Contrary to popular belief, you neither have to be a mom, nor belong to The Breakfast Club to rock mom jeans; in fact, mom jeans have made such a major comeback in the last few years that they are now quite coveted, by women and men of all ages.
Originally termed “mom jeans” due to the belief that they did not flatter the female form (because apparently, moms are unattractive- which is complete bogus to us) the prominence of the denim classic today is a reassuring sign of the times: in this day and age, we are gradually learning to accept and empower one another in all aspects of life—including style, among many things. So, mom jeans are great not only because they are cute and comfortable, but also because they are empowering for everyone, everywhere.
And, while there’s surely an infinite amount of ways you can wear this comfy denim classic, we at Yougoz have provided you with 5 different styles that will hopefully fuel your inspo.
1. Crops and kicks
The high waistline on these jeans makes it almost impossible to not throw on a cropped top—and there’s no reason not to! Any cropped top paired with your go-to comfy kicks will make for the perfect casual cute ‘fit.
2. Classy Chic-y
Although you might have a hard time getting away with denim in the office, there’s no doubt that today, mom jeans can be classy (and chic-y), when need be. Don’t be afraid to experiment! People will praise your creative, and stylish genius.
3. Sweater weather
Too cold out for your crop? Denim jeans are practically synonymous with versatility—and there’s no change in the game when it comes to mom jeans. Pair yours with a cozy turtleneck or overcoat to show off your inner functional and fashionable queen (or king).
4. Night out
In an era where it’s acceptable to wear sweats to the club (thank the Kardashians), there are no limits when it comes to incorporating your mom jeans into your flirty Friday night ‘fit. Throwing on some pumps will add just the right amount of edge and flavor to your already eye-catching number.
5. DIY Daisy Dukes
In light of being experimental, another way to get creative with your denim is by transforming them into a pair of Daisy Dukes/denim shorts: simply cut across each leg (according to the desired length), run them through the wash a couple times to smooth out the rough edges, and you’re ready rock to your new Dukes.
