Actually, we believe Hollywood’s style elite—Selena Gomez, Emily Ratajkowski, even Beyoncé—would have a small conniption if this denim trend fell out of favor. Why? Because beyond millennial fascination in old styles, mom jeans are simply just comfortable. They fall right at your waistline, hugging your hips without suffocating any skin—a.k.a. back fat. The waistline seemingly cinches you in at the smallest part of your body, creating more of an hourglass shape. Not to mention, they are oftentimes cropped, elongating your legs. Win-win-win.
Still, not all mom jeans are created equal. Most tend to come with a slouch, like a boyfriend jean, while others are more fitted or distressed. As their celeb fans prove, there are different styles and even more creative ways to sport this type of time-honored denim. Keep scrolling to see how it’s done.
