Mom Jeans vs Boyfriend jeans. This is an issue that causes us many sleepless nights that we’re finally going to talk about.
Some people like to wear boyfriend jeans while others prefer mom jeans. The difference between the two is in their fit – mom jeans are loose, while boyfriend jeans are tighter.
There are a lot of cool ways to wear them, mostly with a bunch of grunge aesthetic clothes to pull it off. This is why we made this post showing 12 great grunge style outfit ideas that feature those denim pants.
Mom Jeans are a style that travels us into back in a more comfortable and simple era, the crazy 90s.
A decade that here, in Ninja Cosmico, we are big fans since we spent our childhood, with no worries whatsoever about the future. Oh, the memories…
Boyfriend jeans vs mom jeans
Being inspired by the 90s, those jeans also evoke a 90, in a way, because they can be considered old school.
Even if the name of “mom jeans” seems something that our mothers will wear (or are wearing), they are actually only jeans that consists of a high waist.
These jeans can be generally stonewashed, but they also come in a light blue shade.
They also fit an everyday casual style without much preparation.
Boyfriend jeans are a type of jean that’s tight, low-waisted, and loose-fitting in the legs. It has a wide waistband that tapers down to a skinny leg opening.
The term was first used in the 1960s and became popular in the 1980s. The style of jeans has been evolving over the years with different styles, cuts, and fabrics being introduced.
The rise in popularity of boyfriend jeans is due to the fact that they are more comfortable and can be worn during all seasons. They have a slimmer fit that makes them feel more like a second skin.
The term was introduced by fashion designer Rachel Comey who said, “I’ve always thought of boyfriend jeans as being very much like mom jeans. They’re not really that tight or anything, but they have this loose-fit feel. They’re comfortable, and you can wear them with anything, whether it’s sneakers or heels. It doesn’t matter.“
Pretty cool, uh?
So there it is! I love these two type of jeans! They are great in a lot of different ways.
See ya next time!
