Tips on How To Style Mom Jeans

The mom jeans trend is here to stay. Here’s how to style them.

When a new trend comes around we love to turn to other fashionable ladies for styling inspiration. In this case however, we’re  turning to our style-savvy friends to help us style a trend that is experiencing trend reemergence. (re)Enter, mom jeans.

You may have noticed that mom jeans, or the vintage denim trend similar to the jeans your mom perhaps wore in the ’80s or ’90s, have been in demand over the past few years. We have seen many fashion bloggers and celebrities opting for a vintage 90’s look. But the trend has come into its own recently and the general public is sporting this look more often. Even denim brands have created their own take on the mom jeans trend. They are giving us more styles to choose from, and in turn, allows us different ways to style them.

We have done our research and we are ready to convince you that this trend is worth a try.

We have elected five looks that will have you ready to try this trend for yourself. Check it out below!

Are you a boss babe or always working? Pairing your denim with a blouse and chic stilettos can turn even the roomiest of  jeans into gleaming perfection. And if you’re into accessories you can top it off with a black or brown belt to pull the look together and define your body shape.

Have a date night after work? Pair your denim with a silk top and print heels.

Pairing your denim with a satin or velvet shirt will update your mom jeans to a whole new level. “An easy cheat for a fashionable outfit is wearing opposites together – casual, baggy jeans and rich jewel-toned fabrics are one of those perfect formulas, so you can rock your mom jeans in confidence.” – Josie Santi from The Every girl

Want a comfortable, yet chic look?

Pair your mom jeans with a cozy sweater and cute flats or heeled boots. It’s a perfect look if you are on the go, but still want to feel warm and stylish.


Prefer the glam Hollywood look? Pair your favorite body suit with your mom jeans and top it off with heels.

Body suits are meant to be a worry free version of tucking in your shirt, and it un-tucking itself with every move you make. Body suits also help enhance your body shape and pairing them with your favorite mom jeans will have you feeling fabulous. You can pair this look with almost any pair of shoes you have — sneakers, high tops, heels, wedges, sandals, and boots.

Our last look is pairing your favorite crop top with your denim. Add a cool denim or leather jacket and top it off with feminine heels or boots. This casual yet flirty look is great for day or night!
