Over the past few years, I've been noticing a shift in my wardrobe choices, what once seemed like the holy grail of denim – the beloved skinny jeans – now feels outdated. As trends evolved and comfort became more paramount, I found myself gravitating toward a different style: mom jeans. And when I discovered Mott & Bow's new mom jeans, I knew it was time to officially ditch my skinnies.

Why Mom Jeans Over Skinny Jeans?

Let's face it: skinny jeans had their moment. They were sleek, and stylish, and hugged every curve just right. But they also came with a fair share of discomfort, especially during the warmer months of summer. The thought of squeezing into a pair of skinnies on a hot summer day made me sweat just thinking about it. Enter mom jeans – the relaxed fit, high-waisted saviors of summer fashion and give a cool vibe.

Mott and Bow Mom Jeans


Mott & Bow's mom jeans are a revelation. They give me a perfect balance between comfort and style, offering a fit that is neither too tight nor too loose. The high waistline accentuates the waist, creating a flattering look, while the roomier fit through the hips and thighs provides unmatched comfort. The denim is soft and breathable, making it ideal for those sweltering summer days when you still want to look effortlessly chic.

How To Style Mom Jeans

One of the things I love most about these jeans is their easy-to-style part. Styling mom jeans can be a lot of fun, and they work for so many different looks, some of my favorite ways I’ve mentioned below, might help you!

Casual Look

Madewell Cropped tee


Fila Sneakers




For a laid-back, casual look, I pair it with a simple tucked-in light-color t-shirt in summer and some white sneakers. I usually create this look whenever I have to go for errands or to go out for coffee with friends. Add a crossbody bag and some oversized sunglasses, and you’re good to go!

Party Look

Free People Silk Top


Lulus Mule Heels




Don’t think that you can only wear mom jeans casually, you can also pair them with a silky blouse and some heeled mules. I remember, wearing it with a black silky blouse and everyone couldn’t stop themselves from looking at me. Tuck in the blouse to highlight the high waist, and add a statement belt for a touch of sophistication. 

Summer Look

H&M Tank Top


Bershka Strappy Sandals




For those hot summer days, I love pairing my mom's jeans with a cropped tank top and some strappy sandals. This outfit paired with delicate jewelry is breezy and comfortable, yet stylish enough to take you from a day at the beach to a casual evening out. Throw on a wide-brimmed hat and some delicate jewelry to complete the look.

Vintage Look

Forever 21 Graphic Tee


Skechers Uno HI Ava Max chunky sneakers




Make some serious retro vibes by pairing your mom jeans with a vintage-inspired graphic tee and some chunky sneakers. Roll up the cuffs of the jeans for an extra touch of style, as this look is perfect for weekend outings, music festivals, or any time you want to feel a little nostalgic.

How To Care For Your Jeans

As much as I adore my Mott & Bow mom jeans, taking care of them properly is essential to keep them looking fresh and new for me so here are some tips on how to clean and maintain your mom jeans too!

  • Always wash your jeans inside out in cold water to prevent the fabric from shrinking and to preserve the color. Don’t over-wash your mom's jeans and use a mild detergent to avoid harsh chemicals
  • Avoid using a dryer if possible, air drying helps maintain the integrity of the fabric plus prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can fade the color of your jeans. Dry them in a shaded area instead.
  • When storing your jeans, fold them neatly to avoid creases and wrinkles. Store your mom's jeans in a cool, dry place to prevent any moisture damage or mildew.


Mott & Bow’s mom’s jeans become a staple in my wardrobe, and I can’t imagine going back to the restrictive fit of skinnies. If you haven’t already, I highly recommend giving mom jeans a try, your wardrobe – and your legs – will thank you!
