Mom jeans can be a tough trend to tackle. A style that's notoriously unforgiving, mom jeans aren't exactly synonymous with sex appeal. Despite this, there's a pair that looks good on every body type and when done correctly, they can be...kind of hot? Most likely, you'll have to try a few styles before you find the one that fits the bill. If you have curves, go with a lower/mid-rise style; if you don't, go with a higher rise option. (That said, anything too high rise will look matronly.) No matter your shape, keep these jeans on the tighter side for an overall more flattering fit. Height is another factor to take into consideration: Shorter and curvier legs will look longer and leaner in floor length versions, while taller gals can rock cropped styles without sacrificing any length. Below, we show you how to make mom jeans hot in three steps or less.
