It's #NationalThriftStoreDay and finding the perfect pair of mom jeans is challenging, especially if you want the coveted Levi's jeans that are sold at Urban Outfitters, ASOS, and Topshop. I know...you're screaming because they go for $65+. Breathe, boo! Value Village is an incredible budget-friendly and environmentally conscious thrift-store that stocks tons of mom jeans that come in dark, medium, and light washes all (I've even seen them come in burgundy, white, and grey) from $15 and under!
So, you know where to shop, eh? Next, you'll need to know how to find the perfect mom jeans that fit your body.
1) STUDY THE SILHOUTTE:
Thrifting can be overwhelming but know the style and cut you're looking for to speed up the browsing time. Mom jeans have that 90s super high-rise, fitted around the waist, and a straight or baggy leg fit. STYLE TIP: You can still wear mom jeans year round. In the Fall 2017, pair them with a fitted sweater and in the Winter layering tights underneath. Spring pair with an off-the-shoulder top and in the Summer, throw on a crop top.
2) TRY ON EVERYTHING, SERIOUSLY
This is KEY to finding the perfect pair of mom jeans: try on every single pair that catches your eye, even the jeans are a size or two larger. Don't roll your eyes at me! Trust me when I tell you to read the label but you've got to see how they fit on your amazing body. I prefer over-sized jeans but I could have thrifted a smaller size. STYLE TIP: Place the top of the jeans around your neck. If it fits all the way around your neck then you've found your perfect fit. If not then size up or down!
3) UPGRADE YOUR DENIM
After you've found the perfect fit, you need to make it your own. Whatever your style is, have fun with your new denim. Keep it minimal and cut the ankle or go preppy by getting them altered at a tailor. STYLE TIP: Get creative by adding political pins, distressing and rips, or feminist patches? These additions are still trendy for Fall 2017.
