Finding the Best Mom Jeans – Your Denim Guide

May 5, 2020

Mom jeans have been a trendy denim style for the past few years and spring 2020 will see an even bigger move towards this denim shape. I for one am thrilled about the move away from skinny jeans, which I’ve never found flattering unless they’re being worn to be tucked into boots. Mom jeans, by contrast, have a fit that just skims your body making it hugely flattering on every body type. I’ve rounded up 5 of the most popular mom jeans right now to give you everything you need to know about the fit, quality and price. I’m also sharing a video review of the jeans over on my Instagram (it will be posted under the IGTV video section) so if you want to see more angles and get a better look at any of these pairs be sure to check that out as well. Happy jean hunting!

Also, happy Cinco de Mayo! Alex and I are going to be making watermelon and jalapeno margaritas after work and I am so looking forward to it. It’s a gorgeous sunny day here in Vancouver so I’m thinking we’ll enjoy our margaritas on the patio and try to get some sun. I’ve also got a few photo ideas rolling around my head for some upcoming instagram posts so I might try to get a few photos shot tonight out on the balcony as well. I hope you all have a great Cinco de Mayo and a great rest of your week!

1. Levi’s Wedgie Jean:

4.5 / 5 Stars
These run small, so size up one size from your usual. They are a really stiff, traditional denim. Levi’s nailed the location of the pockets & high rise fit with this jean, both of which are super flattering on!

2. AGOLDE 90’s High Rise Jean:

4.5 / 5 Stars
These fit true to size. They’re a very true ‘mom jean’ fit. The darker denim and baggier through the calves fit are super flattering.

3. American Eagle Mom Jean:

2.5 / 5 stars
$25 (50% off right now)
These fit true to size but they feel more like a skinny jean than a mom jean. They are really comfortable, but don’t have that mom jean look.

4. American Eagle Curvy Mom Jean:

5 / 5 stars
$38 (25% off right now)
These fit true to size and have that vintage ‘mom jean’ color wash. These still have some stretch but they have a looser leg and more of a mom fit. These are really comfortable and super flattering.

5. Tinsel Mom Jean:

3.5 / 5 stars
$25 (50% off right now)
These also fit more like a skinny jean than a true mom jean. The cuffed hem, while great in theory, hits at a weird spot making it to short for a traditional cuff and too long for a capri. They are really comfortable though with a lot of stretch.
