Mom Jeans 2018
The mom jeans made their comeback when the 90s fashion popped back to the fashion scene! They are recognized by the high waist and the loose, yet structured style. They’re not baggy as in the boyfriend jeans but semi-baggy if that makes sense? Anyways the jeans were for long quite disliked as they’re arguably not that flattering. But we don’t care about that so much, do we? Some of the designers that worked the mom jeans includes; Marissa Webb, Topshop and Emilia Wickstead
How To Style Them
So I’ve already mentioned that the mom jeans might not be that flattering, not really adding curves but drowning them somewhere between the high waist and the width of the legs! I think there are a few ways you can balance the jeans , by enhancing the silhouette but also add some height to balance the heavy look of the clothing piece. There are different ways to create a silhouette 1) tuck in your top, partly in the front or fully around 2) go for a crop top and thereby create some contrasts 3) mark your waist with a belt, I’d do this if you have a longer cardigan that needs some structure. To balance the heavy feeling of the jeans you can either go for heels or skincolored shoes. This will make you appear taller and help you pull off the look easier.
Another thing to think about is to balance the feeling of the jeans. A terribly diffuse thing to say, fully aware of that, but it’s about making the style of the jeans suit your personal style. That is, if you enjoy a more preppy style, it’s a good idea to pair the look with elements that are typical of your style and what you like. For instance, the preppy style is highly associated with structured pieces and of finer materials. A silky blouse is a nice contrast with the heavy denim. If you need to make the outfit look more formal, adding a blazer is in your advantage.
Lastly, the light washed denim color is one that goes with all the colors. That means that you’re safe to play safe but also that you’re safe to reach for the bolder shades. Red is still a color to count on, ultra violet is the shade of the year and other statement shades as the neons or the fall colors will work well!
Here’s a few fashionable looks that I think a great examples of how to style the mom jeans 2018. From how to go for the structured look with a blazer to adding some color. Note how in the first look the balance of the elements is genius. Love the way the texture of the sweater contrasts the one of the denim. Truly folks, it is simple as THAT!!
