Ecologie Vintage

The Mom Jean

Nancie VannComment

With Fall 2016 approaching, the biggest trend so far in street-style fashion is the recurrence of "mom" jeans, but this time, it's not just for moms.  In fact, it's not for moms at all.  15-25 year olds are discovering the beauty of high-waisted, figure flattering denim. Their mothers and grandmothers are wishing they hadn't given away all those vintage Levi's and Calvin Klein, because true vintage jeans are costing them upwards of $50.00 a pair at trendy stores such as Urban Outfitters.

From the late 1970's until the late 1990's, mom jeans ruled.  High-waisted pants and skirts were the staple for any fashion-loving woman.  As Millenniums grew into pre-teens and started shopping at the mall, the waistlines on their jeans got lower and lower.  Eventually, the public display of the thongs they sported underneath was viewed as an acceptable wardrobe malfunction.  Ultra low-waisted pants were all the rage for years, but eventually, the trend toward higher waistlines began to emerge, and here we are in 2016 seeking out vintage mom jeans wherever we can find them.

Ecologie has sold high-waisted shorts for six summers straight, and now, is proud to offer you a large selection of mom jeans as well.  We have Levi's, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Lee, Chic, Sassoon, Jordache, and many more.  Our prices are less than other retailers ranging from $16.99 - $29.99.  If you purchase jeans from us, we will distress them or cut the knees out for you at no charge. We don't know how long this trend will hang around, but we are betting it is here to stay for a few years, so come on in, and try on as many as you need to find just the right pair for you!
