They’re retro, they’re chic and no, they are not for your Mom.
These 90’s inspired, oft high-waist, trendily ill-fitting, straight leg jeans are back again, hotter than ever.
From numerous pages on Instagram to pictures on Pinterest and different blogs, these jeans have made an applause-worthy comeback.
Gone are the days of twerking and jumping into your jeans! These babies fit everyone: skinny, curvy, petite, plus-sized or broad.
Like all other articles of clothing, the beauty of these retro jeans lies in pairing them suitably.
Check out some style inspo material on how to pair and wear these loose-fitting beauties.
1. A Minimalist Approach to Things
Simple is always classy. Pair your mom jeans with form-fitting turtlenecks or plain white tees for that relaxed, innocently sexy, girl-next-door look.
This ensemble can be worn with sandals, kitten heels or white canvas kicks and is perfect for picnics, a night out with the girls and everything in between.
2. Crop Tops, Please.
Ah yes. The beloved mid-riff baring tops. For the bolder souls, take things up a notch wearing your mom jeans with a crop top. This would help to accentuate your waist, especially when worn with a belt. Roll up the hems of the jeans for added effect.
3. To Rip or Not to Rip.
From modest little slashes to take-it-out-of-park, ends-fraying gashes, rips are a sure way of glamming up your jeans and giving you that fashionably crazy look. Take a walk on the wild side by pairing your ripped mom jeans with heels, crop tops or off-shoulder tops.
You can never go wrong with a blazer. For all you 9 to 5ers, salvation is here. Combining a pair of mom jeans with blazers gives you that relaxed, upscale air. This très chic outfit is perfect for work on Fridays and super relaxed business meetings.

Shoes are a girl’s best friend. From stilettoes, espadrilles, gladiator sandals and heels to boyfriend shoes, canvas kicks and ankle booties, mom jeans boast a versatility that most articles of clothing can’t.
