Unpopular opinion: Jeans are comfortable!
“Mom Jeans” are my favorite kind of jeans because they actually have a comfortable fit. They aren’t obnoxiously tight and fit just like boyfriend jeans (only they are high rise).
If you know me, you know that denim is my favorite thing to wear because it’s so easy to dress up.
Disclaimer: If you’ve never worn mom jeans you may feel weird at first because they’re definitely “baggier” since they are a “straight leg" fit
I’m so picky with jeans and have found these to fit the best.
Here are my top picks:

AMERICAN EAGLE: MOM JEAN, COOL CLASSIC $50
These are what led me to the “Mom Jean” obsession. They are so laid back and actually look good on everyone. Not to mention they are true to size! I seriously believe this is the pair that started the whole trend.
PacSun: Favorite Blue Mom Jeans $60
Another “true to size” pair! These make your behind look ten times better, I swear! But keep in mind that they are a little on the shorter side.
LEVI’S: 501 JEANS (COLOR: DAY DREAMS) $98
I saw these everywhere on Instagram and knew I had to have them. l wear these because they have no rips and are completely work appropriate; however, the brand offers various 501’s with rips.
Now the sizing is SUPER weird and I highly suggest sizing up. The lady at Free People told me to size down because they “stretch” but that was totally untrue and I’m happy I didn’t take her advice. These haven’t changed since I’ve gotten them and that’s what makes me like them so much. (even though I had to size up to a 26!)
Overall the brand has really weird sizing so you’ll have to test your luck if you’re going to order them online. (For Miami peeps, you can try them on at Free People or check out the Levi’s outlet store in Dolphin Mall).
Note: These are vintage! so they’re a harder material because they aren’t made from cotton— but that’s what makes them so unique
AMERICAN EAGLE: MOM JEAN, LIGHT VINTAGE ON SALE FOR $27 RIGHT NOW
I just got these a few weeks ago and I’m loving the comfort. They are super high waisted and look so 90s!
If you’re looking for good Levi’s knockoffs without the vintage material, these are it!
AMERICAN EAGLE: MOM JEAN $60
Cute with heels! I’m too short to wear them with flat shoes because they’re hard to cuff (rips at the bottom) but these are by far my favorite dark wash jeans!
