Malia Obama was off to work at the Weinstein Company – where she started an internship this week.

She was very fashionably dressed in a pair of super high waisted mom’s jeans, which she clinched with a brown leather belt at the waist. This is exactly how “real” mom’s jeans are supposed to be worn. Baggy, and with a belt as high up at the waist as possible. The light blue wash is totally in sync with the idea of mom’s jeans – remember, these are suppose to be a vintage denim style that has made a come back. Our mothers and even grandmothers did not do ripped or distressed jeans, most of them actually were done in a clean light- to dark blue wash. KUDO’s to Malin for getting it right in her first time feature on Denimology!

Malia’s jeans are from Urban Outfitters, the BDG Mom Jean. The button fly zipper is only half-way, usually a total no-no. But as these are a pair of vintage-made-modern jeans, a half-zipper and a slightly dropped crotch is totally in sync with the style and acceptable.

You can also buy mom’s jeans at Topshop and at ASOS.
