What to Wear With Mom Jeans
You jumped for joy when they made a comeback, or perhaps you're experiencing them for the first time. Either way, we're happy to report the '90s and mom jeans movement is still going strong. Their naturally high-waisted yet still roomy silhouette manages to accent—or create the appearance of—curves, while still allowing some breathing room for eating and letting loose. Plus, we're all just starting to shimmy back into jeans after over a year of wearing exclusively sweatpants, so they might as well be a bit looser, right?
However, unlike skinny jeans that are relatively straightforward to style, there's something about a straight leg and loose fit that feels a bit...intimidating, especially if you're on the shorter side. To give you some inspiration, we've put together a range of sleeveless, long-sleeved, and short-sleeved tops that can be mixed and matched with mom jeans, plus some styling tips along the way (and if you're still looking for a good pair, more denim picks here).

For a look that's easy and never fails, a sleeveless top with denim and sneakers is an effortless combination for summer. Layer it with a boyfriend blazer for a minimally elevated pairing.

When it comes to short sleeves with mom jeans, the key is looking for tighter fits (bonus points if it's cropped). If it's not fitted at the bottom, try tucking it into your jeans for a more streamlined look.

The styling concept for long sleeves are pretty similar—blouses are better tucked in, cardigans are better cropped, and bodysuits are a perennial winner. For cropped tops, always make sure your mom jeans are ultra high-waisted and able to sit comfortably on your hips.
