They’re called Mom jeans, but they are not just for moms!
The latest jean design that’s taking the fashion world by storm is the loose-fitting, high waisted, 90’s inspired denims, simply called Mom jeans. Yes, it’s a pair of jeans that are actually super comfortable and are not skin-tight, but this has stumped many women on how to style them.
Mom jeans can be tricky to style, but once you’ve followed a few simple tips they will become your wardrobe staple and you will love everything about them. Brands like Topshop and Urban Outfitters are making them easier to style, too, because they are giving us a wide range of different washes and styles (ripped, vintage) to choose from.
Crop tops are not for all of us, but they do look good when paired with a pair of Mom jeans. So do bustiers…These will accentuate your waist and flatter your curves in all the right places, as well as adding a touch of sexiness to your look. But if sexy chic is not what you’re after you take some cues from menswear: we’re loving how Ami’s Spring ’15 menswear runway paired Mom’s jeans with an oversized coat.
Another great thing about Mom Jeans is that there is no need to over-style your look. Sometimes simplicity is best. Throw on a simple, neutral silk blouse and Voilà! Or you can always wear a kimono over your blouse for a boho-chic inspired look.
We’re loving the turtlenecks and cashmere sweaters this season and they look great when paired with Mom jeans. Tuck the fitted sweater into your jeans, for an elegant, sophisticated look. They also look great with a simple loose-fitting tee paired with a structured blazer or a leather jacket for a more edgy look.
Shoes are key: dress your Mom jeans up or down with a great pair of shoes. If you are wanting a more glamorous look then pair your Mom jeans with a great pair of wedges of stilettos (nude ones with a cuffed leg look amazing) but for an everyday look brogues, boots and slipper shoes are the perfect combo.
