How to Wear Mom Jeans

4 September 2015

I recently scored a great pair of Ziggy Mom Jeans when I had a 51% off code for Universal store. Which was amazing by the way. I like to call them mom jeans even though we spell it Mum in Australia, I think the name just works better. 

Mom Jeans are a bit strange to style as they're high waisted, and fitted at the top but baggy near the bottom. Then they're also baggy around the butt so you get the kinda mom booty going on. 

Some of my favourite looks are plain white tees tucked in. A collared tee really dresses up the jeans, especially with a cute necklace. You can't really go wrong with white and denim. It's a key basic and practical uniform for any wardrobe. 

Keep it minimal sister. 

The tight fitting top part of mom jeans give you the perfect chance to show off your midriff by wearing crop tops. I swear the majority of my tops are cropped now. It took me a while to actually wear them and show off skin, as it's easy to feel a bit awkward. I used to just wear really high waisted everything. But I'm loving how crop tops work with mom jeans. 

Wearing a cropped and not fitted top with this style of jeans just doesn't seem to work, I'm not sure what it is, but the top either has to be long enough to be tucked in or short and fitted otherwise it looks kinda off somehow... Feel free to link me to a photo where it does work!

 I'm keen to be proven wrong. 

Do you own any mom jeans? How do you like to style them? I'd love to know! Leave your styling tips in the comments.

  1. This is such a cute look! You pull off the Mom (Mum haha) jeans so well! x

  2. I think it's happened. I'm finally old. I remember when moms used to wear these for real and I just can't do it. I'm sorry. Plus, I have a lot of booty. You work it, girl!!

  3. I've been giving a lot of love to mum jeans recently, and I LOVE the fact that they accentuate the midriff; perhaps the only part of my body that I like, really, haha. High-waisted anything for the win! I agree that the top has to be cropped AND fitted for the look to work, so I tend to go for fitted crops when styling mum jeans, too! I love the look, Tegan!

  7. I loooooove mom jeans, but don't know if I'd be able to rock them? I'd probably team them with a t-shirt or something tucked in, and some boots because I most definitely do not have a figure like you!!
