Last year saw the death of the skinny jean, and the rise of the much comfier boyfriend jean. But towards the end of 2015, a new denim style started to rise, or rather, return: the high-waisted "mom" jean.
Yes, those jeans that your mom used to wear when bringing you to soccer practice are back, with street style stars and It girls like Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Alexa Chung all donning the style. But unlike your mother's pair, these ones are actually quite flattering and highlight your best assets, if you know what we mean.
The great thing about the modern mom jean is that it comes in all types of washes and styles — from classic blue to distressed black and everything in between — leaving you with plenty of options for finding your perfect pair.
The key to rocking the mom jean (without looking like an old-school soccer mom), is to pair it with the right separates — think a bomber jacket and sneakers or a trench coat and heels combo. For that extra touch of "cool", cuff your jeans to show off your ankles.
