It’s official – the mom jeans movement is back and better than ever. The loose, high-waisted style have a reputation for not being the most universally flattering of jean styles, knowing how to properly rock this denim style is key. And whether you’re styling your mom jeans in a relaxed, casual way or sprucing them up for a night on town, the versatility that comes with this throwback trend makes mom jeans an essential addition to any closet. Here, we break down five stylish ways to rock your mom jeans that will take your style to the next level.
When it comes to styling any outfit for fall, the first go-to ensemble is bound to have a sweater in the mix. Pair your mom jeans with a bright knit – we’re all about going with fall colors like this bright red pick – and keep the look sleek but casual by adding a pair of plain whit sneakers and a leather crossbody bag.
While mom jeans are best known for their baggy, relaxed fit, you can easily create a look that feels clean-cut and pulled together by pairing your slouchy denim with more preppy accompaniments. Try tucking in a simple black blouse and sporting a pair of chic slide-on loafers. Grab a simple cardigan to help with the nippy fall temperatures and a structured, neutral-colored bag to top off the look.
While a lot of outfits you can put together with mom jeans are meant to balance out the slouchy fit of the denim with pieces that pull in different influences, you can also go the route of just totally embracing the casual, slightly grungy feel of the denim. Pair the jeans with a loose-fitting graphic t-shirt and pair of military-style boots. Top it off with a khaki jacket and a casual backpack.
Oversized plaid blazers are having a major fashion moment this fall, so it would only make sense that you should look for ways to pair your staple mom jeans with the seasonal trend. Just grab a simple white t-shirt and tuck the top into your high-rise denim. Then throw a blazer on top, slip-on a pair of sleek black boots, grab a minimal but structured purse, and you’re good to go.
Get your mom jeans ready for a night out by pairing the denim with a fancier top – we’re all about this textured, bell sleeve blouse – and some shimmery accessories that top off the look.
