We're having a fashion moment but honestly, we can't decide our emotions about the latest trend. One Keeping Up With the Kardashians star's latest outfit is a borderline optical illusion.

Kendall Jenner has been known far and wide to adore denim, constantly ditching floaty dresses or skirts in favour of ripped jeans in all shapes and forms.

The model stepped out in West Hollywood wearing a pair of wide-leg mom jeans by Olivia Øblanc with a frayed trim detail…but things weren't as they seemed.

The jeans were BACKWARDS. The 23-year-old makes some edgy fashion choices and rolls out the outfit inspiration, but the Calabasas-native's jeans are just mind-boggling.

The 'Unisex Double Front Frayed Jeans' are made of two separate pairs of recycled jeans, sewn together to make a trippy denim hybrid.

Kendall managed to make the outfit look as stylish as can be, as per usual.

If you're interested in grabbing a pair for yourself, you can nab them for a cool $175 (€156) on the Olivia Oblanc website here.

We have to say, before Kylie Jenner decided to don a pair of these wedgie jeans, we were a little sceptical.

Before now, when 'mom jeans' came to mind, all we thought about was our mothers coming to collect us at the school gate wearing shapeless, baggy trousers – but their new re-vamp is totally making them cool again.

The re-vamped Levi mom jean is now called the wedgie jean and we're digging them.

They're high-waisted and cinch in your tummy, while also giving your bum a little lift. How perfect.

"The Wedgie is inspired by girls [who] were downsizing a vintage 505 and wearing it very close and almost vacuum-packed to the rear-ends — hence the affectionate and cheeky name," Jonathan Cheung, senior vice president of Levi's Global Design told Mashable.

So, we kinda need a pair. But if you don't have time to head to the shops, you can buy them here



After years of shimmying into skinny jeans, denim is finally getting an overhaul with the rise of retro-inspired baggy, high-waisted styles.

One of the most notable new trends hitting the high street this season is the mom jean. Made of non-stretchy denim with a bootleg cut and hugging around the waist and hips, the mom jean is not the most flattering of styles, but worn right you can still look great.

Here are a few ways to style this most awkward of denim trends…

1. Supersize it
Forget slimline tailoring and go for an oversized blazer or box cut jacket. The severe cut works well with the more relaxed denim look.


2. Give your outfit the boot
Flat or heeled ankle boots look great with mom jeans, just be sure to roll or turn up the legs to show off some skin.


3. Stay classy
A crisp white shirt goes with just about any denim style, and the mom jean is no exception. Add heels or keep it relaxed with trainers like this street styler.


4. Tuck it in
Make a flowing top work with your high waisted denim by tucking it in loosely, á la Fearne Cotton.


5. Relive the Eighties
Bleached leather and denim are having a serious revival, and we love how this biker jacket looks with high waisted jeans.


6. Cute and cropped
Kendall Jenner knows how to work a crop top and we love her punk chic look here. For something a little less form-fitting, try a cropped sweater or a looser cropped tee.
