Every teenager goes through this stage where their parents can do nothing right. You tell your dad his jokes are lame while secretly cracking up inside. Your mom can literally make you a batch of the most delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies and you will complain that the chip to cookie ratio is offensive.
But then this magical moment happens when you go to college: your parents go from being the worst to being the best people ever and all those things you used to complain about become your favorite thing in the world. And being away at college makes you miss those jokes and cookies more than ever.
Well luckily we have a fashionable cure to your homesickness. High-waisted baggy jeans, most commonly referred to as “mom jeans,” were once reserved for carpool lanes and soccer games. Not anymore! This denim style is taking over campuses and the ultimate “cool girl” piece.
Perhaps it is the nostalgia factor; maybe it is the confidence of the garment. Regardless, we can’t help love the mom jeans almost as much as love our actual mom.
And we’re not alone! Check out these Style Gurus who are paying tribute to their moms in style!
