Fashionista and Blogger, Princess Audu, takes us on a journey of three possible ways of styling the trending mom jeans.

Mom jeans are such closet staples in everyone's wardrobe. It's quite interesting really, how something synonymous to moms looking somewhat unattractive, has somehow taken the fashion world by storm. Now, I don't know about you but I really don't mind. I'm all for modest and comfy fashion which is why mom jeans have become my go-to fit. I've even tossed my skinny jeans aside and put this pair on repeat. And today I'll be showing you three ways to style your jeans from retro, to weekend ready and corporate casual. 

My mom jeans were a thrift buy from the Vintage Closet 9ja, based in Abuja. It only cost me 4,000 naira ($10). However, for cheaper bargains take a trip to Wuse Market and thrift a pair for half the amount I spent. These jeans have previously been styled here and here

Look 1
I decided to go for a retro look which was inspired  by Grace of Gafashion actually. I simply wore my vintage shirt (styled here) backwards and opted for block heels. This look would work great with sneakers too and make for a perfect weekend look. I'd most likely wear this to a casual get together with friends or even a lunch date. 

Jeans: Vintage Closet 9ja || Shoes:Shoe Shop Nigeria (tell her I sent you) || Bag: Asian Site (can't remember) || Shirt: Thrift || Shade: Zaful

This look is my typical weekend style, a kimono (styled herewhich offers a relaxed fit and my mules for comfort. It's quite interesting how much I hated mules before and even wanted them to be left in 2014 but look at me now. This look feature two pieces made by Nigerian designers, the Kimono orginally part of a two piece set and the mules. I'd wear this to run errands or to a casual outing. A simple change of shoes to heels would instantly dress up the look. Also removing the kimono and only opting for the singlet would make for a date night look especially with the addition of strap sandals.

                                  Look 3
I opted for a smart casual look by pairing closet  basic essentials like white shirt, vest previously styled as a as dress here and red pumps. Depending on where you work, this could make a good smart casual look. You could always opt for a proper blazer and it will instantly make this look even more dressy
