Skinny jeans, straight leg jeans, boot cut jean, boyfriend jeans and now Mom jeans? First off what are Mom jeans? Mom jeans is a slang term for high-waisted women’s jeans that were originally fashionable in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They were also not considered cool in the slightest sense…at least not by trendy younger women. Looks like we are eating our words ladies and gents.
Without writing an entire book, I took my talents to Target and saw this pair of super cute distressed jeans. Grabbed them in a size 0 and 2 and tried them on. Anything high waisted is perfect in my book. The 2s were super big, so I tried on the 0. I still had some room but then thought if the fit had something to do with it…Mom jeans.
So much better than a boyfriend jean could ever fit. Boyfriend jeans tend to be lower rise (hate it) and pretty straight down the leg. Mom jeans however are nice and high waisted, perfect for shorties, and taper at the leg a bit. Needless to say I’m a fan! I grabbed these from Target for $22. They are super soft, so comfortable and look very flattering. If you’ve seen or have a pair of mom jeans, what are your thoughts?
Thanks for reading!
