Despite Gen Z’ers making the claim that skinny jeans are (somehow) out of style, I still have no desire to 1) dress like a 14-year-old, nor 2) get rid of any pairs of jeans that hug me close. Yet that doesn’t mean every pair of denim I own fits the mold of skinny. In fact, I’ve been on The Mom Jean bandwagon for several years because they only keep getting better with the fit – straight leg to the ankle and still flattering around the curves. On days where I need a bit more fabric to feel comfortable, The Mom Jean is my go-to.
I recently got two new pairs of Mom Jeans from Mott & Bow and they might be my all-time favorites at the moment! Scroll below to see how I styled the two for everyday, with a special guest appearance featuring my 9-week-old fur child who refuses to leave my side these days (which I slightly adore but means she’s in every single picture…)
The Mom “Henry” Jean | Ribbed Sweater | Corduroy Jacket | Sneakers
A slightly-darker wash than I normally gravitate towards, but I’m obsessed with the vintage vibe this pair gives off. I kept the look casual with a simple sweater & low top sneaks, topped with a corduroy jacket (on sale right now) as my outer layer. The fit hits right below my belly-button, so not super high-waisted but definitely not mid-rise neither. Overall just right!
The Mom “John” Jean | Striped Tee | Cardigan Sweater | Loafers
Normally I consider a striped tee (which is on sale btw!) as something worn candidly but with the inclusion of a black cardi & loafers, this dark wash pair of denim adds the perfect touch of dressy casual to the top. This fit is slightly higher than the first pair, but definitely not suffocatingly tight like some high-risers can be – gotta love a Mom Jean for avoiding that! I’m obsessed with the distressed details & uneven hem of the ankle, too.
I couldn’t agree more about the skinny jeans, but I also do love the mom and boyfriend styles too! You look fabulous — also helped by the addition of the cutest little pooch ever lol!! Your photos are beautiful too.
I like the relaxed fit of these jeans!
I love a good pair of jeans. I have gotten in this comfort zone wearing skinny jeans over the years. I need to try wearing more Mom jeans.
I love how comfy mom jeans are! I really like how you styled them and your pup is adorable!
Your fur child is adorable! Love your shoes (especially the leopard skin ones) as well. You’ve styled the jeans beautifully both ways. I prefer straight to the ankle jeans as well – they always feel more flattering. Thank you for sharing and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party Community.Take care and have a great weekend!
I am actually really loving the “mom jean” look. At the beginning of the year, I was totally not for it. I love your leopard shoes too.
I cant get past looking at your darling little pup! Sooo adorable!
Loving the mom jeans on you! both styles look great. I have to try them!
thanks for linking!
These jeans look great on you! I prefer a mid to high rise jean, they’re much more comfortable than low rise. I love those loafers, very elegant. Your puppy is so adorable! Thanks for linking up!
