Mya Says We Can Leave Hip-Hugger Jeans in the Past

Hip-huggers, peasant tops, and skirts over jeans are just a few of the tragic early-2000s trends that I, for one, am glad we’ve retired.

As a staple of the era’s music scene, however, Mya managed to effectively rock several looks so quintessentially of the millennium that they made me question everything I thought I knew about fashion. Though, perhaps her most recognizable look of the 2000s was actually a nod to another time period entirely. “‘Lady Marmalade’ stands the test of time as far as being iconic in the fashion space,” Mya tells Jezebel. “Lots of sex appeal.”

I’m waiting for the low-rise bootcut jeans of my youth to come back.  I have no desire to wear mom jeans and even mid-rise jeans end up a bit mom jean on me because I have NO TORSO.  I used to wear ultra-low-rise jeans without issue back in the day and they are so much more flattering on a petite person with long legs and no torso.  And I *am* a mom.  One who thinks mom jeans make her look like a disaster.  I’m also terrified of cameltoe all the fucking time in them.  They seem so restrictive.
