18 Sep The best Mom Jeans available to buy online
So, what are mom jeans, you ask?
“Mom jeans is a slang term for high-waisted women’s jeans that were originally fashionable in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In the late 1990s and 2000s they were mainly worn by middle-aged American women and considered unhip by trendy younger women. Mom jeans are simply a more relaxed version of your modern high-waist jeans. While having more slack by the zipper area and a tighter fit around the booty, this style has been often criticized for being unflattering. Yet, that doesn’t stop stylistas everywhere from wearing them.”
These are the best kind of jeans, and if you follow Helene, The Fashionista Mama on social media, you will see how stylish and fashionable they can be.
Slightly different fit to boyfriend jeans (which are baggy all over) they have a similar relaxed look and provides the same comfort!
