3 Ways to Wear Mom Jeans

Let me just start by saying that you don’t have to be a mum to wear mom jeans. OK.

There are three reasons I’ve fallen in love with them. One, they’re actually high-waisted on me which due to my long torso, never happens. Two, they’ve got that whole beaten-up, slouchy vibe going on. Three, They can be worn with anything.

I’ve styled them three different ways so you can see just how versatile they are.

With a Classic Breton

 

I’m not going to lie, this has become my fail-safe weekend outfit. Firstly, you can’t ever go wrong with a striped top. Secondly, it looks even better when tucked into these high-waisted babies. It’s a casual, run-to-the-shops-then-straight-to-lunch outfit. It’s reliable, fail safe and bloody easy. That’s all you want at the weekend.

Obviously I had to add a pair of leopard-print sequin trainers into the mix.

With a White Shirt

I have an obsession with borrowing Al’s clothes, in particular his shirts. I reached for his classic white one this time, rolled the sleeves, popped the collar and roughly tucked it in. Sorted.I also pulled out this sleeveless jacket which I got a little while back. It pulls this whole look together and gives a hint of sophistication. Add to that mix my shiny new white heels and we’re laughing. Perfect for a day in the office.

With a Crop Top





 

Crop tops scare the actual crap out of me. I figured since I wore them the first time round (when I was in my early teens) that I shouldn’t wear them again. And then I just so happened to feel brave – or stupid – enough to order one before Christmas to pair with my shimmering turquoise mermaid skirt.

And I wore it. Actually put it on and left the house. Well OK, I put it on at work and wore it to a Christmas party where I knew the lights would be dimmed. But I still wore it. Technically you could see about half an inch of stomach which I could cope with. This time though I’ve gone all out. I’m aware that while this might be out of my comfort zone and not the most flattering on me, I wanted to show that you can pair these two together. If I can, you definitely can.

Crop top, ASOS. Mom jeans, Topshop. Lace socks, Accessorize. Brogues, Clarks.There you have it. How do you style yours?
