The Modern Mom Jean

Is the skinny jean finally going out of style? It's something we've been hearing for years now, and yet they still remain the predominant silhouette on the jean scene. Personally, I think that skinny jeans are super flattering and will continue to be a favorite. However, I'm definitely appreciating the rise in popularity of other denim shapes that we are currently seeing, as I'm always in favor of a bit variety to keep things fresh. We have the resurgence of the flare, as well as the new culotte jean, the cropped flare, and my new favorite silhouette, the vintage-cut "mom jean." It's a little bit like the boyfriend jean that we've been well-acquainted with these past few years, but with a high-waist and a more tapered leg.

I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair for a while now; some of them can be on the baggyish side so I was afraid they wouldn't flatter. I really liked the look of Levi's Wedgie Icon, but for my first pair I decided to go with a more slim-cut pair as a transition between the skinny jean and a truer mom jean. I've seen a lot of style bloggers killing it in the Asos Farleigh slim mom jeans, and since Asos has such an easy return policy, I ordered two pairs. I'm happy to report, they were a winner! I took my normal size and consider my first experiment with mom jeans a success. Definitely looking forward to wearing more of this denim silhouette in the future. Have you tried wearing mom jeans yet? How do you feel about the trend?

Farleigh slim mom jean, ASOS. Tasseled blouse, H&M (also available in black). Silver pointy flats, Forever 21 (old, similar here). Mini bucket bag, Mansur Gavriel.

  11. I love how simple but chic your outfit is! I do have a legit mom-jean because they were given to me by my mom. It was from the 90's and it fits me well. I really love it because it is high-waisted but Philippines weather is just too darn hot and humid to wear jeans!

  13. Hmmm. I definitely like high waists but I don't think I could pull off the mom jeans with my badonkadonk. You look amazing, and love the top so cute <3

  15. You pull off mom jeans so well! I wish I could, but I think skinnies are better suited for my legs/body. Love your style! xoxo, sharon | www.stylelullaby.com
