The worst fashion (or at least denim) offense is now the hottest fashion trend. Yes, when you’re model thin and tall, you can look good in just about anything — even mom jeans. But their rep for being the ultimate in unflattering isn’t totally true. The high-waist and wider bottom doesn’t require the same flat belly and tiny, high butt as other jeans, and the slightly wider leg of a straight style can be more forgiving than the skinny style. The key to pulling them off is to either show or hide your waist by pairing them with a cropped tops or a tucked in top, or a long tunic, oxford, or oversized sweater.
