There was a time when mom jeans were considered a fashion abomination. They are unflattering to a woman’s body, and they usually make the buttocks look larger and fatter. The fit is just all over the place. Needless to say, any person under the age of 30 caught wearing mom jeans would be at the receiving end of heartless jokes.

But that changed drastically in the past few years. With the growing interest in vintage fashion and the general love for all things high-waisted, mom jeans have been reinvented and made into something a lot more wearable (not to mention fashionable!). Now, you can wear mom jeans and get away with it!

Let’s pick up some style tips from some bloggers, shall we?

1. Xenia from A Fashion Nation


Xenia has so many awesome ensembles wearing mom jeans that it’s hard to pick just one, but we managed to narrow the choices down to this classic look. We love how she made the jeans look elegant by wearing them with understated pieces like her solid-colored sweater and by accessorizing with equally minimalist pieces (chunky chain necklace, anyone?).

2. Tatiana from Tatiana Salia


 Wear it with a button down top and drape a jacket over your shoulders for some serious street style vibe. Tatiana even went for cherry red shoes for an interesting pop of color.

3. Lauren from A Little Lau


Tap into your inner vintage girl and wear your mom jeans with a floral top. Something fitted just like Lauren’s will balance out the silhouette of your jeans.

4. Uli from Uli Mali


Cropped tops are also the perfect accompaniment to mom jeans. Take a cue from Uli who made her jeans look urban chic with a turtleneck cropped top. Wearing this to school? Go and accessorize with a leather backpack.

5. Beatriz from Miarmarioenruinas


Go wear your jeans with a sleeveless top, and tuck it in your pants. Have a blazer to give your jeans a more formal appeal. That’s what Beatriz did. She capped off the chic look with nude pumps.

6. Emily from The Pink Zombie


It’s really nice to see that these jeans have undergone a couple of makeovers in the past few years. No longer are they just unflattering jeans made from blue or black denim; they have evolved into something that is a tad edgier and more modern. Tess wore a pair in acid-washed denim with ripped details. They worked seamlessly with her ’90s grunge outfit comprising a printed top, a leather jacket, and a pair of creepers.

7. Tess from Tess Lively


Here’s a fool-proof way to wear your mom jeans — pair them with a fitted top! It will balance the silhouette and won’t make you look like you’ve added 10 pounds overnight. Emily did exactly that with this look. She wore her mom jeans with a cute top and had a furry jacket at her disposal. A pair of pumps also made the look classier.

You don’t really have to go for those old styles of mom jeans. There are slim-fit versions that are actually very flattering. Try the following:
