Just a hunch but you probably didn't think your mom was very cool in the '90s.

There are five specific mom trends that present-day fashion girls are repeatedly putting a fresh spin on, and we've highlighted them for you. (Or you could just look at those old photo albums that your mom collects.) Check out the trends ahead.

Another option? Pair bold sandals with equally bold socks.

High-waisted mom jeans are undoubtedly the biggest trend to emerge from this roundup, as fashion girls continue to embrace the cool, vintage-inspired look. 

The coolest shoe style to wear mom jeans with now? Thoroughly modern pointed-toe sock boots.

Dads weren't the only ones to embrace clunky sneakers back in the day (and currently, let's be honest)—'90s moms were also partial to the look.
