Are there any trends out there that you’ve always hated or just thought you could never pull off? Well I’m here to tell you, you are not alone friend. Dad sneakers, for instance, I don’t see myself trying. I don’t think I’m cool enough for that haha. Berets, neon hues, and tiny sunglasses, just to name a few, are still on the nope list for me. But if I’ve learned anything about life (and fashion), it’s never say never.
Enter, mom jeans. I don’t know why, but for the longest I was so against the mom jean, convinced I could never pull those off. Then one day I got a wild hair and decided, meh. Why not. My life was forever changed that day. Okay, that’s a little dramatic, but my denim collection did see a major shift. Now I can’t stop buying all the mom jeans. Heck, I even bought a pair of mom shorts the other day, and it’s February. I don’t even like denim shorts.
I’m particularly in love with American Eagle Mom Jeans. I’ve always shopped at American Eagle and just love the style + quality of their products. Something about their denim is so comfy and flattering. Not to mention it’s WAY affordable. So today I’m going to be sharing two of my recently purchased mom jeans + what I love about them!
Classic Medium Wash Mom Jeans
Fit: I am 5’5 and wearing a size 6 short. High waisted and relaxed through the top of the body. Relaxed through the leg. Hits right above the ankle.
Why I love them: The classic wash makes these perfect for wearing with just about anything + you can wear them year round. They are a great casual option, ideal for pairing with tees and sweaters. I also really like the relaxed fit throughout. It makes them extra comfy and great for all-day wear. One thing that I really love about American Eagle mom jeans in general is that they are all high waisted. I rarely buy jeans that aren’t these days. These are currently on sale for just under $40 and are originally only $50!
Bleached Mom Jean with Knee Rip
Fit: Wearing a size 6 short. Hight waisted and slim through the top of the body. Relaxed at the leg. Hits right above the ankle.
Why I love them: These jeans have quickly become my new favorites. I wear these at least twice a week. The wash is my absolute favorite, perfect for spring and summer. I really like the fit of these too! The waist is a little slimmer and more structured, which makes a tucked in look extra cute. Again, these are perfect for a casual look (a good graphic tee + leather jacket!) but you can also dress these up by adding a heel. I can’t wait to wear these with my strappy black sandals this summer! These are currently on sale for just under $40 and are originally only $50!
