are a good pairing. However, you should avoid pleats at all costs and pay special attention on how they fit on your butt. Mom jeans are very edgy, especially if you’re willing to combine them with something else that flatters your figure. You can consider them skinny jeans’ cooler, older sister. Since they are not quite as popular as skinny jeans, this means you’ll stand out from the crowd. Plus, they are a hell of a lot more comfortable. It is a certain gain.
Unlike skinny jeans, mom jeans do not need flat belly and tiny, high butt. Plus, a wider leg will make it more comfortable than skinny jeans. And there are many ways to compensate or to make a spectacular appearance. If you are slim, you can easily get a perfect hourglass shape by tucking a blouse into the high-waist jean. For a more though, bad-ass look, you can always pair the jeans with a cropped moto jacket and some high heels. And you can always opt for some black denim mother jeans. Who said that “mothers” cannot look bad-ass?
