Look, we get it. Mom jeans aren't for everyone. And honestly, that's totally fine.
But even if you're avoiding any mom jean styles, that doesn't mean you can't hop on the high-waisted jean train. Besides, high-rise denim is flattering on all body types and are arguably more chic than an ultra low-rise pair, especially when worn with a tucked-in blouse.
The key to finding a high-waisted jean that doesn't look like mom jeans is to opt for a skinny, almost legging-like fit. And don't forget the details — rips, tears and distressing. If you're feeling extra daring, try a high-rise jean with a lace-up front or a step-hem (one of the hottest denim styles of the moment).
