Mom Jeans are back

If you’re wearing Mom Jeans for the first time or it’s just your second time around, what you’ll see looking back in the mirror can be a little disheartening.The main reasons being the thick fabric and the bulbous crotch area.If you’re going to try these power pants with Attitude, the above points must be taken into consideration.Here are some tips to get you started on the road to look more like Kendall Jenner and less like a mom from the 80’s.

As easy as 1..2..3

Show off your waist

Keep it 90’s and pair with a crop top, knotted tee or a tucked knit to balance the bulk.

Rock the 90’s vibe with a lace camisole tucked in, or if you dare to bare think Exposed Midriff.

Crop above the Ankle

Unlike our friend the skinny Jean which hugs the figure, this high waisted straight leg style doesn’t give the body any shape the key is a cinched waist and the length of the leg.

Choose either a cut off distressed pair or roll them up to create the illusion of an ankle.

Feeling Blue

Think true blues and worn in distressing.

Wear with heels, trainers or flats for that effortlessly chic look.

Why I ended up saying yes! to “Mom Jeans.”

Since I have a penchant for the sartorial style, I’ll be embracing this high waisted trend.

We’ve been wearing skinnies for the better part of a decade time to go back in time with a modern take and enjoy the comfort of this 90’s trend.
