How to style mom jeans? I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely loving the re-emergence of ’90s fashion. Maybe it’s because I’ve been watching too many Friends (anyone else obsessed with Rachel’s style?), or perhaps it’s just that I’m a ’90s baby, but I’m not complaining about lip gloss, scrunchies, cute fanny packs, or my favorite 90s trend, mom jeans!
Yup, you read that correctly: straight leg, loose-fitting denim is back in style, and it doesn’t seem to be heading anywhere anytime soon.
No worries if you’re not sure how to wear this fresh twist on a ’90s trend, I have all the inspiration for you today. As soon as you put on mom jeans, you’ll never want to take them off.
Ways on How to Style Mom Jeans
Wear your mom jeans with white sneakers and a basic tee
If you’re looking for a look that’s easy and never fails, a white tee, denim, and sneakers always work (Converse are my fav sneaker for comfort and price).
You will quickly find that this is your new go-to uniform if you add trendy mom jeans to the mix.
Wear mom jeans with booties and a knit sweater
Booties and mom jeans go together like a dream. On top of that, throw on a knit sweater, and you’re good to go.
There are also these ones if you’re looking for a more traditional indigo wash. They’re not on sale right now, but I love how they look with a simple sweater and some booties. Plus, how cute is that raw hem? Love!
Wear distressed mom jeans and a leather jacket
If you like distressed denim, you’ll be glad to hear that it’s making a major comeback this season.
Now you can get the super trendy mom jeans style in distressed denim.
It’s not a bad combination for an edgy and cool look.
Wear mom jeans with a crop top
Personally, I’m all for a good crop top. Even so, wearing a crop top can either be a hit or a miss.
Either it looks cute and casual, or it leaves me tugging at my clothing to hide any unwanted skin.
To avoid this, always make sure your mom’s jeans are ultra high-waisted and are able to sit comfortably on your hips. If your mom’s jeans slide down, you’ll either be tugging on your crop top or pulling up your jeans all the time. Neither is a good option. Both of those things are true of this pair from Reformation.
When choosing your crop top, choose something that sits close to the waistline of your jeans, almost touching it. Once you start moving around, your top will shift and ride up, exposing more skin. If you wear something that’s very cropped, you’ll probably feel uncomfortable.
Having said that, you can also wear this crop top style with your mom’s jeans…
Both crop top styles look great with mom jeans, however.
Rock mom jeans with a cool button-up and loafers
For an ultra-chic look, you have to pick up some loafers and a white button-down. Seriously, this is the ultimate “cool girl” look, and it’s perfect for those days when you want to look trendy and stylish, but you’re also hoping to give off a casual vibe.
Style mom jeans with a chic blazer
Adding a blazer to your mom’s jeans will never fail you. Having a structured blazer on hand will not only add a level of sophistication to your appearance, but it will also make your outfit even more ’90s-inspired.
Wear your mom jeans with a belt
I used to never like wearing belts, but these days I find that throwing on a belt is a super-easy way to give my outfit an extra layer of style. Belts are also great for high-waisted jeans since they enhance the smallest part of your body (your waist).
How to style mom jeans with boots
I love a comfy sneaker with mom jeans for a casual look. For those who want to step up from a basic sneaker, but don’t necessarily need a stiletto, a boot is a great option.
It looks great when you can either see a tiny hint of the ankle or nothing at all when boots are paired with mom jeans. It keeps the outfit looking seamless and stylish.
