How to Style Mom Jeans

Let’s talk about mom jeans. Mom jeans have made a HUGE comeback to the fashion world in recent years and are here to stay, considering the many different ways that you can style them regardless of the season. Not only are they one of the easiest pieces of clothing to wear, they basically go with everything when styled right. If you’re not a big fan of skinny jeans like me, then you probably own at least one pair of mom jeans. I like to describe this style of jeans as a feminine alternative to the more relaxed boyfriend silhouette. Normally, these jeans have baggier legs and are tighter at your waist, making them flattering on all body types and definitely a piece that should be in any woman’s closet. These 90’s inspired jeans can take you from a casual daytime look to a dressy look depending on how they are styled. 

If you’re wondering what to wear with your mom jeans, here are some ideas to start you off:

Crop tops

Because mom jeans are so loose on the bottom, it’s common to pair them with crop tops. A simple crop top never goes out of style. Since mom jeans are already baggy, you could go for a fitted crop top that shows some skin for a cleaner, more balanced look. With a fitted top, you’ll look more chic depending on the footwear you go for and your accessories. You could wear either heels and throw in a purse for a dressier look, or if you want to embrace the 90s a little more, go for a pair of chunky sneakers! 

White and graphic tees

For an easy look, try pairing mom jeans with a basic white tee. T-shirts are generally comfortable whether you wear them out on a date, lunch with friends, or just off to work. A white tee is a definite must-have and is versatile so you can wear it with anything, especially mom jeans. Graphic tees are another one of my favorites. They’re visually appealing and are a great way to bring out your own personality and taste. Pairing a graphic tee with mom jeans is very trendy right now and is a comfortable way to make an individual statement. You can even throw a turtle neck on under your graphic tee to stand out even more. Tucking your shirt is always a good idea. It’s important to get the proportions right in order to have a flattering overall look.

Sweaters and knits

Depending on the weather, on warmer days you can wear lighter knits with your mom jeans. But on colder days, you can throw on chunkier knits. Cropped knits in my opinion look the best with mom jeans because it cuts you off at the waste and is much more flattering. If you can’t find any cropped sweaters, try to find one that isn’t too long so that you have an easier time tucking it into the waist of your jeans. Knits combined with the baggy fit of mom jeans will have you going about your day feeling stylish in the most effortless way. 

Leather jackets and blazers

Leather jackets have been around for years, which goes to show that they will never go out of style! If you’re all about looking edgy, then you should try pairing your mom jeans with a leather jacket. They are so versatile and obviously come in a bunch of different colors. But black is a must-have! This pairing definitely gives me Gigi Hadid and Kendell Jenner vibes. Not only does pairing a blazer with your mom jeans keep you warm and comfortable, but it adds a dose of sophistication to the entire outfit. A blazer combined with baggy mom jeans is so trendy right now and also gives you that 90s look that never goes out of style. 


This fashion trend has been around for years and it’s one trend that won’t be going away anytime soon. Before this trend became so popular, a lot of people might have had the same thought that I did… the combination of a denim top and bottom is way too much denim and is a big No No. However, my perception changed after seeing how people can get creative and mix and match different tones of denim to create a really fashionable denim-on-denim look.
