Mom Jeans Back in Style ??? Oh, Yes!

Mom jeans back in style

Mom jeans back in style… so high-waist pants and tapered legs are welcomed back this winter.

The ’80s-style waistlines might take a little time getting used to… as they are considered to be both unfashionable, and unflattering to the wearer’s figure.

According to wikipedia The style is often accompanied by a blouse or shirt that is tucked into the jeans. This style of jeans was popular with women in the United States until the mid-1990s, when lower rise jeans started to become fashionable. The term gained greater prominence after a 2003 Saturday Night Live skit for a fake brand of jeans called Mom Jeans, which used the tagline “For this Mother’s Day, don’t give Mom that bottle of perfume. Give her something that says, ‘I’m not a woman anymore…I’m a mom!’

Do you agree??

There are some drawbacks in wearing low cut jeans… we all have suffered the consequences…

I didn’t need to buy a new pair because I have kept this Peanuts cartoon embellished pair of high waist jeans for hmmmm must be more than 20 years!!! I got them in New York from a tiny store that did just this type of embroidery on Levi’s jeans.

I rolled them up …. don’t ask me why? I think it was because I wanted the back of my Saint Laurent pumps to show…

I wore a preppy silk shirt tacked in and a jumper like we use to wear it back in the 1980s, over our shoulders…
