Mom jeans, not a term usually associated with a positive image. What comes to mind when I think of mom jeans? A woman in the 80’s with high high waisted light blue jeans that have a huge long zipper. Not exactly an image of beauty. Never did I think I would wear high waisted jeans let alone high waisted mom jeans. You have to remember, low rise jeans were all the rave when I was in high school and college. Oh do I mean low. Think Christina Aguilera and Britany Spears low…You couldn’t get much lower than that without being X rated. Fast forward a few plus years and all I own are high waisted denim. I think I own maybe one pair of mid-rise jeans and that’s the lowest I will go these days. I have mostly high waisted skinny jeans. However, I also have bell bottoms, but that’s a post for a different day 🙂 Can we be honest for a minute? Very few jeans withstand the all day long test. Jeans are second to bras with woman. Come home rip off the bra and then the jeans. Ah sweet comfort.
I was always hesitant to try the mom jean trend that’s been creeping up these past few years. Mainly because I’m on the shorter side (5’3”). I was afraid they would make me look frumpy. I decided to take the plunge when Abercrombie was having one of their amazing denim sales and I’m glad I did! They are officially one of me favorite pairs of jeans. They are high waisted and have a relaxed fit throughout the legs. Which makes them soooo much better to wear throughout the whole day.
These have definitely become a staple in my wardrobe and I can’t wait to style them in all of the seasons. Right now my favorite way to wear them is with a sweater or fitted turtle neck. They would be cute with a cropped sweater as well. So put on your best pair of mom jeans and go on with your bad self!
