Three Reasons Why Mom Jeans Rule + How To Style Them

Everyone's heard about the mom-jean-comeback right? I have to admit, I was skeptical at first. How could a pair of frumpy jeans be making such a grand "comeback"? So I decided to test them out for myself. I snagged the pair that I'm wearing today from a thrift shop (but linking a similar pair here) not knowing if I'd ever really wear them, considering the not-so-flattering loose fit. But after my first time out with them, it fell madly in love! And I soon came to realize the three main reasons why mom jeans rule..

1. Room for the food-baby.

Mom jeans by nature are loose fitting, which most importantly means that there is room to eat as much as your heart desires! I wore these bad boys to a potluck dinner the other day and it was magical. I was able to grow an impressive food-baby without any room restrictions!

2. No jean-dance required. 

Every girl who's ever owned a pair of skin-tight jeans knows first hand how difficult it is to get in and out of them. Once you get both legs in, you're left having to do a butt-wiggling dance to shimmy the rest of the way into them. Mom jeans on the other hand? Super easy to get in and out of!

3. Trendy with the right apparel.

Since mom jeans on their own are a little frumpy looking, it's important for the rest of the outfit to be "on." Which means.. the top has to be trendy, the shoes need to make a statement, and the accessories have to be cute. So I decided to pair my mom jeans with this stylish Vertical Striped Drop Shoulder Tie Detail Blouse, from Shein, my comfortable Jean Mules, from K.Dan Flat Shoes, and a pair of oval sunglasses that I got for $10 on Amazon! When styled all together, the result is a comfortable yet fashionable ensemble!

In conclusion, I am now an avid mom-jean-wearer and I hope that my strange ramblings of food-babies and jean-dances will inspire you to give them a try too!
