Do you remember the Saturday Night Live skit for ‘Mom Jeans’? “For this Mother’s Day, don’t give Mom that bottle of perfume. Give her something that says, ‘I’m not a woman anymore… I’m a mom!'” It was a parody on the 90s style denim that featured a high-rise crotch, morphing your buttocks into a wide sight to see, including a roomy fit throughout the crotch and leg areas. But, regardless of their bad rep, this style of jeans were really popular, and now they’re back! Step aside boyfriend jeans, mom jeans are heavy on the horizon.
From Drew Barrymore to Winona Ryder, and even Kurt Cobain, mom jeans were the bees knees back then. Lara Flynn Boyle, Sherilyn Fenn, and Mädchen Amick of Twin Peaks were photographed in them as well, making me want to dig up my high school high-waist denim. Take a flashback to the nineties with these famous faces and consider this, your mom might be cooler than you if she’s still rocking the late trend.
