Mom jeans don't exactly have the best reputation when it comes to flattering clothing. The straight-leg style always tends to be a bit too high-waisted and a bit too ill-fitting in all the wrong places. But leave your preconceived notions at the door: This Seoul-style shot kinda makes us wonder, "What's the matter with mom jeans anyway?"
Ji Youn Han, seen here, leads by example with a pair of light-colored, high-waisted denim. Paired with a set of platform heels that make her legs look a few miles long, Han keeps things youthful and vibrant with a bold, patterned top and her hair in a neat, tidy top knot.
We can't guarantee that mom jeans will be the next of-the-moment must in Seoul, or any other city, but we're certainly a fan of anyone who proves that all style rules are made to be broken — or, at least, bent.
