Fast Fashion Mom Jeans

High-waisted jeans. You’ve heard them called “mom jeans,” as well as other not so flattering nicknames, but it appears as if this vintage style may be making a return to modern fashion.  It’s not surprising, really as fashion trends do seems to cycle every 20 years or so. They may be called by a different name, but the style is the same. A good example is the bell bottom jeans from the 1970’s, which returned in the ’90s as boot cut jeans. Mid-century pedal pushers were reincarnated as capris, which remain popular today.

The look of high-waisted jeans can be pulled off it the fit is just right. When the high-waisted pants stop at the belly button, it narrows the appearance of the waistline, creating a better silhouette.  High-waisted jeans are are a hot back to school essential this year – women are going for high waist jeans and crop tops.

Apparently, other trends that they expect to make a comeback this year include flare pants, velvet, kimonos, and faux fur.  For those of us who lived through the high-waisted jeans trend in the ’90s, the return of this style may be a welcome change from the hip-hugging, muffin-top forming jeans that have been popular in the past decade.

If nothing else, high-waisted jeans give us a rear silhouette unlike any other type of jeans. They are more forgiving of fluffier figures, as well, which is always welcome in fashion.  What do you think of the return of high-waisted jeans?  Let us know in the comments below.

Black Crane Pleats Jumper in Sky – $214

Opening up my fashion news this morning, I came across a Refinery29 article that claimed there was a new pair of pants out there.  Refinery called these pants to be the “8th Wonder Of The World.”  Boy oh boy, were they ever right.

These pants are so high-waisted they blur the boundary between bottom and top!  I suppose these technically count as a jumpsuit, sure, but the pleating, that “waistband” and the lack of a cinch really give your brain the ol’ workaround, hmm?
