At first I could not believe they were back in…then I embraced them…MOM JEANS! Yes, you read that correctly. Those high-waisted, straight leg jeans from the 90s are back in style. While at first I was against the trend, I tried a pair and now I LOVE them!
Best Mom Jean Brands
However, when I was first looking into the trend, I had a hard time figuring out which brands had the best mom jeans. I asked friends, I asked my followers on Instagram, and I tried on countless pairs. The answer? Zara and Levi’s! I’ve also heard that Madewell has great options, but I did not have the chance to try any from that brand.
Which Ones I Own
Now let’s break this down. I tried on many pairs of high-waisted mom and straight leg jeans from both brands, but found three styles that I really loved. From Zara, I purchased the high-waisted, ankle-crop straight leg jeans. I found these to be a little more stretchy than the mom jeans that Zara sells. The Zara mom jeans are also high-waisted and an ankle-crop, but they had no stretch at all. For sizing, I sized up one size.
As for Levi’s, I found two styles that I love, which are the Wedgie Fit Straight Leg Jeans and the 501 Skinny Jean! While the 501 Skinny is not as wide in the calf area as a traditional mom jean, they are not tight like jeggings either! I’m wearing the black 501 Skinny Jeans in the above image for reference. For sizing, I found both to run TTS.
I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions! Not sure what shoes to wear with your new jeans?! Check out my favorite booties for fall!
