I never thought I would say that I love mom jeans…but I do. Not the kind that give you a FUPA or the acid wash kind, but modern mom jeans…AKA high waisted denim.
Let’s go back to 2001. I was wearing low-waisted EVERYTHING. Not a good look! I took it so far, too. Have you seen the Scary Movie series? I was so inspired by Kathleen Robertson as Theo with her low-waisted jeans and her g-string popping out the top. So I wore this look for awhile – HOW BAD IS THAT?! I don’t think it can get much worse.
My closet is now filled with only mid and hi-rise jeans, and I just started experimenting with the straight hem. LOVE IT. Try a straight hem jean especially if you are curvy and want to balance everything out. I linked my favorite pair below.
I like to style my mom jeans/hi-rise jeans with a blouse tucked in to really accentuate the hourglass look or wear a more cropped top like I am here. The high waist sucks everything in when you have the right pair of jeans. The best part? When you bend over, there are no plumber moments.
A tip when shopping for mom jeans: look for jeans that have back pockets placed higher to make your butt look perkier and aim for a little distressing. A little distressing makes your whole look more effortless.
Do you own a pair of mom jeans? Love them/hate them? Let me know!
