Given how wildly popular they were a few years ago, if I had to guess, I’d say that you probably still have a few pairs of mom jeans in your closet. In case you need a reminder, mom jeans are high-waisted, straight-leg jeans that are wide in the hip area and usually a bit cropped. Think Levi’s Wedgie Jeans, one of the mom-jean styles that have stood the test of time.
So why bring mom jeans up now when we honestly kind of forgot about them? Simply put, Emily Ratajkowski. She was out walking in Manhattan earlier this week in an outfit that made mom jeans look very cool once again. She paired them with a knit crop top and suede coat and accessorized with a simple leather belt, gold hoops, and affordable Vans sneakers with white crew socks. Scroll to see the look for yourself, and shop mom jeans that are also still cool in 2022.
