by Ashley Smith-Neily 04 Dec 2022 0 Comments

While some fashion trends come and go, mom jeans are here to stay. Mom jeans are a high-waistedslightly relaxed-fit denim style. They usually have a straight leg or slightly tapered silhouette and can be worn cuffed or un-cuffed. Like almost all fashion trends, mom jeans have made a strong comeback in the last decade, and are one of the most popular styles of denim for women today. 

The top two reasons mom jeans are a closet essential are:   

  1. They’re flattering and lengthen the look of your legs. The high-waisted style and slightly tapered leg looks great on most body types and can accentuate the waistline and make the legs appear longer and more slender.  
  2. They’re easy to style. Mom jeans are super versatile and can easily be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.

Mom jeans have been having a moment lately, and it’s easy to see why. They’re comfortable, versatile, and they make a stylish statement. Here are 12 ways to style mom jeans and make them look chic this fall and winter.  

Mom Jeans + Trench Coat

Want to spice up your go-to trench? Pair it with high waist mom jeans, a cropped sweater, and matching booties. The mix of classic and trendy pieces gives an effortless result worthy of becoming your go-to outfit.  

Style Tip: As it gets colder one of the best ways to make a trench coat (or any of your layering pieces) look cooler is to layer a hoodie underneath, rather than a tee or sweater. The hood coming out of the top serves as a little something extra to draw the eye, and it’s perfect for transitional weather of any season. 

Mom Jeans + Bodysuit
