The new mom jean is a hybrid of the familiar high-waisted skinny and your beloved boyfriend jeans. The loose, straight-leg style sits at your waist, looks best in a vintage-inspired, medium-blue or light wash, and comes in varying lengths. Not ones to be intimidated, we’ve turned to fashion insiders like Vanessa Traina Snow, model Laura Love, and bloggers like Danielle Perlstein of We Wore What, to illustrate how easy it is to pull off.
For an evening out with her sister, Traina Snow styled her pair with a roomy, navy cropped top (similar here) layered over a sheer tank, plus basic black pumps and a slick ponytail.
Teisbaek’s ensemble is further proof that you don’t have to wear a tight top to offset the baggier silhouette of the jeans. Her textured Stella McCartney Tartan Sweater (no longer available) and white Gianvito Rossi Pointed Toe Pumps ($536) elevate the style and are appropriate for a winter lunch or casual cocktails.
Wearing her faded vintage pair to Chanel’s Haute Couture S/S 14 show, model Vacth embodies Parisian cool with black booties and a Chanel tweed coat (similar here).
