They’re back…. mom jeans. These ain’t your mama’s smart high-waisted Lee’s from the 90, these are chic and so on trend. Now when most of us hear mom jeans, we think of some Kardashian or Jenner rocking high waisted baggy jeans with teeny-tiny tee’s and not a bra in sight. Not the most wearable option for real moms with real bodies. The key with these jeans is to be sure to highlight your waist. You can go with the “accidental tuck” (you know when you just so happen to tuck in the perfect amount of just the front of your shirt), or even a cropped cut shirt. No, not a crop top, but a shirt with a shorter cut to offset the high waist of the jeans. Rest assured, whatever your body type, there is an appropriate denim look awaiting you…
While a kick flare looks great on all body types, they are particularly flattering on curves, and lord knows us mamas have earned them! Be sure the flare starts just above the knee to balance out larger hips and bottoms. These Madewell jeans have a slim fit through the hips and thigh to really accentuate the flare, creating a long and lean line.
Hourglass shapes should draw the eye to the smallest part of their bodies, their waist, with a high-rise jean with minimal stretch. Try these J Brand Natasha Sky High skinny jeans with a high rise and smooth, skinny fit for a super flattering and leg-lengthening silhouette.
Pear shapes can balance put their proportions with a flared leg to offset curvy hips. These Good American Good Curve high waist ankle straight leg jeans have the perfect amount of flare and stretch to make these your go-to jeans for every day.
Boyish figures, look to create a more curvy shape with a high rise and tapered leg in non-stretch denim. Topshop denim is my current obsession and the wash and cut on these Autumn High Rise Mom Jeans are divine.
For petite shapes, try cropped, straight-fit jeans. The shorter length will help create a longer silhouette, lengthening out proportions. These Current/Elliot Cropped Straight Jeans in Loved are the perfect cool jeans for summer fun.
