In a world where women are told to prioritize style over comfort, it’s not surprising that “Saturday Night Live” once produced a skit on “mom jeans,” also known as unflattering pants that mothers and older women tend to wear.

As we’ve seen with many A-List celebrities, high-waisted pants can be cute and even appeal to the opposite sex. This makes sense, as mom pants reveal lots of leg and accentuate female curves. For its May issue, Glamour magazine showcased actresses Emma Stone, Ashley Greene and Freida Pinto in colorful high-waisted shorts, and these girls remind the world that mom shorts aren’t just for ladies who want to hide their guts. Pop sensation Katy Perry has been sporting high-waisted pants for years, and we love her for bringing back the trend.

We’re definitely inspired and impressed by this new fad, so check out the fine females who embrace their hips with the help of mom jeans.
