If you haven’t heard, “mom jeans” are back — and they’re a trendy denim style to wear now. So what are mom jeans, and how did this denim style for women go from being the butt of jokes, to being one of today’s must-have denim styles for trendy young (and young-at-heart) women?

Topshop was the first fashion retailer to re-introduce the mom jean as a trendy style for young consumers. Other covetable, youth-focused global brands (including ASOS and H&M) soon followed — as did their advertising campaigns — and today, mom jeans are a hot fashion item that even luxury designer brands are including in their denim collections. What does a pair of mom jeans look like? Each pair is slightly different – some are more distressed, while others are stone washed or pleats. What they all have in common is they are high waisted with a low crotch and the back pockets have the effect of flattening the owners butt. Mom jeans are not only for “moms”, they are actually a style more loved by the younger girls. If you are a mom with a bit of a tummy, the mom jeans will camouflage that area. Awesome, right?!

If you do decide to wear the new mom jeans, you can style them the same way you would the boyfriend jeans in your wardrobe. Their high waist demands a tucked in top, and they can be worn with sneakers or high heels alike. Layer a blazer over top to dress up these jeans, and add some shape to your outfits.
