Mom Jeans are perhaps the most classic denim style out there. Over the past few years, they’ve come in and out of style, and yet they continue to be a favorite in the denim industry. Not only are they perfect for school and for work, but they go with just about everything, and look good on everyone. You can easily keep mom jean outfits casual with sneakers or dress up your look with boots. By wearing mom jeans with a crop top, they can take you from day to night easily.
They’re also such a staple item that you might just become obsessed and end up buying one too many pairs.

It’s so simple to pair this denim style with other items for various occasions and cute looks. Continue reading for some ideas on how to style mom jeans in a variety of ways that you might not have thought of yet!
01. Keep it Neutral
By sticking to neutral hues, you create a timeless outfit that can easily go from casual to glam with minor changes. Pairing a classic pair of blue mom jeans with a cozy neutral sweater and some loafers creates a ‘90s-inspired look perfect for getting coffee on Saturday morning.
02. Parisian Chic
Feel like channeling some Emily in Paris vibes on a more casual level? Pair some medium-wash mom jeans with a colorful cardigan — or a black one for Camille vibes. Then, add loafers or heeled booties to complete the look.

04. Comfy and Casual
When in doubt, pair your mom jeans with a sweatshirt, sneakers, and a baseball cap for a comfortable outfit that’s cute but requires little effort. This little formula has endless combinations, so it’s perfect to turn to on days when you want to get ready quickly and be comfy.

05. Bold and Different
If you feel like spicing things up from your usual mom jeans, go for a printed pair of mom jeans. There are tons of styles and colors to choose, from blue denim with swirls to colorful, floral mom jeans. With a printed pair of mom jeans, you can make that your key piece keeping the rest of the outfit simple, or you can bring more color to your outfit with a colorful top that goes well with the jeans’ tones.
06. The Black Bodysuit
Nothing is more classic than pairing mom jeans with a black bodysuit. It’s the simplest combination, yet somehow makes you look put together and chic — kind of like the trusty LBD. To elevate this simple look, go for a slicked back ponytail or bun and some gold jewelry.

09. The Leather Shacket
To style your ripped mom jeans, add a classic top and layer a shacket over it. Shackets elevate your casual outfits so easily, while still being super comfy. Finish off the look by styling your hair with a claw clip for a model-off-duty vibe.
