The first time I ordered a pair of mom jeans was a disappointment. Even though, I tried styling them a variety of ways nothing seemed to work. I just didn’t like the fit so I had to return them. After another unsuccessful attempt to buy mom jeans online I gave up.

Keep in mind that I’ve always worn skinny jeans and I believe a big part of my disappointment was my expectation. I was expecting them to fit me a certain way and I didn’t understand how to wear mom jeans. And all I did was compare the fit to the skinny fit.

Mom jeans are high-waisted and light-washed. They have longer pockets on the back and fit a bit baggy around the zipper and leg area.

While I don’t think mom jeans are hard to style, I do think it takes a little while to get adjusted to the fit, especially if you’ve never worn loose denim.

HOW TO WEAR MOM JEANS:

+ Wear with a crop top.

Since mom jeans are high-waisted they look great with crop tops.

+ Don’t be afraid to wear with heels.

Heels are an easy way to dress up mom jeans. I would opt-in for a plain but slimming heel.

+ Tuck your shirt in.

If you are not wearing a crop top, tuck your shirt in. This will give definition to your waist.

+ Wear with a plain white tee and white sneakers.

This happens to be my favorite combination due to the simplicity of the outfit.

+ Add a belt.

I think a belt is a great accessory when wearing mom jeans. Choose a statement belt but less noticeable, more minimal outfit.

+ The bag.

Choose a small bag to dress up your mom jeans. Choose a bigger bag for a more casual look.
