Brave Enough to Rock This Trend This Season?

They’ve been the subject of sartorial ridicule for seasons now, and we’re not going to lie – we can see why. Mom jeans are hardly the most flattering styles of bottom, but they surely are among the most statement-making. These crazy pairs of denim have gone from our mother’s closet to our hearts, captivating us with their adorable ugliness. Tar Mar, fashion risk-taker as she is, shows us how to rock mom jeans like the best of ‘em in the video above. Check it out and then tell us, do you have what it takes?

So, how can you spruce up a pair of not-so-hot mom jeans? Oh, let us count the ways. First of all, you’re going to need a sassy top to offset the lack of sassiness in your jeans, so stick with crop tops and camisoles to make your statement. For a luxe night-out-on-the-town look, opt for a black silk camisole and distressed mom jeans, then top things off with a pair of patent leather pointy pumps and a killer bold lip. Other accessories like a classic quilted bag, a thick gold chain necklace or a fabulous bangle can do wonders for taking your look up a notch. Don’t believe us? Just try it!

Pair your mom jeans with laid-back pieces like a vintage T-shirt or a chunky knit sweater to run with the retro vibe. In this case, quirky accessories will totally do. Now is not the time to be shy! Let your fashion f lag fly, dolls.
