Fashion is cyclical. In keeping with all of the 80’s nostalgia currently rocking the fashion world, higher-waisted, loose fitting, stonewashed denim is poised for a comeback. Thank Kate Moss. The jeans she wore at the announcement of her new collaboration with Brit retail chain Topshop remind me of thejeans I wore in junior high circa 1989. Whether tucked into ruched socks or worn with high top, these jeans are so out they’re in.

Remember those Mom Jeans from Saturday Night Live with the sexless short-haired soccer moms wearing those relaxed fit, belted-at-their-breasts jeans? This new trend might be the happy medium after years of low rise, plummer butt denim. But stonewash?

Dark jeans are slimming and sophisticated. But the relaxed fit and higher waist of Kate’s trendsetting style have a definite plus side; we may not have to see Tara Reid’s thong anymore.
