This Is How to Style Your Jeans in 2021 in Case, Like Us, You Totally Forgot

I'll be the first to admit that the second we started working from home, I threw my jeans to the back of my closet. They became even more of a distant memory each time I reached for my sweatpants. But a year in, I find myself wanting to start dressing up and slipping into my favorite pair of mom jeans to put together some semblance of an outfit in the morning. Plus, it doesn't hurt that I've been seeing so many amazing street style moments on social media that are getting me even more hyped to dress up.

If you're like me and wondering if there are new ways to style your jeans in 2021, you'd be correct. While Gen Zers have started the heated skinny-jean debate on TikTok, there are even more polarizing trends like low-slung jeans making a comeback, and I kinda don't hate it.
