Jessica Pigeon, a stylist at Stitch Fix, says, “Mom jeans tend to be high-waisted with a looser fit at the hips and legs. They can be worn with booties, heels, or sneakers depending on the occasion, making them a versatile wardrobe staple.”
“Mom jeans have gained a huge following based on their figure-flattering qualities, assisting with both slimming waistlines and defining your derrière. These jeans naturally accentuate your curves, providing balance and definition, and are perfect for dressing up or down.”
Unlike mom jeans, which are high-rise, boyfriend jeans typically have a low or midrise, comfortably resting on the hip as opposed to on the natural waist. While a mom jean usually has a tapered cut, a boyfriend-style jean tends to have a straight cut.
