The most important things to consider when styling a professional outfit with mom jeans are shoes and tops. It also helps to pick either black or dark wash denim or even white jeans to keep things looking sleek and polished. Pair your mom jeans with a nice blazer and sleek ankle boots for a professional and comfortable finished look.  


Classy Mom Jean Outfits

Just because mom jeans are casual by nature doesn’t mean you can’t class them up a bit! A stylish pair of high heels that make a statement can take your mom jeans to a whole new level of class. Pair a chic silky blouse with a tailored suit jacket for a classy and refined look. Choosing the right jewelry can class up your mom jeans. Opting for a light denim wash or white jeans can really pull this whole look together. It would be best to avoid distressed or ripped mom jeans if you’re looking to achieve a timeless and classy look.  


Trendy Mom Jean Outfits 


Seeing as mom jeans are trending hard right now, it doesn’t take much to achieve a trendy and edgy outfit while wearing them. Some great ideas to pair for an edgy and trendy look are leather jackets, oversized sweaters, and cropped t-shirts. Opt for ripped jeans or distressed denim looks in your mom jeans. As far as shoes go, a chunky white sneaker or combat boot can take this look to the next level of trendy streetwear.
