You’ve probably heard the buzz that skinny jeans are on their way out the door—whether you blame the activewear craze or a simple change of pace, it can’t be denied. We still adore a pair of tight-as-hell skinnies, but the industry and consumer general consensus seems to be that there are more creative (and chic) ways to sport denim this fall. We’ve provided a few options, too.
But what will you be wearing if you don’t wear skinny jeans once the weather turns crisp? Style.com suggests mom jeans as an option, and predicts their return in a big way—but they’re “not your mother’s mom jeans.” Stars like Miley Cyrus and fashion icons like Daria Werbowy are on-board, along with Chloë Sevigny and the always-flawless Jenna Lyons. Mom jeans are being paired with oversize designer belts, blazers, crop tops, and a classic red heel. Click through for serious some mom jeans inspiration.

We were just as excited as anyone for Nasty Gal’s new denim line, but upon closer examination it seems their newest release of LA-made high-rise skinny jeans for chics is kind of… well, Nasty. At least, not very flattering on the model they casted for the shoot. Aside from the Kink High-Rise in Glacier (which sold out quickly after the line launched), the fit looks awkward and the 3-D whiskering around the hips looks like potential for excessive bagginess after one day of wear. As for the yellow skinny, it looks like the model was dipped in a vat of yellow wax and dried upside-down.
We can’t bring ourselves to spring the 80-something bucks to test a pair of these, so if you or someone you know has experienced the fit and feel first-hand, send them our way! We’d like to ask them a few Q’s.

When you hear the term “mom jeans,” we’re betting your initial reaction is something along the lines of a guttural, “Ugh.” But does it have to be? Spanish style blogger Laura took her vintage mom jeans and made them look not-so-unflattering with a sheer, tropical shirt, wedges, and BAMF sunglasses. Some people can definitely pull off this look, but we’re not sold that it’s for everyone. So let’s revisit the question: mom jeans—yeah or nay?
