Out with the old, in with the new. That’s what they say… or do they?

You guys… 90’s denim is having a moment right now.

Who would have thought flare cuts and mom jeans would EVER come back? Looking at my yearbook pictures, seeing my ten-layered tank top and Hollister jeans with Phat Farm tennis shoes, I’d say PROBABLY NEVER.

But as they say, fashion repeats itself and those words are even true to our 90’s denim. The only caveat is that we know how to style them better now than our mom’s did (sorry moms).

I’m all about an epic comeback and I’m all team MOM JEANS. What defines a pair of jeans are mom jeans? High waisted, looser fits, and thick denim. Most mom jeans have a tapered leg, giving you some extra room to breathe or eat a doughnut. The high waist helps accentuate your skinny waist and makes your butt look plump. That’s a win-win in my book.

How to style them: Because denim in general is classic, you can dress these mom jeans up or down. Dress them up with an off the shoulder top, a body suit, and some heels and you’re set for a night out with your girls. Or throw a some layers (I choose a turtleneck and lace cami), tuck in your tops, and rock some Converse or booties for a more grab and go casual look.

The jeans I’m actually wearing are refurbished and vintage. If that grosses you out, here are some other cute alternatives!

Also let’s talk about the photo vibes. It was like 70 degrees on a Sunday in November. Can we agree that Twin Cities were hashtag blessed to have such an amazing fall. Anyways my lovely photographer met me in the streets (lol) of Saint Paul and we just walked through alleys to get these shoots. Being that I’m a Minneapolis native, it was fun to explore another area of town. Although slightly hungover, I’d say the shoot was a success!

That’s enough for today. Go raid your mom’s closet, you’re local Goodwill, Thrift Shop, or Urban Outfitters and let’s bring back the best decade in time {90’s}  – just with a titch more style and class.
