Rewind six months and I would have sworn against the mom jean trend. I get the seventies flare resurfacing and the eighties neon having their time in the limelight, but these? Never. Alright, well apparently not never. But it was really low on my list of ‘would try’ fashion statements. I equated ‘mom jean’ with ‘unflattering from all angles.’ Yet the more it cropped up on my Pinterest feed, the more curious I got about how leggy models and Parisian ladies were strutting this vintage denim. E pulled me into a consignment shop the other day (his favorite) and this pair just begged for an experiment. At $3.99 (really, that’s what they cost), I couldn’t pass up the chance to test it myself. Spoiler alert? I don’t hate it. In fact, they’re really quite comfortable and more shapely than I imagined. So if you’re venturing the way of the mom jean, here are a few shopping tips to keep in mind:
1. Pick a light wash NOT acid wash: a whiter wash is more likely to accent the places you’d rather not.
2. Leave them loose: these aren’t meant to be another pair of skinny jeans, so look for ones with a wider leg that slims toward the waist.
3. Pair with a form-fitting top: some of the street style fashion stars pull off the trend with a billowing white shirt; but for someone who’s new to the trend, I’d contrast a looser leg with a waist-defining top. This will enhance (or create) a great silhouette.
4. Keep them off the ground: if the jeans are bunching on top of your feet/shoes, cuff them or go for a shorter inseam. Bunching gives the appearance of drowning in hip-enhancing denim.
5. Give some height: playing off the previous tip, elevate the mom jean with a simple heel. These slingbacks are the perfect daytime option to modernize the older trend.
