These People Were Rocking Mom Jeans Way Before Vogue 'Made Them Cool'

Posted: Updated:

Here at HuffPost Style, we're not exactly the biggest fans of wearing jeans. But when we found out that so-called "mom jeans" were coming back in style, our hearts (and our waists) couldn't help but sing their praises. Because really, what could be better than a high-waist pant and tapered leg?

Of course, this style of denim is far from new. Way before Vogue started making how-to-look-sexy-in-them videos, these people were showing us the ropes (perhaps unintentionally) for years. And while we're all about a good tutorial, we have to give credit where it's due.

In honor of the comfy comeback, we've rounded up our favorite wearers of the mom jean trend. Take notes, folks. This is how it's done.
