mom jeans

February 23, 2016

If there’s one trend we’re glad has come to stay (for so long now!), it’s the ever-versatile mom jean. The fact that it’s a chic take on the baggy 90s silhouette plays second fiddle only to the comfort. Oh, the comfort – nothing beats being able to sidle into the office an image of sophistication, while still feeling like you’ve rolled fresh out of your bed in your pajamas. Personally, my go-to pair is a $7 secondhand bargain I picked up at a Goodwill in the States, but let’s be honest – until you get a chance to go hardcore thrifting abroad, here’re five best fast fashion shops to stock up on your favourite style of mom jeans.


For the Classic Blue Jean: Topshop

MOTO Dark Blue Mom Jeans, S$89.90,

Topshop wins hands down – heck, pants down – for the staple classic blue mom jean. The old-school wash, the roomy yet flattering fit, the impressive selection; a hefty price tag to pay but oh so worth it. Move over, Joni!


For the Rock Chick Acid Wash: Urban Outfitters

It’s the badass rock-and-roll cousin of the homey mom jean – essential for an effortless, laidback look and/or making an outfit three times grungier.


For the Distressed: Boohoo
