Okay, so I saw this article on Yahoo.com this morning and was horrified. Is this for real? Mom jeans are "back?" Were they ever even a trend?

The article says, "“Fashion is experiencing a wave of ‘90s nostalgia— lots of crop tops, plaid, and layering — and mom jeans right fit right in,” Stephanie Trong, co-editor in chief of Fashionista.com. “But let’s be clear: These aren’t everyday jeans, and they won’t necessarily flatter your body; however, they do poke fun at fashion and make a playful statement.”

Even Urban Outfitters sells a $59 "Mom Jeam" with a tapered, cropped leg; and TopShop now carries Moto Blue Mom Jeans for $66.

What do you think? Cool? Awkward?
