How to Style “Ugly” Mom Jeans – Tips to Make Any Jeans Figure Flattering

I love jeans. Like seriously, I could wear them every single day and never get tired of them. The versatility they offer is just unmatched. From skinny to flare to boyfriend style, there’s a jean for every body. For the longest time I exclusively wore skinny jeans. They hug me in all the right places and are easy to dress up or down with the change of a shoe.
I still love my skinny jeans, but over the last two years, I’ve become a “mom jean” convert. Mom jeans usually have an extremely high waist, tapered leg and as I like to call it, a “long butt.” So why would anyone wear them?!
Well, it’s all in the styling. Below are a few tips on how to try a different cut of jeans.

Thrifty Threads: Cut Off Shorts Meet Vintage Cut off shorts: I typically only wear them to the beach or on vacation but I switched it up a bit this time.

I took my go-to vacay shorts {I thrifted the jeans for $2 and then cut them myself} and paired them with a vintage find for a cool summer vibe.

It’s no secret I’m an all-skinny-jeans-everything type of girl. But every now and then we should step out of our comfort zone and try something new. That’s been happening a lot lately when it comes to denim. Last month it was a pair of bootcut jeans that fit me like a glove and now I’m absolutely obsessed with these high waisted, relaxed jeans I scored from the Salvation Army for $3.

See the full story below and why I almost passed on the jeans!

I’m a skinny jean lover, so I was a bit surprised when bootcut jeans started to trend. But, I’m here for them! They’re actually a nice departure from the skinnies. And last month I found a perfect pair.

Like most women, I kinda hate shopping for jeans. My dilemma is they’re too long and/or I have gaping at the waist. But whether you’re a size 2 or 20, it just seems difficult to find the one.

But these Denizen bootcut jeans from Target fit perfectly. No tailoring needed and less than $30!
