9 Perfect Ways to Wear Your Favourite Mom Jeans

·3-min read

There are a few jeans styles that, no matter what the denim trends are, plenty of people will keep in their wardrobes. Skinny jeans are one style (even if we don't see so many people wearing them right now), and I'd argue that mom jeans are another. The style, which is a throwback '80s style, is high waisted with a looser fit around the thighs and then slightly tapered at the bottom.

Of course, plenty of brands and designers have interpreted this look in their own way, and there are many jeans that are classed as "mom" which are high waisted with slightly straighter legs. But I digress. If you're a fan of this jeans style (and I'd say nearly everyone is these days), then have I got the gallery of outfit inspiration for you below.

From summer-ready looks of jeans and a nice top to continuing a more wintry vibe (because spring is taking its time!), there are nine looks below, which will mean you'll never tire of your mom jeans. Get ready, then, for plenty of outfit ideas that will keep your denim feeling fresh but also make you want to wear your jeans for as long as possible. Keep scrolling for more.
