Well, it’s our final week of the #TMEStyleChallenge over on IG (@themomedit) and we are going out with a bang: MOM JEANS. So many of you had asked us how the heck to style mom jeans that we added on this final bonus week.
After much discussion in the TME office, we turned to our resident Gen Z-er (and Drexel intern), Abby. Abby has been quietly rocking mom jeans — on the daily, with sneakers — for months now. The reason she loves them so much? Well…I’ll leave that to the video (it might surprise you).
Finding the Right Pair of Mom Jeans
We touch on this in the video, but finding the right pair is key. Abby swears by BDG’s High-Rise Slim Straight Jean (size 31 for reference,) and I’ve been loving AGoldE’s Riley jeans (high-rise, straight crop, size 26 for reference). After talking with Abby (see video), I think I need to crop mine even shorter. Here’s a list of our contributor’s fav pair of mom jeans, as well as the size they prefer:
Linzi (size 26): Madewell Perfect Vintage Jean
Scotti (size 28): Abercrombie’s Curve Love High-Rise Mom Jeans
Kat (size 22): Good American Good Curve High Waist Ankle Straight Leg Jeans
Emily (size 24): AGoldE Jamie High Rise Classic Jeans
What Shoes To Wear With Mom Jeans?
Pairing Tops With Mom Jeans
As you might have guessed, showing off the waist is key. But Abby has some seriously good ideas for not only showing off that waist, but keeping everything in proportion But you’ll have to watch the video to see. 🙂
If anyone cares about my t-shirt (and a similar button-down), they’re all linked here.
Good luck, everyone. Can’t WAIT to see what you come up with!! 🙂
