Mom Jeans

Mom jeans are coming back - oh, no!!!  I had heard rumors, but chose to ignore them.  Good grief, it took me more than a decade to get used to low-waisted pants, and I don't want to go back!!! Ackkkkkk! Apparently denim is going through a paradigm shift.  According to Goldman Sachs, high waisted pants are already the norm in Europe, where trends run ahead of the U.S.  The tide is approaching.

Although the look is updated with shirts and shoes, I'm just not sure I can do it.

How long to hang on????


  1. Oh boy. Those are not going to be good looks for me. I don't have the body for fad fashion.

  2. I've not noticed the trend here yet, though I do think the jeans in the top photo look more comfy than the bottom one.

  3. As long as the pleated fronts stay far far away...change can be a good thing. Personally, I think pleated jeans or slacks enhance the 'belly bulge' which is never a good look on anyone!

  4. Well, I guess it's a step in the right direction for me because I can't stand those low rise jeans. However, pleats are certainly not appealing either. Why don't we all get together and design our own?
