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.

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.
