Waist-high jeans look good on those with a waist. I think the term "mom jeans" was coined to try to make them uncool---retailers need the teens who flock to them to buy the latest "new" fashion every year (even if it is an "old" recycled trend) rather than keep what is still serviceable.

The thing that seems weird to me is that most people do not look good in low-rise jeans. Even people with long legs look dumpy and chopped-off, and those with shorter legs look worse, plus there is the muffin-top issue. This proves the point that if it were "in" to balance an old sock on one's head, some would do it.

I'm keeping my "mom jeans"---I need all the legginess I can get, and I will have the last laugh in 4 years, when they are "in" again, and still going strong.
